Suggestion to Improve Tally.ERP 9

Tally is  the famous  Indian ERP accounting software, and  is offering so many amazing advance features to its users on a constant basis which is very much appreciated. I have no idea about Tally’s inbuilt application platform however, from my profession of teaching and accounting, I can suggest some features which may increase user’s overall experience with Tally.erp 9 and the same is very beneficial to small and micro SMB who can not invest huge amount after SAP, Quick book or other customized Software. Further to above, no other ERP accounting software can beat job prosperity which is available only for Tally Accountants.

Enhanced Ratio Analysis in Tally

Ratio Analysis help managers to understand financial position quickly and help them in immediate decision-making and I really appreciate that Tally is providing Ratio Analysis however the facility is now limited only to few Ratio which cuts the usability of this great Managerial Tool.Let’s take example of  equity ratio or net worth ratio. It is different from debt/equity ratio which is already given in tally but equity ratio shows the relationship of shareholder’s fund and total asset. So, if it  has been available in Tally.erp 9, then it will be easy to analyze the solvency of  a company. Another example is of interest coverage ratio. Again Tally.erp 9 offers  interest calculation facility but it lacks an automated interest coverage ratio. If it will be in tally, it will be more helpful to compare net profit and fixed interest charges and to analyze loan and debt.

If you need to learn more about Ratio Analysis, then just drop me a line, or you can read in more details about various Ratios on my blog.

Fixed Asset Register

Maintenance of Fixed Assets Register is a statutory and compulsory need under the Companies Act, 1956 (now, Companies Act, 2008) and there is large number of private and public limited companies are using Tally.erp 9 as their sole Accounting software as well as to manage statutory compliance.However as on writing of this article e.g. 1st December, 2010, maintenance of Fixed Assets Register is not available in Tally.erp 9 which is a big cons for private/public companies which are using Tally.erp 9. Apart from the statutory need, Fixed Assets register is also helpful for other small and medium SMB to  track of asset in a systematic manner.So,  that the user can easily capture important details like  an asset purchased, depreciation, sale and remaining part of asset etc.

Missing Elements to be a  Complete ERP System.

Tally has now converted Tall.ERP 9. It means it has all facilities for integration of businesses . But when we watch other Enterprise resource processing software  like Quickbook, Economic Accounting Software, we may feel that many important things  is still missing in Tally.erp 9 to make it user’s darling software. for instance, electronic fund transfer (EFT) and decision support system (DSS), credit /debit card payment mechanism, HR management etc.

Don’t forget to share your views on the above subject. If you feel something also is missing in Tally.erp, then just share it here.

    Concept of commiission agent or incentve based sales ,auto consumption of components for more than one manufacturing item is missing

    1. Hi Vikas,
      Yeah Agreed with you but I believe that by launching of Series B and C, there will be everything in Tally!
      Series B will be available during 1 or 2nd Quarter of 2011. Development at Tally is happening very very fast.

  10. Mayur Verma

    hi all there is a problem with tally what I observe is that when I enter a voucher, an account or along with inventory entered twice or thrice amongst many accounts tally is not able to show all the references together like I debit ramesh’s a/c with some inventory then ajay’s a/c with another inventory and again debit ramesh’s a/c and pass the voucher tally would not able to show both references of ramesh’s a/c with inventory while give sum of both entries (as 40+40=80) a/c debited with 80 but showing only first reference not second and third or others of ramesh.

    1. In ledger voucher summary it will show only first ledger name. It doesn’t affect your accounts. Press F1 and you will get full details

  11. Prasad K

    Dear sir,
    please solve these issues.

    1. while creating sale invoice (in both accounting invoice & item invoice) non current liability items are not able to be selected. (for the purpose of adjustment mobilisation advances).
    2. now tally is not allowing to account purchase of assets in purchase voucher? (in both accounting invoice & item invoice)

  12. Need to incorporate these changes in Tally 9 :
    1) Instead of ‘Consignee’ in Tax Invoice, there must be “Shipped To” words as per E-Way Bill Compliance, so that there will not be any confusion.
    2) These ‘Shipped To’ words should be below Buyer Details. Currently, the Buyer Details are below Consignee Details.

  13. Biju

    I have a suggestion to tally that if we issue a PDC then it will be in a future date only and no posting date option available. So if we try to post a PDC it must show both posting date and value date. otherwise how to get issuing date.I believe Issue date is very important to identify when the cheque was issued.


    Just wanted to share an experience with you which created a lot of trouble in my as well as every CA or accountant’s life after rolling out of GST, So when I use to reconcile the ITC as per GSTR-2A & ITC claimed as per books it is a bit difficult to reconcile manually please add a Purchase memorandum register in tally in which you should enter the date of receiving of bill so as to take credit in that particular month & date to which the bill pertains so that it can be easily identified to trace any additional entries from memorandum, easy to take credit instead of manual checking & bill should be easily reflected in the month it belongs to.

  15. Satishchandra Joshi

    Instead of “Consignee” ‘Ship to ” should be incorporated as per requirements of GST and Instead of “Buyer” “Bill to” should be incorporated in Tally ERP 9. Also Bill to address should be in upper side and Ship to address should be on lower side. At present they are upside down. Please consider these changes in your upcoming upgrade, so that the buyers will get satisfied in view of GST requirements.
