• The accounting cycle is the same in a manufacturing
company, merchandising company, and a service
company. Journal entries are used to record transactions,
adjusting journal entries are used to recognize costs and
revenues in the appropriate period, financial statements are
prepared, and closing entries are recorded. Raw material
purchases are recorded in the raw material inventory
account if the perpetual inventory method is used, or the
raw materials purchases account if the periodic inventory
method is used. For example, using the periodic inventory
method, the purchase of $750 of raw materials on account
is recorded as an increase (debit) to raw materials
purchases and an increase (credit) to accounts payable.

you have configured inventory vouchers to ignore physical
stock differences. If you have configured the vouchers so that
physical stock difference is not ignored, then all transactions
subsequent to the physical stock voucher will use the balance

• Memorandum Voucher
This is a non-accounting voucher and the entries made using memo voucher will not affect your
accounts. In other words, Tally.ERP 9 does not post these entries to ledgers, but stores them in
a separate Memorandum Register. You can alter and convert a Memo Voucher into a regular
voucher when you decide to bring the entry into your books.
Some of the uses of Memorandum Vouchers are:
• Making suspense payments
Consider that a company gives its employees cash to buy office supplies, the exact nature and
cost of which are unknown. For this transaction you can enter a voucher for the petty cash
advance, a voucher to record the actual expenditure details when they are known, and another
voucher to record the return of surplus cash.
However, a simpler way of doing it is to enter a Memo voucher when the cash is advanced, and
then turn it into a Payment voucher for the actual amount spent, when the details are known.
Consider the following Example:
The Company pays its employee Rs. 1000 as petty cash advance for Office Expenses.
The following entry has to be passed.
To use Memorandum voucher, Enable the following option from F11: Accounting

VAT (VALUE ADDED TAX)
A value added tax(VAT) is a form of consumption tax. From the
perspective of the buyer, it is a tax on the purchase price. From that of
the seller, it is a tax only on the "value added" to a product, material or
service, from an accounting view, by his stage of its manufacture or
distribution. The buyer remits to the government the difference
between these two amounts, and retains the rest for themselves to
offset the taxes he had previously paid on the inputs.
The "value added" to a product by a business is the sale price charged
to its customer, minus the cost of materials and other taxable inputs. A
VAT is like a sales tax in that ultimately only the end consumer is
taxed. It differs from the sales tax in that, with the latter, the tax is
collected and remitted to the government only once, at the point of
purchase by the end consumer. With the VAT, collections, remittances
to the government, and credits for taxes already paid occur each time a
business in the supply chain purchases products from another

TDS (Tax deduction at Source)
Tax Deduction At Source (TDS)
Nothing is as tangled and knotty as the TDS provisons. While some TDS rates are
specified in the individual section which deal with the tax treatment of the particular
stream of income, some rates are included as part of a separate schedule. To make
matters worse, these rates get tampered and modified every year. This result in so
much chaos and confusion, that sometimes those who have to apply TDS, do not
have a clue about what rate to use. Imagine the plight of tax payer.
The genasis of the problem lies in the complicated nature of the tax laws. The
authorities complain that less than 2% of our population actually pays taxes.
However, simpliflying the provisions is not viewed as a possible solution. On the
other hand, in an effort to bring more and more people into the tax net, the
lawmakers simply endup complicating the law. And the rule is simple more the
complexity more the room.
TDS is final tax payable- at the time of filling his returns, the assessee pays the
balance if any or asks for refund, as the case maybe. Ergo, it behooves the
Department to have a standard uniform rate -convenient both for itself as well as
The most unfortunate part is that we could have easily done away with any TDS
provided the deparrtment had good infrastructure to apprehend assessees avoiding
tax only through TDS.

IN TALLY 9.0
In a company, payroll is the sum of all financial records of
salaries for an employee, wages, bonuses and deductions. In
accounting, payroll refers to the amount paid to employees for
services they provided during a certain period of time. Payroll plays a
major role in a company for several reasons. From an accounting point
of view, payroll is crucial because payroll and payroll taxes
considerably affect the net income of most companies and they are
subject to laws and regulations (e.g. in the U.S. payroll is subject to
federal and state regulations). From ethics in business viewpoint
payroll is a critical department as employees are responsive to payroll
errors and irregularities: good employee morale requires payroll to be
paid timely and accurately. The primary mission of the payroll
department is to ensure that all employees are paid accurately and
timely with the correct withholdings and deductions, and to ensure the
withholdings and deductions are remitted in a timely manner. This
includes salary payments, tax withholdings, and deductions from a
