Updating Sales and Purchase Ledgers for GST Compliance

If many items you sell have the same tax rate, specify the tax rate and other GST details in your sales ledger. Similarly, if the items you purchase have the same tax rates, update your purchase ledger.

If you sell items with multiple tax rates, you can still maintain a single sales ledger, and record all GST details at the stock item or stock item or stock group level. You can create a single purchase ledger similarly.
