    Dear Sir,

    What should be done in Tally.ERP 9 to close accounts of last financial year and then bring forward balances when opening accounts for the new financial year.

    If you are unable to give a direct answer, could you give me a clue to it?



    Mahendra Rana - 6 years ago Reply

    In tally.erp 9 to bring fwd the balance of previous year to the new year just start making entries in the new year in the same company. For this purpose, from the Gateway of tally.erp 9, select new accounting period e.g. 1.4.2010 to 31.3.2011 and start doing entries and its all done.

    Further to close the accounts of previous year. and to separate the two financial year within the same company e.g. after creating new financial year, you are required to split data.

    Your query is not clear and you need to post it again with more details.If you can’t describe your problem properly than you can’t expect any solutions.

    Further, you must mention your Tally Serial number while posting your query. Else the query will not be attended.

    sir how to create Ledger under sub heading. I mean wen we refer the trial balance, tally should show – for Eg. under Direct Expense – Employee cost as sub-heading – wages as ladger.

    Mahendra Rana - 5 years ago Reply

    Use Category! but it is not meant to trial balance. For Trial balance purpose you can create sub groups under subgroup-main group

    In Tally up to How Many Ledgers we can create?

    Avinash Dubey - 9 months ago Reply

    Dear Sir, I wish to add an existing party i.e. the existing ledger under Loans group, into sundry debtors group also since I am billing some items to him. The momemt I am trying to add him it does not accept and says duplicate entry. However during sales voucher creation the party doesn’t show up since it is under a different group. What is the solution.

    Mahendra Rana - 9 months ago Reply

    Hello Avinash,

    It is advisable to create a new ledger with some suffix say party -A-Sales and in the mailing details just write only the name of the party
    Why two separate ledger? There is a logic in not allowing sales/purchase transactions to loans grouping accounts as because of the IT rules, we need to show them the ledgers of all loan details. If we mix loans and sales/purchase it will create unnecessary doubts and will lead to further enquiry.
