Enhancement in Tax Master

Several changes has been done in tax master to provide you a variety of calculation method and other enhancement.


Tax Type: Tax Type has been added in the tax master to categorized the tax for better reporting. The type = others is intended to be used as non-taxable terms.


Service Tax




Calculation Method:  We have added more predefined calculation method for tax calculation.


On Product Value:  It is the default calculation method. In this case, the tax amount is calculated on value i.e. (Quantity * Rate) – Item Discount + Item Charges


On Current Subtotal: The tax is calculated on immediate current subtotal.For example, if a tax X is changed on the total of product value + tax Y. In this case set calculation method for tax X as “current subtotal”


Quantity * Rate: In this case, the tax amount is calculated on value i.e. Quantity * Rate.


On MRP Value (Sale Only): This method is applicable only in sales modules. The calculation is done on MRP value i.e.  Quantity * MRP.


On Taxable Value (Sale Only): We have added a field in the product master > other information > Taxable Value.

Tax amount is calculated on the Taxable Value * Qty

Example:  The WBST tax on alcoholic beverages is calculated on the difference of MRP and Cost. In this case you can enter the difference in taxable value in product master and use this calculation method.


As Surcharge: The tax is calculated on the tax value of preceding row of tax ledger.

For example, if we select “Service Tax @10%“ and after that select “Education Cess @3 %in” in the next row. In this case the “Education Cess @3%” is calculated on “Service Tax @10%“ amount only.


As Flat Rate: In this case, the tax amount is applied as the rate defined in the tax master. In other words the tax rate is considered as fixed amount to be charged as tax..


Tax On Amount%: It is used if a tax is required to be calculated on certain percentage of the taxable value of a product. For example, in a restaurant, service tax is calculated on the 40% of the product value. Note: If this field is 0 then tax is calculated as 100% of taxable value.

Display order: The tax is printed on the invoice as per the order defined here.

Note: You should not change the tax master after a transaction is made using it. If the tax master is changed then during transaction modification recalculation of tax may arise in discrepancy. To rectify those discrepancies you must run Update Tax function.

QR Code Based Discount Control System.

Let us assume that a QR code is generated by a mobile application from third party. The customer need to show this QR code to the POS operator in order to receive discount.


This QR code is a combination of Unique ID + date in DDMMYY format. If you scan this QR code the output will be 12345011214 where last 6 digit is data and first 5 digit is unique id.

For example, let us assume that card id for a customer is 22446677 and today is 03-Feb-2015 the QR Code needs to be generated that returns 22446677030215.


To implement this, you need to set Customer Card Number Input Format in Global Option. Map your own customer input barcode or QR code format by using the following details.


C  = Customer Card Number = 20 Digit

D  = Current date in DDMMYY format = 6 digit.

Input CCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCDDDDDD in the ‘Customer Card Number Input Format’ in Global Option.

If the format is not defined then the scanning will be normal without any decoding.

After truncating the last 6 digit the remaining will be searched against the card number. If a match is found the customer is selected and the discount is applied.

Implementation Notes:

In global option define the customer card number input format.

Make sure to set “Open Customer List = no” in designation master for users.

Please note that this works in STT as well as STS.
