Enter sales voucher under gst & printing invoice format in tally erp 9

GST is the latest tax reformation in India. GST  has subsumed many existing Indirect taxes.In this chapter we will discuss about how to enter a sale entry with gst in tally erp 9. GST sales voucher creation is almost similar to VAT entry in tally. Before we go let’s have some basics of GST.

GST basics for Accountants

GST is an indirect tax levied on goods and services. earlier we had to charge VAT on goods and service tax on services.Now after GST implementation a single tax has come into existence which charges on every addition of value during the process of sale.That is from manufacturer to the end retailer charges GST on the value or profit or margin he adds.The below table will explain how GST work on value addition.

GST supply chain value addition

In every stage of the supply chain, you see the seller adds his margin on the base value.for example

Distributor Added Rs 100 on base value and sold for 1298 Including 18% GST. Here effectively;The Distributor need to pay GST on Rs 100.That is Rs 18. How ?

When Distributor buying goods from manufacturer he paid Rs 180 as tax. The distributor can deduct this amount when he is paying tax.

Distributor collected GST                            =  198

Less GST on purchase from manufacturer =  180

Net Tax to be paid to department                =    18

Effectively the Distributor added Rs 100 as margin, this the value addition and he paid tax on 18% of 100 = 18

GST Tax structure

Basically there are two types of sale in GST. Local sale and Interstate sale. Local sale is the sale within a state. Where as interstate sale is the sale happening  between two states.

A Registered seller or  dealer selling products or service within his state,He has to charge State GST & Central GST. We cal it in short as SGST & CGST.

A registered seller or dealer selling products or services to dealer registered in another state attract Integrated GST or IGST.

In short Local sale attract SGST & CGST where as interstate sale attract IGST.
