Did you know that many hotels are unknowingly non-compliant with IRS tip requirements? Recent updates to IRS Tip Reporting Guidelines require hotels to report Service Charge as Wages, and not as Tips.
Evention created Self Service Tip Outs to eliminate the industry-wide challenges that hotels face in working to comply with these IRS and internal audit regulations.
The majority of POS systems do not offer the functionality for a hotel associate to identify whether the “Tip Out” is a Service Charge or a Charged Tip. The POS systems often record this transaction as Charged Tips, the defaulted category within the program. To comply, hotels are left with manual processes and even paper tip-sheets to work around these limitations.
Cue Self Service Tip Outs by Evention! This solution not only guarantees complete tip compliance, but also simplifies the tip out process for both cashier employees and management.
Cashier employees make the tip outs themselves and management simply balances and approves tip out transactions. Using this straightfoward and easy-to-navigate solution, employees make tip outs to either a pool or an individual employee and identify the transaction as either a service charge or a charged tip.
Comprehensive tracking and workflows provide the management team with detailed reports and verification.
