Your charges for services related to a taxable sale are generally taxable. This is true whether you itemize the charges or if you include them in the price of the product. For example, suppose that the taxable sale of a computer program includes 20 hours of training and the customer cannot purchase the program without training services. Training is taxable as part of the sale, whether you show a separate charge on your bill or charge an amount for the program and training together.
Ask the professional about minimum service rates and group smaller jobs together to maximize maintenance staff time and money. A maintenance staff can charge a minimum fee for their services to ensure that they cover their company's operating expenses every time they accept a job. Since maintenance personnel must come to you to do the required work, excessive travel time, mileage, and gasoline can affect the labor costs of maintenance personnel. If maintenance personnel charge an hourly rate, the minimum service fee is usually the equivalent of a minimum number of hours, regardless of how small the job is.
There's no right or wrong way for a maintenance person to charge for their service; just make sure you understand how your maintenance staff charges for the work they must have done before the job begins. A maintenance person should inform you in advance if a travel fee will be applied to the total price of your services. Please note that if your bill includes both taxable and non-taxable charges along with a detailed service charge, part of the service charge may not be taxable. The minimum service fee also helps maintenance personnel calculate the time and effort needed to book a customer, arrive at the workplace, and prepare for work.
