Update Sales and Purchase Ledgers for GST Compliance

If many items you sell have the same tax rate, specify the tax rate and other GST details in your sales ledger. Similarly, if the items you purchase have the same tax rates, update your purchase ledger.

If you sell items with multiple tax rates, you can maintain a single sales ledger and record all GST details at the stock item or stock group level. Similarly, you can create a single purchase ledger.

The HSN details, tax rate, and type of supply selected in sales and purchase ledger will be applicable to all items or services selected in a transaction where these ledgers are applied. These details specified in the stock items will be overridden in the transaction with the details configured in the sales or purchase ledger.
