Integrated/ Non-integrated accounting and inventory: With the Inventory function in Tally.ERP 9, you have the option to choose closing stock balance from inventory records or from the stock ledger account.
If accounts are not integrated with inventory, you can enter the closing stock value manually by creating Stock ledger account, for a major effect on the Balance Sheet and Profit & Loss Account. If set to Yes, it extracts the stock/inventory balance figures from the inventory records and provides a drill down to the Stock registers from the Balance Sheet.
If set to No, it ignores the inventory books figures and picks up the manually-entered closing stock balances from the ledger account created, allowing the independent maintenance of accounts and inventory.
When faced with compensating errors in stock records caused by wrong allocation to items, this feature allows finalisation of financial books without waiting for the reconciliation of stocks.
