How to charge Freight, Transportation, Packing or any other Expenses in GST Invoice?

Recently we have so much query about how to show freight, transportation, packing or any other expenses in GST invoice with Tax Liability.

For Example: Ramesh sold goods of Rs. 50000 to Suresh and charge freight charge seperatly in invoice @ 1.5% of total sale value then CGST and SGST @ 9% each. Then entry will be like below:

Dr. Suresh
Rs. 59750
Cr. Taxable Sales
            Rs. 50000
Cr. Freight
            Rs. 750
Cr. CGST @ 9%
            Rs. 4500
Cr. SGST @ 9%
            Rs. 4500

Now we see how to calculate Freight automatically on value or on quantity. 

For Create Freight Ledger - Go to Gateway of Tally - Accounting Info - Ledger - Create. Select yes to GST Applicable and define the applicability of Tax for which Freight will be charged. 

Press enter to save the ledger creation.

Create a Sales Accounting voucher.

For manage tax impact in your Sales voucher you must enable yes to option "Allow modification of Tax Details for GST" in configuration (Press F12 in sales accounting voucher)

Remember this option is very important to bifurcate your sales according to GSTR - 1 because this option show you tax classification in your voucher, select appropriate classification. You can define your sales / purchase/ expenses/ income through this option which is taxable/ exempt/ consumer/ unregistered etc. 

When you press Enter on Freight, tax classification appear on your screen, if you want to charge GST on freight then select taxable or if you do not want to charge GST on freight then select exempt (remember if you select unregistered then Reverse charge liability will be charge on you).
