Special Economic Zones (SEZ) are the areas where the economic regulations are different from the rest of the country. With simpler tax regimes and comparatively easier compliance rules to follow, companies registered under SEZ schemes have tax benefits such as 100% Income Tax exemption on export income and exemption from Central Sales Tax, Exemption from Service Tax and Exemption from State sales tax.
If your company or business falls under SEZ, as per the Special Economic Zone Act 2005, then you can easily set up a Company with compliance rules applicable to your business in TallyPrime.

Before you set up a Company in TallyPrime and start recording transactions on a day-to-day basis, there are some prerequisites that you need to meet.
When you want to set up a Company in a special economic zone, you need to submit a proposal to the concerned Development Commissioner, who submits the proposal to an approval committee.
Once your proposal is accepted, your business gets all the benefits of a company in SEZ such as duty-free import (or domestic) procurement of goods for development or 100% Income Tax exemption on export income.
Once you set up a business under SEZ, you can easily use TallyPrime to record your transactions. All you need to do is download TallyPrime Release 3.0 or a later release, which has a simpler facility to enter GST-related details of your SEZ business.
The supply of goods or services to or from SEZ companies are considered as exports and imports respectively, as the SEZs are considered a different area. Since SEZ companies have tax benefits, the GST applicability on transactions of an SEZ company differs from that of a Regular company.
