Configuring GST for India

Recommended pre-reading: Taxation in Primaseller


With the launch of the GST Tax regime, you need to configure a few things in Primaseller so that your invoicing and taxation is compliant with the law.

To configure your GST Taxes in Primaseller, you will need to do the following:

Step1: Configure HSN codes

HSN Codes are configured at a Category Level in Primaseller.

  1. Please navigate to Settings-> Categories
  2. Click on Upload Category and download the sample Excel file
  3. Add your exact Category Name for existing as well as new Categories and add their corresponding HSN Codes in the Excel file. Save the file locally in your computer.
  4. Browse file and upload it

These HSN Codes will start appearing in the GST Invoice templates

Organizing your categories

If you haven’t already done it, please organize your categories as per unique HSN Classification provided by the government.

If you already have categories but the products within that have different SKU codes, please create separate categories and move products accordingly.You can do this in bulk by downloading the product excel, changing the categories as desired and uploading it again.

Contact your CA (Chartered Accountant) to get accurate HSN Codes. Primaseller is not a certified accounting expert and we are not liable for incorrect or missing HSN codes used by you.

Step 2: Configure your GSTN Number

  1. In Settings-> Tax Configuration, in the Tax Identification Label  field, choose GSTN from the dropdown
  2. In the Tax Identifier field, enter your GSTN Number and Save
  3. Go to each Facility and edit to add your GSTN Number across all locations

This will start reflecting your GSTN Number on all invoices.

Step 3: Create  GST Tax Classes

Let’s say the GST tax rate for all your products (or a category of products) is X%. For each state in India that you operate in, create two tax classes.

  1.  Tax Class Name: GST_18
    • In this class you will enable three rates as follows
      • CGST 9%
      • SGST 9%
      • IGST 0%
  2.  Tax Class Name: IGST_18
    • In this class you will enable three rates as follows
      • CGST 0%
      • SGST 0%
      • IGST 18%

If all states you operate in have the same GST Rates, you need to create the above two Tax classes only once which can be reused across states

Tax Names

Please ensure you use CGST, SGST and IGST (All capitals only) as Tax names to ensure compliance with laws and invoice templates as well.

Step 4: Create Tax Rules

For each state that you operate in, please configure the following Tax rules for some or all Categories.

  1. From your State – To your State – Choose tax Class GST_X

  2. From your state – To Any State – Choose tax Class IGST_X
Handling Different Categories

If your catalog has products that belong to different GST tax slabs then we recommend that you:

  • Create Different Categories for each tax slab
  • Create rules for each category for the corresponding tax class.
  • Remember that you can always have a generic rule for all categories and create specific rules for only those categories which have a different slab

Step 5: Select your GST Invoice Template

Navigate to Settings-> Invoice Configuration

From the configuration for All Channels or your desired channel, click on Edit choose the any template that suits you best. Then, under the Data section, select “Show Split taxes” if not already selected and click on save. 

 

Please share your feedback to support@primaseller.com. We understand that it is a new regime and some things if missing in other templates will soon be addressed.
