Update Sales and Purchase Ledgers for GST

After completing the first step of activating the GST configurations in Tally Prime as a regular dealer or composition dealer, and if many of the items you sell have the same tax rate, record the tax rate and other GST information in your sales ledger. Likewise, if the tax rates on the items you buy are the same, you should update your purchase ledger.

If you sell items with multiple tax rates, you can keep a single sales ledger and record all GST details at the stock item or stock group level. You can accomplish the same thing with a single purchase ledger. The HSN details, tax rate, and Type of supply selected in the sales and purchase ledgers will apply to all items or services specified in a transaction. The details configured in the sales or purchase ledger will override these stock item details in the transaction.

Select Exempt if used for the sale of the type of supply that is exempted from tax under GST, or select Nil Rated if used for the sale of goods or services that attract a 0% tax rate under GST.
