GST Sales with Discount at the Item Level

While recording a sales transaction, you can easily enter the discount rate or amount for each stock item. To consider discounts for GST sales, you have to create a discount ledger and then select it in the invoice.

GST is calculated by considering the discount entered for each stock item after you enable the cash/trade discount option in the invoice. The corresponding tax values will appear in the GST analysis of items on the printed invoice.
