Senior Citizen (SC) & Person With Disabilities (PWD) Discount

Under the implementing rules and regulations of Republic Act No. 9994, Senior Citizens (SC) and Person With Disabilities (PWD) are entitled to a 20% discount and an exemption from the 12% Value-Added Tax (VAT) on the sale of goods and services.

KaHero POS now has a feature that allows you to apply Senior Citizen/PWD discounts to your transaction tickets. You don't need to manually add the discounts through listings.

Make sure your BIR Compatible feature is enabled for the Senior Citizen/PWD Discount feature to appear. Enable it.

Double-check that you have encoded the correct BIR settings of your business.

After enabling the feature, you can now apply Senior Citizen/PWD discounts to your transactions.

Applying SC/PWD Discounts

On the Register, select the items to add to your ticket. Then click the discount button.

Select Senior Citizen/PWD Discount.

Input the total customers that are legible to avail the discount. Specify the number of Senior Citizens or the number of Person With Disabilities. Click Okay.

SC/PWD Discount Computation

This is how to compute the sub-total and VAT, SC/PWD discount, and grand total on KaHero POS. We will use this sample transaction.

Finding the Sub-total and the VAT

Total Item Selling Price: PHP 360.00
VAT rate: 12%

Sub-total = Total Item Selling Price / 1.12

Sub-total = 360 / 1.12 = PHP 321.43

VAT = Total Item Selling Price - Sub-total

VAT = PHP 38.57

Finding the SC/PWD Discounts

Senior citizens and Persons with Disabilities are entitled to a 20% discount from their sub-total.

SW/PWD Discount: VAT + (Sub-total x 0.20)

SC/PWD Discount = 38.57 + (321.43 x 0.20) = PHP 102.86

Finding the Grand Total

Grand Total = Sub-total - SC/PWD Discount

Grand Total = 321.43 - 64.29 = PHP 257.14
