    such as :
    groop = fixed assets
    ledgers: 1) machinery
    2) furniture
    3) building etc.

  2. Dear , I will publish full detail of each group's ledger in next articles. So be patient.
    Thanks for giving comments

  3. haii......
    thes tips are feally good.
    can u tell me where will the bills payable appear under???
    liability or creditor side???

  4. Dear Vinod,

    I am comfortable following your posts.

    Please tell me if I could have multiple ledger accounts with same name? For example, can I cater to a scenario where a company ABC is both a creditor and a debtor?

    This could be a rank stupid question but kindly bear with me.



  5. Yes !

    ABC company may both debtor and creditor of any other company . For this you create both creditor and debtor account of other company.

    In final time of money receipt or payment

    you can adjust with following entry .


    We purchase 10000 from ram

    and we sell to ram also another product of RS. 10000

    you can adjust your money

    Ram Account ( creditor ) Dr.10000
    To Ram Account ( Debtor ) 10000

    But befor this adjustment , you need acceptance with other party . If he has not accepted . Then you must follow , regular payment and receipt voucher for passing the entries.

  6. Its Really helpful............Thanks a lot..

  7. Dear Vinod sir,
    I want to know how to change date in tally 7.2 at the earlier class you are said that one but in our tally 7.2 there is no changed date. so please tell me one easy and comfortable method.
    thank you.
    your student.

  8. Kalpana, have you checked your tally 7.2's configuration , it may be yes on Skip date field so after this you can change your data or if yes . You may also go to display and then day book . This is alter mode of voucher entry , here you can change your voucher entry date . I think this will be helpful for you .

  9. Dear Vinod
    please let me know while making ledgers in tally which group is used for discount recieved/allowed and sales return/purchase return,

  10. Dear P.Seegl,

    discount recevieved account should make under indirect income.

    Discount allowed account under indirect expenses

    create sale return or purchase return account in ledger, just go to voucher type and then create sale return type under credit note and purchase return type under debit note and then create sale return account under sale account and purchase return account under purchase and pass the voucher entry of sale return in credit note and purchase return entry under debit note. Ok

  11. hi sir ,

    please let me know while making ledgers in tally which group is used for drawing.

  12. Dear Gagan,

    for creating drawing ledger account, you can use capital account as the group and keep drawing account under capital account because drawing is the part of capital and if you use drawing it means decrease in capital

  13. dear sir
    you have put drawing a/c under c. assets
    but i think best perfect drawing a/c under (capital a/c dr. balance ) because drawing less capital a/c.

  14. Thanks Jitendra, You are right and now drawing account has been under correct head that is capital.
