Does Not Transfer Taxes appropriately from daily sales

The new method of transferring the taxes collected from square, makes the sales tax reporting in Xero unusable. When I spoke with Xero, they claimed that they switched to third party provider (Amaka) that could offer better service, and that I would need to speak to them. When I asked Amaka (Square) They said that they made accounts for each tax rate, but that the sales will no longer have the sales tax rate applied to the invoice making the reporting in Xero non-functional.

Great customer service support!

Jam was really amazing to work with! She went above and beyond to ensure we fixed the issue. She has very good system and integration knowledge. It was a great experience.

Never use Square, Nor Ever

Used it 2 years ago and needed to get Fair trade involved to get my money. Thieves! Now, I wanted to give them another chance. Guess what? ZERO communication with these thieves. How can you entrust your finances, YOUR MONEY with a company that DOES NOT CARE ABOUT YOU but only your money? Pathetic bunch of money suckers, that's all I can tell about this clan!
