How to Import Masters in Tally from another company

As new Financial year started and many Tally users prefers to create a new company and new books of accounts.

Though I prefer to keep up accounts in the same company as it saves a lot of hurdle in creating new sets of accounts plus, I can view the continuous accounting reports. After finalization of my accounts I prefer to split data for two-year.

However its again a matter of personal choice whether to start new year in the same company or create a new company. If you create a new company, problem is always that you have again to create all ledgers manually which is a boring and time-consuming job.

BUT Thanks to Tally’s R & D team as it provides us a wonderful tool that is import and export and you no more need to create new ledgers in your newly created company.

One of my client has recently asked my help on this matter how to Import ledgers of old company to new company. and here is the solution that I provided her which work fine.

I requesting for your kind response.
        Shiva Kumar

        1. Shivakumar,
          While exporting your ledger mater from the previous company, you should carefuly review the options available for exporting.
          It will ask you whether u want to treat previous year balance as opening ? you should set it to yes!
          You can do it again and check the result in a sample company.

          While selecting the ledgers, you should select all masters! it will export and import the item as well.
          Hope it will help you

          1. shiva Kumar

            Sorry Mahendra sir i haven’t get the question “treat previous year balance ” while exporting the master.xml but only all masters/group/…… i am using tally9 Multiuser serial no:74xxxxxxx but i had Ranged data only group or ledger have closing balance as Non zero. because we have lot of customer which have zero balance they are not needed for next year. Is there is way to exporting all non zero balance with closing balance as opening balance for new company
