Composition Dealers! Activate GST in Tally

Compositions dealers must comply with fewer regulations, are not required to use a predefined format of GST tax invoice, are not required to enter the credit chain, and must file fewer returns. Despite this, composition dealers must follow a set of rules and regulations.
