Stop Calculation of Kerala Flood Cess (KFC) in TallyPrime

The Kerala Government has announced that the Flood Cess will be discontinued or stopped with effect from 1st August, 2021, so the dealers should ensure that KFC will no longer be calculated through the accounting software from the said that forward. The Flood Cess that has been collected on the sale of products and services to the intra-state consumers for the past two financial years, effective from 1st August, 2019 – 31st July, 2021, will be stopped from 1st August, 2021. This Cess will not be levied further.

TallyPrime has always provided the flexibility to define the Cess percentage available at the Company level, Stock Item level, Stock Group level, Ledger level, and even at the transaction level. You can set or alter the Tax Rate or Cess applicable to your businesses when the changes are announced. Alternatively, you can remove the Cess rate from where you have defined it earlier, either from the respective master, or from the transaction itself.
