  1. Tax-exempt rates should allow for derived from taxed rates. The current functionality requires US properties to maintain 2 Base Rates -- 1 taxed and 1 tax-exempt. The taxes are irrelevant to the base rate pricing, and a are function of the guest type (church, government, non-profit), OTA pays tax, or 30+ day stay. There is no reason they should be managed separately from other rates.

  2. It would be great if there was an option to split payments.
    IE. guest need 2 separate invoices, but paid all in once. >> now payments have to be split manually, which leaves room for errors.

  3. Some guests have valid government documents which exempt them from paying any lodging taxes, etc. (VAT etc). There should be some checkbox that allows for the room rate to stay fixed but no taxes to be posted as liabilities. Tax Exempt reason should be collected and added to reservation

    There should be a separate report of such reservations per month as well.

  4. Many larger properties in the United States route rules on reservation level. For instance, in business travel, you need to route all room and tax to the paymaster and leave incidentals on the guest bill.

  5. When creating a new reservation, on the right handside, the total is including all the added products & city tax. We should be able to see a subtotal NOT including the City Tax.
    Further more, as we could only see the average rate before, it would be great to have the rate detailed per night.

  6. The City tax product should be loaded so to not impact the rate. Should the number of guests in a room evolve (from two to one), the nightly rate of the room should not be impacted. One city tax should simply be removed from the billing.

  7. Currently, the city tax is not shown or added in the booking engine but only when guests have completed their booking. They then recieve a booking confirmation with a higher amount (city tax added on top of total booking amount), which causes a lot of questions. Therefore, the final amount (room + city tax) should be shown in the last step of the booking engine before the guests confirms the booking.

  9. To expand on the new Group Blocks feature, I would love a simple Group Block Agreement form/report that summarizes the number of rooms blocked, the dates associated with the rooms and the nightly (pre-tax) rooms rate.

    It would have a customizable "terms" section where we can note cancelation policies, block release date etc and have a signature page for the client to sign.

    Right now we have to generate this outside of Mews, which creates additional work. Happy to send you a sample of what we are looking for!

    Thanks for listening!

    Hello Stacy,


    Thank you very much for sharing your feedback with us. If you are able to share an example, that would be very helpful for us to understand the information you envision being added to a block.


    Which types of groups would you typically add "terms' for? For example corporates or leisure. 

  10. The Market Segment should appear on this report (like in Guestline Postings Report) so that we can relate actual daily revenue to market segments after deduction of tax and Breakfast etc.

  11. We would like to change the listing of positions on the invoice. At the moment guests see the invoice like this:
    -overnight
    -breakfast
    -tourist tax

    This is not perfect / a little confusing as guests book their room always including breakfast. We want the listing to be like this:
    -overnight (price including breakfast) --> bill as package
    -tourist tax
     no splitting for the overnight and the breakfast. But tourist tax should still be mentioned separately.

  12. Dear Software Team,

    Greetings from Amsterdam. We have a feature request that I believe would improve the user experience and add more value to the businesses. I would like to suggest adding a column for the guests’ date of birth into the reservation report.

    The addition of the date of birth column would provide several benefits. Firstly, it would allow businesses to better understand their customer demographics. In addition, it is obligatory to have a report including date of birth, to submit for the deduction of local (Amsterdam) guests for the city tax (for the yearly submittance to the local…

  13. Currently when you create a routing rule you can select a product category to be routed. However when doing so you need to also select either the nights or city tax to be routed. It would be good if you could select just a product category.

  14. There are some legal environments where the threshold tax applies. It means that if the rate of the stay is below a specific amount (e.g. $50/night), the occupancy tax doesn't apply.

    The tax logic in Mews doesn't support it which prevents hostels to use Mews in regions like San Francisco or British Columbia.

    The tax logic should treat nights above and below certain price range differently.

  15. Some small changes in the usability:
    - Simplification of the date input for reports and reservation window, in which the start and end correlate to each other. If I select a start date in the future, the end date will also appear in the future, similar to the reservation input.
    - Make grayed numbers selectable at the date of the next month.
    - Extend reservation and manager report by another date input for the following functions: how many bookings were made in time period X for time period Y.
    - Enable statistics showing which nightly added products are assigned to…

  16. At the moment cancellation Policy for products on a rate group is determined by that products way it is consumed, so say for instance I want to charge the guest for only the first night room tax and breakfast, the breakfast still gets charged for every day of the stay if it is defined to be consumed nightly. this leads to much manual work for frontdesk to be able to charge the cancellation fee correctly.
    A way for the products to be charged a cancellation fee "individually" according to that specific rate group seems the way to adjust this.

  17. Due to the change that already closed invoices cannot be rewritten to company, it is mandatory that MEWS absolutely does not close any invoices automatically. Payments that are received directly after posting, for example, are posted directly against the product and the invoice is closed. Here I can not change the company address from now on. However, on this first invoice the tax statement is visible. If this invoice is charged back and recreated so that it is issued to the company, unfortunately the tax statement is missing here. MEWS is no longer allowed (at least in Germany) to automatically…

  18. Exclude (or separate) non-revenue form the manager reports totals. City tax (or any others) an payments are now included in the revenue totals while it isn’t revenue.

  19. MEWS calculates prices with and without VAT per product and presents them per product on the invoice.

    At the end of the invoice MEWS presents the summary of the prices with and without VAT per VAT.

    On huge invoices the calculated and presented total price without VAT is not the same as the summary of the presented prices without VAT per product due rounding differences.

    Guests/companies/ accounting are complaining about this.

    THEREFORE PLEASE ADJUST and do not present the price per product without VAT per product. (only VAT in %, amount and price with VAT)

    OTHER CONSIDERATIONS:
    Show VAT &…

  20. Can we please have "Additional Expenses" grouped together the same way Products group on the "Items" tab in the reservation screen. Currently these show line by line and for City Tax for longer stays this creates a massive list. It is then harder to handle as you have cancel them 1 by 1, which then forces the PMS to refresh after each cancellation!
    We have different agreements with OTAs and sometimes the CT is already covered in a different way.
    This would be beneficial for other Expenses introduced in tot he system later on.
    It should be a quick win…
