Inventory entries in tally.erp 9

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

inventory vouchers

consumption entry

manufacturing voucher in tally.erp 9

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.



Mahendra Rana - 6 years ago Reply

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.

thanks for your support though this site , i am a books dealer , i try to use tally for my shop for inventory but i found it is not compact able for this trade .
reason for this is every year the book editions keep changing , but in tally it will not allow duplicate entry similar tittle , and alteration of part no (isbn),author when new edition is printed .

in this field a single author ill write a multiple books and there are same tittle with multiple authors with same title in different authors

i am sorry to say that i installed a pirated tally to check if i can manage the inventory in tally but failed ,if it could have success i would buy a original tally , may be i am wrong in tally configuration or no body to guide me

hope you may help me to solve and use tally and promote to buy a original tally after

once again thank you
