Create a Job Worker Ledger in TallyPrime: 2 Methods + Example

A Job Worker ledger in TallyPrime is essential for recording transactions related to materials sent to them, finished goods received back, and any associated charges.

Here’s a detailed guide on creating a Job Worker ledger:

1. Accessing Gateway of Tally:

Launch TallyPrime and navigate to the Gateway of Tally menu (Alt+F12).

2. Creating Ledger:

There are two ways to access the ledger creation screen:

Method 1 (Recommended):

  • Select “Create” from the Gateway of Tally menu.
  • Choose “Ledger” from the submenu.

Method 2 (Alternative):

  • Press Alt+G (Go To) and choose “Create Master” from the submenu.
  • Select “Ledger” from the following options.

3. Entering Details:

  • In the “Ledger Creation” screen, enter the following details:
    • Name: Enter the name of the Job Worker (e.g., “ABC Stitching”).
    • Under: Select the appropriate group for Job Worker ledgers. Common options include “Sundry Creditors” or a dedicated “Job Workers” group if created.
    • Opening Balance (Optional): If the Job Worker has any outstanding dues, enter the opening balance here.

4. Configuring Ledger (Optional – F12):

  • Press F12 (Configure) to access ledger configuration options. Consider these settings:
    • Allow Bills By Bill: Enable this option if you want to maintain balances for each job work order associated with this Job Worker.
    • Maintain Balances bill-by-bill: This further breaks down balances within each bill by individual transactions (purchase invoices, etc.).

5. Saving the Ledger:

Press Ctrl+S (Save) to create the Job Worker ledger in TallyPrime.

6. Example: Creating a Job Worker Ledger in TallyPrime

You outsource stitching work to “ABC Stitching.” Here’s how to create their Job Worker ledger:

  1. Go to Gateway > Create > Ledger (or use the alternative method).
  2. Enter “ABC Stitching” as the name.
  3. Choose “Sundry Creditors” (or a dedicated Job Workers group) under “Under.”
  4. Leave the opening balance blank if there are no outstanding dues.
  5. Press Ctrl+S to save the Job Worker ledger.

7. Additional Considerations:

  • You can create separate Job Worker ledgers for different outsourcing partners you work with.
  • Consider enabling bill-by-bill options if you need detailed tracking of balances for each job work order associated with a specific Job Worker.

8. Next Steps:

With the Job Worker ledger created, you can proceed with creating Job Work Out Orders to record materials sent for processing and Job Work In Orders to record finished goods received back from the Job Worker.

These processes are explained in detail in separate responses.

By creating Job Worker ledgers, you establish a system for managing transactions with your outsourcing partners, ensuring accurate record-keeping and efficient cost analysis for your job work activities.
