Fixed rate taxes
A fixed tax is a tax that is measured against a fixed rate, rather than a percentage of the tax base. Fixed taxes are used in various countries and typically apply to luxury goods and services. Using Elorus, you can now create fixed taxes simply by specifying the tax amount.
A fixed tax may also be applied progressively, so that the final tax amount increases in proportion to purchased quantity. For example in Greece, a special form of tax should be applied to coffee consumption. The tax rate is 3€ per kg and therefore the total tax amount increases as the purchased quantity increases. Within Elorus, to create this kind of tax simply enable the "amount depends on quantity" option.
