SST Options

This is the area where you can set your SST configuration.

Description                                    Explanation
SST Start Date This is to set your SST start date, the day or month where you start to charge your customer SST.
SST Taxable Period (months) SST  submission  period.  This  is  to  set  in  system  what  is  your

submission period for SST-02 form. Default will be 2 months. For companies where their fiscal year end at odd months (1,3,5,7,9,11) and if you are required to submit only 1 month at 1st taxable period, you may set to this to 1 month, then after that change back to 2 months for normal 2 months submission.

Use Default SST Code To use default SST Code or not
Default SST Code Default SST Code, this is where you can set generally which tax code

to be capture into your transactions (Output Tax)

Table 3 shows the list of configuration settings available at SST Option.


Implementation Note: To make things easy to understand, it is recommended to untick “Use Default

SST Code” so that you can apply the original logic flow of the tax code.


New Option “Add to Cost”

To help those customer that are not SST registered but have suppliers or vendors that charge them SST, they can use our purchase tax codes when keying in their purchases. The user then no need to recalculate their costing per quantity of item when keying in their purchases. There will be no worries on the costing issue as we had added an option to calculate these purchase tax figure into your item costing. You can find this option by editing any of the purchase tax code.


Figure 8 shows the “Add to Cost” checkbox option when editing a tax code.


Exemption Features

In SST, there are chances that some of your customer are exempted from SST. Therefore, we had added some exemption features into our Debtor and Creditor. User can add different items with different tax exemption number for debtors and creditors.


Figure 9 shows the tax exemption from Debtor


Figure 10 shows the billing entry where system able to capture the exemption related info automatically.


Implementation Note: To help smoothen this maintenance process, we had added a new function to support import from Excel for tax exemption. You can find this in AutoCount Accounting Management Studio.


Figure 11 shows the interface for Import Tax Exemption.


Change of Tax Code Logic

In this version, there are some changes in the logic of our tax code flow.






3.Default tax code




Sales exemption under

Debtor/Creditor (NEW)



4.Default tax code


Referring to the table above, there is a new logic added which is “Sales Exemption under Debtor / Creditor”. The system will detect if there is any maintenance set in the tax exemption for debtor / creditor, if there is then it will capture from the tax exemption table, else everything will be the same as before.

*To get this tax code logic, you will need to untick the “Use Default SST Code” at SST Option.



Sales                                                 Purchase
Default Tax Code S-10 SST-0
Item: 00001 SV-6 PS-6
Debtor/Creditor : ABC SDN BHD EEM P-5
Sale exemption

Debtor/Creditor : ABC SDN BHD Item: 00001


Table 4 shows an example of how the tax code is being set in AutoCount Accounting.


Debtor/Creditor                Item                                    Sales                                    Purchase
  Other items EEM P-5

  Other items S-10 SST-0

Table 5 shows the result of how AutoCount Accounting capture the tax codes when performing transactions.


Tariff Code Features

In conjunction with the implementation of SST, there is a new maintenance added into AutoCount Accounting – Tariff Maintenance. This maintenance allows user to maintain every single tariff code that they use in their company. You can find this under Tax  Tariff Maintenance. The tariffs created will then be used to apply in Item Code Maintenance. This will be useful to generate the listing on SST-

02 form part B1: Sales / Service details.


Implementation Note: You can update all these items through import from excel – Stock Item.


Figure 11 shows the interface of Tariff Maintenance.
