Add Funds To Group Without Tax

I know this is a bit of a necrobump, but with the recent “every transaction must pend for 3 days” update, this is needed now more than ever. Was gonna make a thread about it, but I found this one, so here’s my newish suggestion to this.

Because of this ^. (I.e. you have to use group funds on group items, instead of personal funds) it can be extremely annoying to have to:
A. Lose 30% of your funds which were already taxed 30% when you earned them somewhere else
B. Have to wait 3 days to do something as simple as purchase a badge
C. Not be able to do anything related to a simple badge for 3 whole days

So, my ideal solution.
A group owner can free transfer funds to their group. No wait period. No 30% fee.

I’m really not a whole taxation is thieving kind of person when it comes to the US Government. Taxes are necessary evils to keep society running. However. What is even the point of Roblox Taxes? It’s not like our Robux goes towards upkeep of Roblox’s servers, paying staff, or anything else like that. Our Memberships do that. The taxes on Roblox are simply to keep our profits smaller.

You know, I’ve never understood the reasoning behind taxes on Roblox either. I understand it for NBC members, but for BC members and above, I think it’s pretty pointless. Then again, I’m pretty sure they make more from in-game transactions than their memberships. For instance, top devs pull in 2 million a year, while their membership is only 125 USD a year. :man_shrugging:

EDIT:

I realized the reasoning behind the taxes as I was writing this. Which is why my opinion changed so sharply near the end. :joy:

I want to amend that I think this is good idea now.

Badges are now only create-able with funds from whatever group is uploading them. This makes working with groups made for test servers extremely difficult to work with because you need to create group shirts and wait 3 days for pending sales before you can even upload a badge (away from the main server) to test, for example.

I’ve been needing a feature like this for over two years now. I literally had to create a group and fill it with gamepasses for my non-group game, just so I could have a nice stash of robux to pay my workers with. Because of how unstable games can naturally be, I always have to have a nice balance of robux floating around on said group. I’ve spent 300k in one month, and then 20k in the next. Meaning I have thousands of dollars just sitting in that group, on the off chance that I assign a bunch of work all of the sudden.

I shouldn’t have to balance getting a higher tier or lower tier devex by the end of the month with keeping the balance in my group at a safe amount.

Let me deposit my hard earned and already-taxed-robux into my own group

Groups have became more and more popular and almost a must for development teams as they provide an easy way to pay your developers/contributors through the group funds. Group funds can only be put in through players purchasing products sold by the group like, dev products and clothing. However developers don’t have an easy way to deposit their own robux into the funds.

Currently the only way developers can put robux into their groups is by buying one of the groups products them self. This creates lots of issues. The first issue is developers get taxed each time they want to put some robux into their group funds meaning they lose robux and potentially lose out on DevEx money. The second issue is the time it takes for the robux to get into the group funds. Funds could take up to about 4 or 5 days to proceed meaning developers may lose out on productivity in their games as they can’t pay their developers. The last issue is developers have to take time to adjust the prices or even create new products just so they can deposit x amount of robux in their group.

Developers need to be able to deposit robux into their groups funds easily because they need to be able to pay their developers before the group has even made any robux yet. Why do developers have to go through such a long process just to get a few robux into their group. Most importantly why do they have to get taxed just for depositing robux to pay someone.

The solution to this issue would be to have a deposit button in the group admin that only the group owner can use to deposit robux into the group. This button would avoid all taxes/processing times and provide an easy way for developers to deposit robux in their groups. This feature will also help to increase developers DevEx rates that was recently discussed.
