You will only have to provide a supplier name to add a supplier in LEDGERS. All other fields are optional. In case all other fields are left blank, the place of supply for the customer would be taken as the location of the business of the supplier.

If a supplier is not registered for GST, you can leave the B2B or Supplier Registered under GST? as No, Unregistered. Then, the supplier would show under unregistered suppliers in your supplier management page.

In case, you select Yes, GSTIN of the supplier would have to be provided under Supplier GSTIN in a valid format or left blank. If you enter a GSTIN, then the GSTIN will be checked against the GSTN Network and the Business Name as per GSTN will be auto-filled.

If you do not know the GSTIN of the supplier, you can leave the GSTIN blank and the supplier would receive an email for updating GSTIN on your LEDGERS. The supplier using the link can directly update billing details and the information will be ready for your verification under On Boarding. If you accept the information provided the supplier, the supplier master would be updated.

Once the information and address tab is updated with the necessary information, you can update the tax tab. In the tax tab various information about the supplier like PAN, TAN, TDS applicability, currency, preferred payment method along with bank account details and terms of payment can be updated easily. Also, you will be able to update if a reverse charge is to be applied on default for this supplier.
