The profit margin scheme of tax applies to second-hand goods, antiques, and collector's items, where tax is applied on the profit margin achieved on the supply rather than the full value. Therefore, the tax liability is applicable only on the profit margin. In Tally.ERP 9, since tax is not charged on the entire amount, the tax liability for the profit margin is recorded using an adjustment journal voucher.
Purchase of used goods for sale on profit margin should also be recorded by selecting Domestic Purchase - Profit Margin as the Nature of transaction. This will ensure that there is no tax applicability on the purchase or the sale of the same stock item, but only on the profit margin on sale.
