Other Charges for Weight

The Calculation of Other Charges on a Big Business Quote, Sales Order or Invoice can be used in a variety of ways including:

-Automatically entering a “Fixed Amount” to be included in the Total, but excluded from the Subtotal and Tax (e.g. flat handling charge)
-Calculating a “Percentage of Subtotal” (e.g. Discount, Surcharge, Freight by value)
-Calculating a “Percentage of Taxable“ (e.g. a second tax, VAT, GST, regional tax)
-Calculating a “Percentage of Total“ (e.g. Discount, Surcharge, cumulative Tax)
-Calculating “Weight By” a dollar amount (e.g. Freight by weight)

This Solution describes creating a Second Tax using the Other Charges field. Look for other Solutions describing the other uses of Other Charges.
