You can use reference  as advance receipt, New, Against or on account if you have enabled bill wise entry in Supplier’s ledger master. It will help you to record transactions bill by bill

To view the Receipt Voucher screen:

In Tally F6  is  used to enter receipt voucher whether it is a cash receipt or a cheque receipt. No other type of voucher  will be booked through this option.

  • For example, if your company receives money from a customer for an earlier transaction say sales, then the same will be passed  through a Receipt Voucher:
  • Credit the customer account and debit the Cash account, if you receive cash or
  • Debit the Bank account where you need to deposit the money, if you receive Cheques.

Note: Similar to Payment and Contra vouchers, the Receipt voucher can be made using Single entry mode or Voucher mode.
