One of reader Akash requested me to explain the how to deal with manufacturing entries  in tally.erp 9.Many other reader esp. newbie also facing how to deal with inventory entries in tally.erp 9

Tally.erp 9 provides  a seamless and easy to manage inventory entries. but first one should understand how to manufacturing process works.

In a manufacturing company some items consumed that is called input and the item which is produced is called as output or a product which you have to sell.

So, we can conclude that suppose you are purchasing two items as raw material one is steel and second is paint so both these are will be known as input item or raw materials that is consumed in manufacturing process.

Now it will give you a new product that is painted steel. It is called the output product which you can sell in the market in other words it is a finished good.

So, the question is how to deal with the same. because Raw materials you have to purchase and hence in your incoming/stock quantity it will be recorded whenever you make a purchase voucher.

Also the painted steel (finished Goods) will be recorded in tally as outward materials whenever you account a sales vouchers.

So, how you will tally it ? that is you have to pass production entries in your tally.erp 9 whereby you have to show the raw materials as consumed and then to produce a new item that is painted steel.

You must enable inventory features in your tally.erp 9 to record these transactions.

Go to main menu of tally then select Inventory vouchers

I am sure it will help to Mr. Akash and many other readers who are seeking how to record inventory transactions.

    How we can enter damage items in tally 9.3
    Currenly i am entering as journal ( Accouing voucher ) and DEBIT DAMAGES EXPENSE ACCOUNT AND CREDIT STOCK ACCOUNT.



    1. Sameera,
      I am not sure if the treatment you are using for damage stock is correct.
      If I have to manage these transactions, then I will simply pass the inventory of damaged goods in consumption.
      the valuation of the stock will be reduced automatically.

      1. Sir, can you explain me briefly about the damage entry?

        1. Sanjay,
          You need to learn basic of accountancy. once you learn it, you will be able to post such entry.

  50. How to profit inventory stock tally erp 9 and ya manual profit and loss

  51. K Vijaya Gopal says:


    a) In a Cement manufacturing company, Raw Materials like Limestone, Laterite and Gypsum are consumed that is called input and Cement is produced is called as output or a product which you have to sell.

    b) In the same manufacturing company maintenance activity consumes some general stores like Iron and Steel, Electrodes, Bearings etc. The company has various process sections like Quarry, Mills, Kiln and Packing Plant

    In part “a” above, we can purchase raw materials and the same is consumed in the manufacturing process as input and cement are produced as output. This transaction can be recorded in tally using stock journal /manufacturing journal / BOM method. This part is very clear and it is being discussed between various users of the tally.

    Now, the problem is with part “b” above, where the general stores are consumed internally (with no output and common to each of the sections/departments) between various departments viz. Electrical/Mechanical/Production and sections viz. Mills, Kiln and Packing Plant.

    Your kind suggestion is requested:

    1. Whether stock journal can be used to record the transaction

    2. How the cost centre/department is captured?


    Any other method to record the transaction as mentioned in part “b”

    Raw materials and General Stores have to purchased and it is incoming/stock quantity where it will be recorded through purchase voucher.

  52. I see you don’t monetize, don’t waste your traffic, you can earn additional bucks every month with new monetization method.
