Now you need to record some details about the code you have added.

If you’re creating an Extended code, the GST type is inherited from the Category i.e. Fertiliser is 15% claimable while Wages are exempt of GST.
If you’re creating a Category code, the GST type reflects the Section it sits under.
There are five Types to choose from:
items such as rebates and other farm income.
Farm working, capital and personal expenses.
Livestock sales and purchases including grazing.
This season’s milk production.
