Allow Back-Dated Transaction Entries | Update Financial Year in TallyPrime

If you have maintained your books of accounts prior to the current financial year, you can add all of the back-dated transactions to your company in TallyPrime.

By default, the books and financial years in TallyPrime are both set to 1-Apr-2020.
To allow entries of transactions in TallyPrime starting 1-Jun-2019, you will need to update the financial year information of the company.

  1. Press Alt+K (Company) > Alter.
  2. In the Company Alteration screen, update the Financial year beginning from as 1-Apr-2019 and the Books beginning from date as 1-Jun-2019.

Set Up Your Company

Maintaining your business transactions on a day-to-day basis is critical to your business. To keep a record of all your business transactions, you need to first create a company in TallyPrime. Through the company, you can also view and update all your transaction entries, as needed, and go through the financial reports based on the transactions that you maintain.

Create company: To create the company, just enter the company name, address and other details, such as financial year, security, and base currency information. Once you have created your company, based on your business preferences, you can use the accounting, inventory, payroll, and taxation features. You can also specify the tax registration details as applicable, such as GST, VAT, Excise, TCS, or TDS, which can be accounted for your transactions.

Security: All the business transactions that you maintain in the company remain safe. You can enable additional security options for your company to prevent unauthorised access to your transaction records.

If you have more than one user accessing your company, you can set up security for each user based on their roles.

You can create an account in TallyPrime for each user. Based on the user’s roles, you can access to the tasks the user can perform.


Multiple companies: Do you have more than one business? If yes, you can create multiple companies in TallyPrime, maintain transactions separately for each business, and also manage the returns for each company accordingly.

Group company: If you are maintaining multiple companies, you can get a consolidated view of such business reports by using the Group Company feature. Viewing the financial reports separately for each business and consolidating the accounts manually can be a tedious task.

Once you have set up your company in TallyPrime based on your business requirements, you can record and manage your day-to-day transactions, and track them – even remotely.

MSME in TallyPrime

Identify, Track, Pay, and Report Payments to MSME Businesses

In this topic we will learn about the challenges faced by the MSME businesses due to the lack of visibility of their MSME status. We will also look into the provisions made by the Government to support such businesses and how the use of TallyPrime will improve the visibility in their business transactions and accelerate the movement of funds.

Micro and small businesses registered under the MSMED Act, 2006, get benefits such as loans at a lower interest, payment guarantees from buyers, and so on. The payment guarantee provision protects these businesses from delays in payment from their buyers. As per this act, any buyer of goods or services from registered MSMEs must make the payment on or before the agreed date or within 45 days. In case of a delay in payment beyond the specified date, buyers must pay interest on the amount. Generally in such cases, the interest rate is three times more than the rate that is notified by the Reserve Bank of India.

Additionally, the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) has notified that companies having outstanding dues to the MSME (Micro & Small) enterprises have to file the details of all the current outstanding dues to MSMEs in MSME Form-1 with the ROC (Registrar of Companies).

Despite all these facilities, the micro and small businesses are not fully benefitting from the provisions in the MSMED Act. This is primarily due to the absence of an identification for MSME Suppliers, which allows the buyers to omit/miss the MSME status of the supplier in their annual statement of accounts. As a result, the auditors do not detect such omissions because of the non-availability of any identification for MSME status.

The MSMEs should mention/print their MSME status on their invoices, bills and other relevant documents. The visibility provided to buyers and their accountants will help in the release of the payments on time and it will be also easy to file for compensation in case of delay in payments.

TallyPrime with its MSME feature will play this role of increasing the visibility of MSME status.

  • MSME Enterprises will be able to update their UDYAM Registration details and print the same in business documents.
  • Buyers from MSME can update UDYAM Registration details in ledgers and filter bill payables for MSMEs to ensure timely payment. They can also readily get details for MSME Form 1 for all overdues to MSME suppliers.

Buyers Update MSME Party’s UDYAM Details in Ledgers

The businesses purchasing goods and services from MSMEs can set up the status of the supplier as MSME. This sets reminders to make payments on time to all such parties and avoid paying interest for late payments. This also enables you to create and file returns quickly with all the details of payments to MSMEs.

How to Create and Use Barcodes for Inventory Management with TallyPrime

TallyPrime is one of the most widely used business management software that allows you to get complete control over your inventory, from managing, tracking, and reordering it to much more. One of its key features is barcode assignment.

TallyPrime lets you quickly assign barcodes to your inventory, which makes inventory management and tracking a breeze. But how can you best use TallyPrime’s barcode feature for efficient inventory management? Read on to know more about the same.

