You can record transactions necessary for your business by creating and maintaining masters, vouchers, and generating reports.  Tally.ERP 9 enables you to perform and manage all of the major accounting operations in your business, such as:


Maintain accounts only: This option is useful when you are a service provider and no inventory is involved in it.

Integrate accounts and inventory: Stock records often contain compensating errors caused by wrong allocation to items. This feature enables finalization of financial books without waiting for the reconciliation of stocks.

Use Income and Expenses A/c instead of Profit and Loss A/c: Income and expenses statements are generally used for non-trading accounts and profit and loss a/c are used for trading accounts.

Enable multi-currency: This option supports working with multiple currencies.

Maintain bill-wise details: The reference number can then be used to allocate payments to the correct invoice to maintain an accurate account of outstanding.Bill wise details for non-trading accounts is useful when one needs to track either an installment to be paid or a loan amount to be received over a certain period of time.

Activate interest calculation: Interest calculation is useful to calculate the interest on loans taken, loans given, late payment by customers and late paid to suppliers.

Maintain Payroll: Payroll in Tally gives full integration with accounts for simplified payroll processing and accounting and it also support for user-defined Earnings and Deductions Pay Heads.

Maintain Cost Centres: A cost centre is any unit of an organisation to which transactions (generally, revenue) can be allocated.

You can now obtain a Profit and Loss account of each such Profit Centre.
