Physical Stock Verification in TallyPrime: 5 Easy Steps + Example

In TallyPrime, physical stock verification refers to the process of manually counting your actual inventory on hand and comparing it to the stock levels recorded in your accounting software.

This helps identify any discrepancies between the physical stock and the book stock (system records).
