Item Wise Taxation
Taxes selected in the Tax and Other Charges in transactions are applied on all the items. If you need different taxes applied on items selected in the same transaction, you should setup you item and tax master as explained in the steps below.
Step 1: Mention Tax Applicable in the Item master
Item master has tax table where you can list taxes which will be applied on it.
Tax rate mentioned in the item master gets preference over tax rate entered in the transactions.
For example, if you provide tax rate for VAT as 10% for item ABC, where for same VAT ledger 12% rate is entered in the Sales Order/Invoice, for item ABC, tax rate applied would be 10%, as mentioned in the item master.
Step 2: Setup Taxes and Other Charges
In Taxes and Other Charges master, you should select all the applicable taxes which could be applicable on item.
For example, if few items has VAT 5 applied on them, other has Service Tax applied, and some other has Excise Duty applicable, then you tax master should have all these taxes selected.
Step 3: Set Tax Rate as Zero in Taxes and Charges Template
In the Taxes and Other Charges master, tax rate will be updated as ZERO. It means, tax rate applicable on items will be pulled from the respective Item master. While for other items, 0% tax will be applied, means no other taxes will be applied on that item.
Based on the above setting, you will have taxes applied on items as mentioned in the respective item master. Check following for an instance.
