Use the Tax components form to define the components for excise duty and set up the excise claim percentage. You can use the excise credit earned in a purchase transaction to offset the excise liability that is incurred from the sale of goods.

The amount of credit that can be offset is different for capital purchases and for noncapital purchases. For capital purchases, the declared percentage of the credit earned is deferred to the next financial year and you can use the remaining amount in the current financial year. For noncapital goods, the whole amount of excise credit earned is available to offset the excise liability in the current financial year.

You must also define tax setoff, which will offset the amounts of the various components of the excise duty in the excise payable account with the amounts in the recoverable accounts of the tax components, regardless of the tax type.
