The purpose of this article is to precisely define the terminologies used in our Knowledge Base. It will try to clarify ambiguous terms and definitions. For example, from Pegboard's perspective, the term client refers to the signed-up users of Jisti application; and these are for example the therapists and counsellors. But from the therapist’s perspective, the term client refers to his/her patients.
This article will also be a repository of all the abbreviations used in the Jisti Knowledge Base.

Goods and Services Tax (GST)
GST is a value added tax of 10% on most goods and services sales, with some exemptions (such as for certain food, healthcare and housing items) and concessions (including qualifying long term accommodation which is taxed at an effective rate of 5.5%). GST is levied on most transactions in the production process but is in many cases refunded to all parties in the chain of production other than the final consumer.
The Jisti signed-up users will be referred to as users. These are the Counsellors, Hypnotherapists, Conveyancers among others.
