Including GST Tax Code – Version 2.6.39


The newly created or upgrade existing database will include this GST tax code which defined by our royal customs. Although the SQL script looks simple, I have spent some times to change the upgrade engine in order to work accordingly. Anyhow, users need not to know about this complexity. Just upgrade the database with once single click.

Based on the GST compliance guidelines, the tax code is required for GST auditing. It is reflecting the GST percentage which is either 6% or zero percent. Well, for future flexibility, users can add or change their own tax code percentage whenever necessary.

Accounting Split Entry – Version 2.6.37

Recently, GST seems to be one of the hot topics which I ever heard from many people discussion. Be it GST (Goods and Services Tax) or VAT (Value Added Tax), they are the same. With this implemented, everybody is paying fair tax amount to government revenues instead of generated solely from corporate and personal income tax.

As a Malaysian, I’m sharing the same feeling how GST will impact us as a daily consumer. We know this is coming to us next year and it is way beyond our control to delay the implementation. But what I can provide here is to make this little software compliance to our royal custom GST compliance guide.

Improve the accounting entry screen – Version 2.6.29

While conducting a fix in earlier accounting reports, I figure out that the existing accounting entry screen seems to be having visibility issue.

As you can see in the screenshot, the taskbar appear to block part of the button visibility. And the scroll bar in the right even making it difficult to move around. Without doubt, I immediately improve it. Compare the before and after screenshot.

Sometimes, i myself alone not realizing this until revisit the screen again. But user like you will make the software even better. Because your feedback or reports will push me to improve further and eventually benefit to others.

Optional Accounting Entries & Industry Template – Version 2.1.5

Every business startup always wants to get everything ready at the soonest possible. If starting database from the fresh, this requires quite some times before getting things to work.


Now if you do not have accounting background and still want to keep track the regular profit until the accountant came into mind. Strawberry can do that now. There is a switch which leaves uncheck by default without generating accounting entries. Until when there is a necessary to setup the accounting module, the application can help to regenerate all the accounting entries based on the transaction which entered previously.


To add the conveniences, I have provided the industry template where user can create the database and setup the data within a few minutes. Right now, I’m providing PC & TELECOMMUNICATION industry only.

In future, more to come.
