How to add taxes in Timely

Timely will automatically calculate the tax contribution for each item on your invoices, based on the default tax rate. You can set up one tax rate for all of your services and products, or assign tax to your products and services individually.

Only one tax rate can be applied to an invoice item at a time.

When it comes time to raise an invoice, the tax type will be shown next to the corresponding services and products. If tax is exclusive for that service or product then the tax will be added to the subtotal for that item:

The invoice total will how show much tax is included for the entire invoice.
