Using Voucher Classes for Sales Cycle in TallyPrime: 3 Steps + Example

Voucher classes can be a powerful tool for organizing and managing your sales cycle data in TallyPrime.

Here’s a detailed explanation of how to use them effectively, along with an example:

1. Benefits of Voucher Classes in Sales Cycle:

1. Improved Sales Analysis:

Categorize sales by product type, customer group, or any other relevant criteria for better insights into your sales performance.

2. Streamlined Reporting:

Generate reports that filter data based on voucher classes, allowing for targeted analysis of specific sales segments.

3. Enhanced Data Entry Efficiency:

Pre-defined voucher classes can automate certain fields based on the class selection, saving time during data entry.

2. Setting Up Voucher Classes for Sales:

1. Access “Create Voucher Type” or “Alter Voucher Type”:

  • Open the Gateway of Tally (usually Alt+F12).
  • Choose “Create Voucher Type” to define a new voucher type with classes for sales (e.g., “Sales with Classes”) or “Alter Voucher Type” to modify the existing “Sales” voucher type.

2. Enable “Maintain voucher class” (Optional):

Within the voucher type creation/alteration screen, look for an option like “Maintain voucher class” or “Enable Voucher Class.”

Tick this box if you want to use voucher classes for sales.

3. Define Voucher Classes:

  • Create multiple voucher classes relevant to your sales cycle. Here are some examples:
    • Product Category: Electronics, Clothing, Furniture (as in the previous example).
    • Customer Group: Wholesale, Retail, Online Customers.
    • Sales Channel: Direct Sales, Online Sales, Distributor Sales.
    • Tax Rate: Taxable, Exempt, Zero Rated (if applicable).

3. Using Voucher Classes During Sales Voucher Creation:

1. Create a New Sales Voucher:

Go to “Vouchers” within TallyPrime and select “Sales” (or your newly created “Sales with Classes” voucher type).

2. Select Voucher Class:

A window will appear prompting you to choose a voucher class.

Select the most appropriate class based on the sales transaction details.

3. Complete the Voucher:

  • Enter the remaining sales information like customer details, items sold, quantities, and prices.
  • Depending on your voucher class setup, certain fields (like tax rates) might be automatically populated based on the chosen class.

4. Example: Sales with Product Category Classes
