Going further, in this blog, we will see in brief the working of TDS in Sage ERP X3 system. After integrating the TDS PATCH in Sage ERP X3, TDS module will be seen on the left list of Sage ERP X3 main screen. Please refer the below screen shot.
It is important for the users to know how to configure any add-ons before they actually start making the transactions. So In this blog we will go through the configuration of Sage X3 TDS module.
To begin with the understanding of Fiscal year, it is used to define the financial year and assessment year in system. Financial year is the year in which you have earned the income, and Assessment year is the year in which you actually file the returns.
In India, Financial year starts from 1st April and ends on 31st March (wherein there is income pertaining to the whole year or part of the year). Assessment year is the year immediately following the financial year where in the income of the F.Y. is assessed.
To access TDS in Sage ERP X3, login into the Sage ERP X3 and go in to the Tax Deducted at source module,
Now click on TDS SetupàFiscal calendar option to set the fiscal year for TDS module. Only 1 Fiscal Year Name is allowed i.e. there will always be a single record of a Particular Year.
Fiscal calendar allows the user to enter ‘From Date’ and would calculate the rest of the dates based on the ‘From Date’.
The ‘Responsible person’ in the system is the person who is responsible for deducting the tax from the service providers. Hence, his / her name and designation needs to be in the Return reports. “Responsible person” information can be maintained by clicking on TDS >> TDS Setup >> Responsible person.
Here user can create as many Responsible people as per their need. But it is mandatory to define at least one Responsible person for a company on which TDS is deducted. Responsible persons are created here but need to be defined for that company in Branch details in Option screen.
This will be use to define the Branch details in Sage ERP X3. This screen let the users to link one branch with Bank, state code, and Responsible person for that defined branch. Also lets users to link particular branch with GL accounts like Tax, Interest, Other and penalty accounts.
Branch has an option of Responsible Person selection, which in turn will be populated against the company whenever the particular branch is selected.
