Record Adjustment of Turnover (VAT)

You can create a journal voucher to account for the adjustment of turnover for Maharashtra VAT.

In the old e-filing template of Maharashtra, for composition tax, there was a provision to capture the deduction of 85% of the sale value from sale of second hand motor vehicles as only 15% of the total sale value was taxable. To capture this deduction, Adjustment of Turnover was provided as the Nature of Adjustment. As this adjustment is not applicable in the new template, the value of this transaction is not captured in the VAT forms.
