Profit is a financial gain, especially the difference between the amount earned and the amount spent in buying, operating, or producing something

Tax is a compulsory contribution to state revenue, levied by the government on workers' income and business profits, or added to the cost of some goods, services, and transactions.

This article will explain the difference in profit calculated with include and exclude taxes.

I. Configure Profit Tax Calculation

Step 1. Go to Setup, Click More Menu, then Choose Module

Step 2. Go to Report Tab, then Enable Profit Tax Calculation

You can select Include or Exclude Tax.



Include Tax

Include tax means that the profit from the total sales + tax transaction will be reduced by the cost

Exclude Tax

Exclude Tax means that profit comes from Sales at less cost, sales + tax will not be calculated

II. Examples - Include Tax

Sales + Tax (500,000) - Cost (300,000) = Profit (200,000)

III. Examples - Exclude Tax

Sales + Tax (500,000) - Cost (300,000) = Profit (154,545)
