India Localization SuiteTax Engine Limitations and Best
Practices
Before using the India Localization SuiteTax Engine SuiteApp, be aware of the current limitations and best
practice recommendations.

       Important: To know more information about the current limitations of using the SuiteTax
       feature, see the help topic Known Limitations of SuiteTax.

Tax Deduction at Source (TDS) Limitations
■ The Tax Deduction at Source feature does not support overriding of tax details on vendor bills.
  Checking the Tax Details Override box and editing tax information under the Tax Details subtab of a
  vendor bill transaction will result in an error.
■ Section codes 194 LBB and 194 LBC are not supported.
■ TDS calculation does not support bill credit and vendor prepayment.

Goods and Services Tax (GST) Limitations
■ Kerala flood cess or state specific cess is not supported.
■ GST on vendor prepayment or customer advance receipt is not supported. You can use a journal entry
  to increase or decrease the tax liability due to these transactions.
■ GST on transfer order is not supported. If you use locations to manage the branches where shipping
  and receiving branch have different GSTIN, it will not calculate GST. If you use subsidiaries to manage
  the branches, it will be treated as a sales and purchase transaction and only then will it calculate tax.
■ The India Localization SuiteTax Engine SuiteApp only supports GSTIN by nexus (state level) in the
  subsidiary. A subsidiary that has multiple locations and GSTINs in the same nexus is not supported.
■ GST tax during item fulfillment is not supported.
■ The SuiteApp does not support tax exemption for Subsidiaries under SEZ (Special Economic Zone).

Best Practices when using the India Localization SuiteTax Engine
We recommend the following when using the India Localization SuiteTax Engine SuiteApp:

■ If you allow transactions outside of posting periods, enable this preference by going to Setup >
  Accounting > Accounting Preferences > General, then check the Allow Transaction Date Outside of
  Posting Period box.
■ To ensure proper tax calculation for your shipping or handling rates, enable the Charge for Shipping
  or Charge Handling Separate From Shipping preference.
■ If you have vendor bills with multiple tax rate rules with different tax rates in a financial year, then it is
  not recommended to delete them.
■ If vendor bills are already created for a vendor, then it is not recommended to edit PAN Availability
  and Vendor Type field values.

Tax Deduction at Source (TDS)
The India Localization Tax Engine SuiteApp enables you to calculate Tax Deduction at Source (TDS) on
vendor bill transactions. Under the Indian Income Tax Act of 1961, this concept was introduced to collect
tax from the very source of income. Tax is then deducted when the invoice or actual payment is issued,
whichever happens first.

India Localization SuiteTax
India Localization SuiteTax Engine        8

According to this concept, a person (deductor) who is liable to make payment of specified nature to any
other person (deductee) shall deduct tax at source and remit the same into the account of the Central
Government. The deductee from whose income tax has been deducted at source would be entitled to get
credit of the amount deducted based on Form 26AS or TDS certificate issued by the deductor.

To understand how to use the India Localization Tax Engine SuiteApp to track Tax Deduction at Source
calculation, read the following topics:

■ Setting Up Tax Deduction at Source

Applying Tax Deduction at Source on Vendor Bills
The India Localization SuiteTax Engine automatically calculates the Tax Deduction at Source (TDS) tax
amount on vendor bills after the bill is approved. The tax amount calculated for each line item is based on
the default section codes assigned to each line item record and the TDS tax rules you created.

To apply TDS tax on creation of a vendor bill:
  1. Go to Vendor Dashboard > Transactions > Enter Bills.
  2. Select the vendor for the bill.
  3. Enter the expenses or items for this bill.
  4. After entering line items, review the information in the India Tax Section Code field and change if

  6. Enter other details required for this transaction.
  7. Click Preview Tax or Save. When you click Preview Tax or save the transaction, NetSuite
     determines the appropriate nexus for the transaction and calls the tax engine associated with the
     nexus to calculate the taxes. The tax details are then sent back to NetSuite by the tax engine and
     shown on the Tax Details subtab of the transaction record.

TIjournal
TIjournal is a journal record for TDS that the SuiteApp automatically creates for the following reasons:

■ When the accumulated bill value exceeds vendor exemption, year level, and document level
  thresholds.
■ When you create a reversal transaction in a vendor bill with TDS.

When the accumulated value on a particular vendor bill exceeds the thresholds, the SuiteApp begins
calculating TDS with retrospective or non-retrospective effect based on TDS tax rate rules. If you delete

India Localization SuiteTax
India Localization SuiteTax Engine      15

a vendor bill or edit the value, vendor name, or section code, then the tax liability also changes. The
SuiteApp records this change in tax liability through TIjournals. TIjournal contains the bill ID for which it is
created.

The SuiteApp creates a TIjournal record transaction wise or section code wise.

      Note: The Tax Deduction at Source feature does not support overriding of tax details on vendor
      bill. On a vendor bill transaction, you will receive an error if you check the Tax Details Override
      box and perform any change to the tax information under the Tax Details subtab.

India Accumulated Tax Buckets
India Accumulated Tax Buckets is a custom record to store each bucket’s tax data. A bucket is a
combination of TAN, section code, vendor, and fiscal year of the transaction.

The SuiteApp accumulates each bucket’s net amount and tax amount and store them in the India
Accumulated Tax Bucket custom record. When the user creates, edits, or deletes a vendor bill, the
accumulated net amount of the buckets in which the transaction falls also changes. Based on the new
accumulated net amount, the SuiteApp calculates the new accumulated tax amount.

The SuiteApp lists all changes in tax calculation in the India Audit Trial subtab on the India Accumulated
Tax Buckets page.

India Goods and Services Tax (GST)

India Goods and Services Tax Overview
The India Localization Tax Engine SuiteApp enables you to calculate India Goods and Services Tax (GST)
on transactions. GST is an indirect tax imposed in India on the supply of goods and services, right from
the manufacturer to the consumer. It is a consumption-based and destination-based tax; therefore taxes
are paid to the state where the goods and services are consumed and not the state in which they were
produced.

Transactions made within single state (intrastate) are imposed with Central (CGST) by the Central
Government and State GST (SGST) by the State Government.

Transaction with imported goods or services made in between states (interstate) are imposed with
Integrated GST (IGST) by the Central Government.

GST Tax Components

■ CGST (Central GST) – This is the tax to be collected by the Central Government on an intrastate sale.
■ SGST (State GST) / UTGST (Union Territory GST) – This is the tax to be collected by the State/Union
  Territory Government on an intrastate sale.
■ IGST – This is the tax to be collected by the Central Government on an interstate sale and import.
■ GST Cess – This is the tax to be collected by the Central Government on interstate, intrastate, export,
  and import transactions.

GST Tax Rate Structure

The tax structure of GST have the following rates:

■ Nil Rated (0%) – This is a nil tax rate applied on essential goods and services. This means it will not
  have any effect on the amount of the item or service.
■ Exempted – This applies to supplies exempted from tax liability. Supplies are taxable but they do not
  have GST and Input Tax Credit (ITC) cannot be claimed.
■ Lower Rate (5%) – This rate is mostly applied on goods and services included in the Consumer Price
  Index (CPI) market basket and items for mass consumption.
■ Standard Rate (12% and 18%) – This rate is mostly applied on goods and services that includes
  capital goods, industrial intermediaries, iron and steel, financial, and telecommunication services.
■ Higher Rate (28%) – This rate is applied on luxury goods and services.
