Area/Step 1: Tax Code Maintenance
As the company is non-SST registered. We strongly advise them to create both N-SST(P) [Non-SST Registered (Purchase)], and N-SST(S) [Non-SST Registered (Supply)] as new default tax code in the event that SST system has been re-introduced at 1st September 2018 (see below picture).
Go to Maintenance --> General --> Tax --> Click on New icon to create non SST tax code.
Area/Step 2: Inventory Item Maintenance
In Inventory Item Maintenance, change/choose both default supply tax code and default purchase tax code to N-SST(S), and N-SST(P) respectively for all items.
Go to Maintenance --> Inventory Item
Area/Step 3: Account Mapping
Go to Control Panel --> Setting
1(a) Click on Company Profile icon, therefore un-check Enable GST/VAT and leave blank for SST Registration Details. Click on Save after the changes.
(b) A system restart message will prompt out after you made changes on enabling/disabling GST/VAT.
(c) GST Dashboard selection is now eliminated from GST Control Panel since GST system is un-applied.
