We see a large number of Indian users preferring POS, so writing this guide to help them use the application in a better way.

Tax settings:
============
3 Different taxes in India:

  • CGST (Central Goods & Services Tax)
  • SGST (State Goods & Services Tax )
  • IGST (Integrated Goods & Services Tax)

Go to Settings -> Tax Rate setting.

1. Create a tax with name CGST@10% and Tax Rate %: as 10. (10% is for example only, use the tax rate applicable)

2. Create a tax with name SGST@10% and Tax Rate %: as 10. (10% is for example only, use the tax rate applicable)

3. Create a tax with name IGST@14% and Tax Rate %: as 14. (14% is for example only, use the tax rate applicable)

4. Below Tax rate, it shows “Tax groups ( Combination of multiple taxes )”. Create on Add, enter the tax group name as Intra-State-CGST-SGST and select sub-taxes CGST@10% & SGST@10%.

5. Below Tax rate, it shows “Tax groups ( Combination of multiple taxes )”. Create on Add, enter the tax group name as Inter-State-IGST and select sub-taxes IGST@14%.
