     You can view, verify, and correct any transactions before you export them to the relevant forms and annexures for filing your returns.

     Define different tax rates for Individuals/HUF and Other Collectee Types based on the availability of party’s PAN. If the PAN is not available, TCS will be charged at 5% or twice the tax rate of the commodity, whichever is higher.

     In transactions, the tax amount gets calculated automatically based on whether the party has a PAN or not.
