Manage Charge Point Readings

This section is not relevant for every tax refund provider. Here, you can manage the manual charge point meter readings, submitted by your customers.

Manual meter readings are required only for charge points, which are not set up to submit their meter readings to Monta automatically. You control if you support charge points with manual meter readings from the Supported Models section in the Tax Refund plan on Monta Portal.

  1. Click on "Charge point readings"
  2. Filter readings by state
    • This way you can see which readings are "Pending" and you need to review
  3. Click on "Request readings" to mass request your customers to submit a meter reading
    • The request will only be sent to customers who need to submit manual readings
  4. Click on "Export" to receive a CSV of all manual meter readings
  5. Click on "Evaluate" to review a meter reading
    • Make sure there is a picture of the charge point meter in the reading
    • In the picture, the meter kWh number must be clearly visible and recognizable
    • The written kWh must match the kWh number in the picture
    • If these are not present, you should decline the reading and request a new one
  6. Select "Yes" to issue tax refund straight away
    • Carefully review the estimated tax refund to make sure the number makes sense
  7. Click on "Approve"

View Tax Refunds

In this section you can see all tax refunds you have issued and Bulk create tax refunds if needed.

Bulk creation of tax refunds is a very edge case function. Tax refund should be either issued automatically, or managed on an individual subscription level. Consult with your Account Manager before using this function.

  1. Click on "Tax refunds" to see all tax refunds you have issued
  2. Click on "Bulk create" if needed
    • Only applies to customers with automatic meter readings
  3. Click on "Payout tax refund"
