Tax Refund Subscriptions are services provided by Charge Point Operators in Denmark. 

If you decide to set up tax refund subscription you will become a 3rd party service provider. As a service provider, your company becomes responsible for the charge point and it will be managing the charge point maintenance, troubleshooting, approving charge point meter readings, issuing tax refund and reporting to SKAT.

In this guide you will learn how to create a tax refund subscription plan via the Monta Portal.

For Select "Charge point"You must select "Charge point" in this field. Tax refund subscriptions cannot be applied for whole Teams.

Each charge point must have an individual tax refund subscription, so it can measure the kWh consumption per charge point meter.
Price model Select "Per charge point"
Does the subscription require approval before being activated? Select "Yes".You must select "Yes" in this field.

As tax refund subscriptions require a series of specific actions before the subscription can be approved, you need to manually approve each new subscription.
Can the subscription be canceled from the app?Select "Yes" or "No"If you select "Yes", your customer can cancel the subscription by themselves.

If you select "No", your customer needs to reach out to you to cancel the subscription.

We recommend to review your cancelation policy in the contract you sign with your customers and make an educated decision, based on that.
Currency Currency is DKK.
Monthly Price incl. VAT Type out the price of the plan, inclusive of VAT.Monta gets 15% commission of the monthly plan price at the time of purchase.

Different rates may apply, according to your contract with Monta.
Payout per kWhAmount of DKK you are going to refund the user for each kWh charged.As a tax refund provider it is your responsibility to follow the SKAT regulations and make a decision on how much you want to refund your customers.
Price includes VAT?If you select "Yes", VAT will be shown in the calculation, the receipt and it will reflect in your invoice.

If you select "No", this will not change the tax refund calculation, but VAT will not be shown in the receipt or in your invoice.
As a tax refund provider it is your responsibility to follow the Danish government's regulation of paying tax refund inclusive of exclusive of VAT.

Please note that selecting "Yes" or "No" does not change the calculation in the Monta system. Tax refund is always calculated as:

kWh charged X Payout per kWh = Tax refund payed out
Auto transfer, should we just transfer after each charge?If you select "Yes",tax refund will be issued as soon as the charge is done and Monta has registered the charged kWh.

If you select "No", tax refund can be issued either manually by you, or with a scheduled Quarterly task (see below).
We recommend to base this decision on the contract with your customer.

If you state that you provide instant tax refund, then you should select "Yes".

If for any reason, the customer needs to receive the tax refund quarterly, then you should select "No".
Requires charge point to be connectedIf you select "Yes", the subscription can be applied only on charge points that have been connected to Monta.

If you select "No", the subscription can also be applied on "Passive" charge points.
If you select "Yes", and your plan is on the Marketplace, users cannot see your plan until they have connected their charge point to Monta.

This can make it easier for you, as the charge point is most probably already operational and you just need to approve the subscription.

We recommend to put "No", if you are only going to be applying the subscription to charge points under your Operator.

This way you can apply the subscription before you even connect it to Monta.
Should we schedule a task to transferIf you select "Quarterly", tax refund will be transferred once per Quarter.

If you select "Off", there will be no task scheduled to transfer tax refund.
This depends on your setting for "Auto transfer" of tax refund.

If you selected to instantly transfer tax refund, then here you should select "Off", because a task is not needed.

If you selected to not issue tax refund immediately, then here you have to select "Quarterly".
Type of serviceIf you select "Box swap" you have to replace a charge point that is broken or malfunctioning in some way.

If you select "On-site" you have to send an installer to repair a charge point when this is required.
As a service provider, you take responsibility for the charge points under your subscription plan.

Therefore, you must provide hardware maintenance to the charge points you support.
