How do we change the meal price to 12.5% VAT?

From 1 October 2021 and until 31 March 2022, the UK government has introduced a temporarily reduced VAT of 12.5%. You can see details of this on their website here. You can use the new VAT amount of 12.5% for staff meals if needed by following the instructions below.

Go to School > Meals > Setup. Click into the Prices section.

You should now have four staff prices. Finally, you will need to set the initial staff price as inactive.
