This week, we are introducing another new feature to our catering software: a powerful sales tax management module.

Caterers need different tax rates based on different tax areas or items or tax agencies, so we’ve upgraded your ability to handle taxation in CaterZen.

Watch the video below to learn more:

Completely Customizable Tax Rates

Our sales tax module provides you with the flexibility to set up tax rates for every kind of taxing scenario for your business.


Create categories for different types of tax rates, and then apply these taxes automatically to associated types of orders in CaterZen. For example, you can set up a food sales rate and apply it to all menu items, or a delivery fee to all deliveries.

By Area and Order Type

Easily create specific tax rates for different types of orders and locations.

For example, when setting up a delivery tax, you’re able to assign a tax rate for a delivery area by store location, state, city or zip code.

Then you can select specific menu items from your account where you can apply this tax.

Single and Combined Rates

For further flexibility, you can combine single tax rates into a combined rate, like a sales tax plus a liquor tax that can be applied to selected items or areas.

Everything gets automatically applied to the appropriate items in orders you take through the system or that your clients place through CaterZen's online ordering platform.

Integration with Accounting Module

One of CaterZen’s biggest benefits is how our sales, marketing and operations tools integrate with each other.

All tax information is clearly and accurately listed in your tax reports in our catering accounting software module, to help you pay your taxes and fill out your tax returns.
