Voucher Class for Voucher Types in TallyPrime: 4 Steps + Example

In TallyPrime, voucher classes act as a layer of organization within voucher types.

They allow you to further categorize transactions within the same voucher type, offering more granular control over your financial data.

Here’s a detailed explanation of voucher classes with an example:

1. Understanding Voucher Classes:

1. Function:

Voucher classes help group similar transactions under a specific voucher type.

This adds another level of detail to your accounting records, making them easier to manage and analyze.

2. Benefits of Voucher Classes:

1. Improved Organization:

Classifying transactions within voucher types enhances clarity and simplifies record-keeping.

2. Enhanced Reporting:

By filtering reports based on voucher classes, you can generate more precise and insightful financial reports.

3. Streamlined Data Entry:

Pre-defined voucher classes within a voucher type can save time by automatically populating certain fields (depending on the class).

3. Creating and Utilizing Voucher Classes:

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

  • Go to the Gateway of Tally (usually Alt+F12).
  • Choose “Create Voucher Type” to define a new voucher type with classes or “Alter Voucher Type” to modify an existing one.

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.”

Enable this option if you want to use voucher classes for this voucher type.

3. Define Voucher Classes:

Once enabled, you can create multiple voucher classes within the same voucher type.

Assign meaningful names to each class that reflect the category of transactions they represent.

4. Utilize Voucher Classes During Voucher Creation:

When creating vouchers under this voucher type, you’ll be prompted to select the appropriate voucher class from the defined list.

    4. Example: Sales Voucher Type with Classes

    1. Scenario:

    You want to categorize your sales transactions within the “Sales” voucher type based on product categories (e.g., Electronics, Clothing, Furniture).

    2. Steps:

    1. Access “Alter Voucher Type” and select “Sales” from the list.
    2. Enable “Maintain voucher class” if it’s not already enabled.
    3. Define three voucher classes: “Electronics,” “Clothing,” and “Furniture.”
    4. Save the changes to the “Sales” voucher type.

    5. Benefits in this Example:

    • When creating sales vouchers, you can now choose the appropriate voucher class based on the product category being sold.
    • This allows you to generate reports that analyze sales figures not just by total sales but also by specific product categories (Electronics, Clothing, Furniture).

    6. Important Considerations:

    1. Planning Voucher Classes:

    Define voucher classes strategically to ensure they effectively categorize your transactions and align with your reporting needs.

    2. Optional Usage:

    Using voucher classes is not mandatory for all voucher types.

    It’s most beneficial when dealing with a high volume of transactions within a single voucher type that can benefit from further classification.

    7. In Conclusion:

    Voucher classes in TallyPrime offer a valuable tool for organizing and managing your financial data within voucher types.

    By strategically defining and utilizing voucher classes, you can enhance the clarity, efficiency, and reporting capabilities of your accounting system.
