How can I deduct a back bar fee for my services?
This article shows you how to deduct a back bar fee for your services before calculating commissions for your staff members.
Mangomint supports both pre and post commission deductions. Both of these can also be set up as a percentage or a flat dollar amount.
To adjust these settings, go to Settings > Services.
Select the service and tap on Edit.
Tap on Additional Options.
Enter a Pre or Post Commission and Save.
Calculating the Back Bar Fee
Let us use these values as an example:
Service Price: $100
Staff Member Commission: 50%
This deduction gets taken out before the commission gets calculated.
By using the values above, a $5 pre-commission deduction would result in a $47.50 staff commission.
$100 service price less $5 back bar fee = $95
50% commission on $95 = $47.50
This deduction gets taken out after the commission gets calculated.
By using the values above, a $5 post-commission deduction would result in a $45.00 staff commission.
50% commission on $100 service price = $50
$50 less $5 back bar fee = $45.00
If any pre or post deduction is set up, you can review this in the payroll report with the detailed option enabled.
