How to Manage Default Tax for Sales & Purchases

How to Manage Default Tax for Sales & Purchases


Default tax is listed in a few sections in Hike. Below is a brief explanation of how each of them works.

The default tax in tax rules

You can find a tax rule marked as default in Store setup > Tax rules. When you add a new outlet in Hike, the default tax rule will be set as the default tax for the outlet by default.


You can change it by ticking the checkbox highlighted as below.


The default tax for outlets

The default tax for an outlet can be selected from Store setup > Outlets and registers > Click on the name of the outlet > Default tax.



After selecting the default tax here, it will be applied by default when you create new products in that outlet. Default tax selected here will also be applied by default for the custom sales in the outlet. If you have different default taxes for different outlets and keep pricing different between outlets, the default tax of each outlet will be applied to the product when you create it.


The default tax for suppliers

The default tax selected for a supplier as highlighted below is used as the default tax for products added in the purchase order for that supplier.


You can still change the purchase tax in the purchase order. Select your tax rate from the drop-down list if you want to change the tax in it.
