    2. Restaurant including coffee shop.
    3. Mini market, grocery and sundry shop
    4. Book store. 
    5. Pharmacy.
    6. Places of entertainment.
  • Must use a GST compliant point of sale (POS) system or a GST compliant cash register to issue tax invoices.


For registered person excluding Retailer
