Some countries require the customer tax number to be printed on a customer's receipt, for example in order to claim VAT. Users can enter and edit a customer's tax number from the DEAR POS application. Users can also add Customer Tax Number to the POS Receipt template. 

We have included a sample receipt template with the tax number included that you can upload into DEAR.
