Setup GST (Goods and Services Tax)
GST is an Indirect Tax, which has replaced many Indirect Taxes in India. This indirect tax made India on unified market. There are three taxes applicable under this system: CGST, SGST & IGST.
- CGST: Collected by the Central Government on an intra-state sale. (E.g. transaction happening within Gujarat)
- SGST: Collected by the State Government on an intra-state sale. (e.g. Transaction happening within Gujarat)
- IGST: Collected by the Central Government for inter-state sale. (e.g. Gujarat to Tamil Nadu)

At the front store as per the set logic if a sale is made in the same state as the seller location then CGST and SCST will be charged.

The system will check first for a specific product wise tax and if that is not configured then only the system will take the Global Tax Rate defined.