5 vital things you should know before using barcodes with TallyPrime

  • Be clear on the type of barcode standard you would want to match your line of business. Some of the common barcode scanners that TallyPrime supports are Universal Product Code and International Article Number.
  • Next, you need a proper barcode generator that is in line with the barcode scanner you have selected.
  • Every item in your stock should be assigned a unique barcode.
  • In TallyPrime, you can choose a barcode that has a maximum of 32 characters.
  • When using the barcode scanner on your inventory, the appropriate software should be installed in your system, and the scanner should be connected to your system at all times.

A brief overview of the steps involved in barcode creation in TallyPrime

Before you know about these steps to create barcodes in the software, it would be a good idea to have a customised module of TallyPrime to suit the nature of your business

  • You will first assign barcodes to your stock items in TallyPrime by opening a particular item in the master file.
  • When you open this item, you will find the name of this item in the left-hand corner. Below this field, you will notice a field named, “Alias”. Here, you can enter the unique barcode for that item.
  • Please remember to press Ctrl-A after entering the code, to save the details. This way, the code will come up automatically whenever you enter the name of the item in the TallyPrime module.

Steps to generate vouchers, using the barcodes you have created:

  • To create a voucher, press Alt+G on the main module page.
  • Now, press F8 to view the sales page.
  • In the page that appears, you will find the field, “Name of item”. Keep your cursor in this field, and use the barcode scanner to scan the codes on the items. You will notice that the unique barcode of that particular item will automatically appear on the screen now.
  • All you need to do is enter the rate and quantity of the items, and the amount gets calculated automatically.
  • You can now save the voucher after entering the relevant GST details.
  • With this process, you can now create sales, purchases and other transactions within minutes, thanks to the automatic barcode generation feature of TallyPrime.

Why choose TallyPrime for assigning barcodes to inventory?

Have you wondered how using barcodes with TallyPrime will help you have better control over your inventory than before? Here are some points that will clear any ambiguity you might have:

  • Simple to use – Once you have the proper system in place, including the required software to create and print barcodes, you will have almost finished the process of assigning barcodes to your inventory. This process is simple, and with a single scan, all the details of your inventory get recorded into your system for easy management and tracking.
  • Good value for money – Using TallyPrime and a good barcode generator would cost your business only a few thousand of rupees. However, the value it generates is priceless, as it helps you manage all your inventory (across all locations) from a single point with utmost efficiency. The peace of mind you get when you have taken professional care of your inventory cannot be explained in words.
  • Accurate data at all times – Data accuracy plays a big part in the success and integrity of your business. With the barcode system of TallyPrime, you can be sure of data accuracy at all times because manual intervention is reduced considerably.
  • Guaranteed safety of inventory – When you have proper barcodes assigned to your inventory, you don’t have to worry about them getting lost or destroyed in transit. You can easily track the status of your inventory with these codes, and ensure that they get delivered to the right customers at the right time. Every type of inventory is assigned a specific code; hence, there are no chances of duplications or missing stock.

How to Easily Shift/Migrate Your Data to TallyPrime

Many businesses use Excel spreadsheets to manage their books of accounts. While this setup may be enough for a small organisation, businesses find it necessary to adopt an accounting software when they begin scale their operations. Adopting a new software comes with its difficulties.

When you start to use the new software for your accounting operations, the first step you will need to perform is entering all of your spreadsheet data into the new system. For many software products in the market this is a manual task.

With TallyPrime you can easily migrate your excel data to the software. The latest version of TallyPrime 4.0 has a handy Excel Import function. As the name suggests, this feature will help you to migrate all the data from your Excel files to the software without any manual effort.

Steps to migrate data to TallyPrime from an Excel worksheet

Given below are the steps to migrate data from Excel spreadsheet to TallyPrime

  1. Click on Alt+O, and then choose the Configurations from the Import Screen.
  1. You will see the List of Configurations on the screen now. Click on the Show More option to view the entire list.
  2. In this list, there are two sections—General and Banking. Here are the options you will see under the Banking section:
    • Location of the Import/Export Files—Choose where to save the file after successful import or export.
    • The behaviour of Import when exceptions exist—When the original file has some exceptions (like missing data or invalid data), how do you want to import it to TallyPrime? Choose if you want to ignore the exceptions, import with exceptions, or stop the import when you notice the first exception.
    • Overwrite vouchers—Set the option to “Yes”. This way, duplicate vouchers will be overwritten if the export and import files are of the same company.
    • Removal of invalid characters—Set the option to “Yes”. This way, invalid characters like additional spaces, tabs and other noise characters will be removed from the Excel file before importing.
    • Import batch size—How many files do you want to import at a time? You can set the batch size accordingly here.
    • Enable detailed log—Do you want to see a detailed log of errors during data import? Set the option as per your preferences.

Once you follow these steps, your data gets seamlessly migrated to TallyPrime so that you can continue your business operations effectively.
