GST Changes


In the wake of GST, we are in the process of migrating from existing tax structure to GST completely. We take API compatibility very seriously and hence will be making changes in API, dashboard and downloadable reports step-by-step so that nothing breaks on your side. You can specify your GST numbers in your dashboard. Please go the Account Section to fill either the Provisional or the Final GSTIN. [block:callout] { "type": "danger", "body": "You can’t change the Final GSTIN once submitted.", "title": "GSTIN" } [/block] These are the changes you need to be aware of: 1. Starting from 00:00 1st July 2017, we have started charging GST on all payments instead of Service Taxes. 2. We are sending out the GST amount in the service_tax fields for any relevant payments.
