1. ‘General’ Setting in Voucher Type

[26-A-Sales Process in TallyPrime-3 & Higher]

Type of Voucher

The type of voucher should be any one of the predefined voucher types (already listed). The new voucher type would inherit the properties of this predefined voucher type. It would function exactly like the predefined voucher.

Abbr (Abbreviation)

Even if the Abbreviation is not specified, TallyPrime automatically sets a default name for the Voucher. In this example, Sale is the abbreviation. Though there is no restriction on the length of the abbreviation, it should preferably consist of five characters or less.

(A) Method of Voucher Numbering

This is, perhaps, one reason for your opting for a new voucher type. There are Five methods available: The Methods of Numbering list appears as shown below:

[27-Sales Process in TallyPrime-3 & Higher]


This method is flexible. If Automatic method is selected, then TallyPrime numbers the vouchers automatically.

Automatic (Manual Override)

Select Automatic (Manual Override) if you want to auto-number the vouchers and manually override the auto-numbering, if required. For example, if the voucher number is 10, you can manually override the voucher number as required, say 21. The next voucher number will be 22.

Set Prevent Duplicated to Yes to avoid duplicate voucher numbers during entry. You can enable this option only if there are no transactions of this voucher type.


This method allows you to number the vouchers manually. It does not check for the sequence of the numbers and permits you to specify anything that you wish in the voucher number field. However, you may choose to prevent entry of duplicate numbers. If you would like to do so, then set Prevent Duplicates to Yes.

  1. Prevention of Duplicates is possible if you enable the option at the time of creation. You may enable it later (by alteration) only if there are no transactions of this voucher type.
  2. If you face difficulty due to existing transactions, just create another voucher type for preventing duplicates of subsequent voucher numbers.

Multi-user Auto

Select this option to enable the allotment of subsequent voucher number in a multi-user environment when multiple users are working on the same company data and recording vouchers.


This will disable numbering of such vouchers. If you select this method, no further information is required.

(B) Configure in Method of Voucher Numbering for GST:

If the Method of Voucher Numbering is set to Automatic, then two additional fields are displayed…

[28-Sales Process in TallyPrime-3 & Higher]

(i)  Numbering behaviour on insertion/deletion:

You will see this option if you have selected Automatic or Multi-user Auto as the Method of Voucher Numbering. Generally, when you insert or delete a transaction, your existing voucher numbers might get affected. However, you now have the option to either retain the original voucher numbers or renumber the vouchers, as per your requirement.

(ii)   Set / Alter additional numbering details :

Setting this field to Yes, Voucher Type Creation (Secondary) screen is displayed.

Voucher type Method Start Number Prefix Suffix






























(iii)   Show unused vch nos. in transactions for Retain Original Voucher No. behaviour:

When you delete transactions or mark them as optional, then the corresponding voucher numbers might remain unused. This option will help you view such unused voucher numbers during voucher entry and reuse the numbers, as required.

This option will appear when you have set the numbering behaviour as Retain Original Voucher No..

Press Ctrl+A to save the details.

2. A further discussion on these options is necessary.

[31-Sales Process in TallyPrime-3 & Higher]

Use EFFECTIVE dates for Vouchers?

Select Yes if you want to enter effective dates for vouchers. You would opt for this option when you have recorded a transaction on a particular date, but the voucher comes into effect only on a future date. If the effective date is entered, the overdue/ageing will be considered from the effective date and not from the voucher date.

Allow zero-valued transactions

Set the option Allow zero-valued transactions to Yes if required. enabling this option will allow this voucher type to accept transaction without any value.

Make ‘Optional’ as Default

Setting this option to Yes, will set your Voucher to Optional Voucher by default. Refer to Optional Vouchers for further details.

Note:     For Memorandum and Reversing Journal voucher the option Make Optional as Default will not be shown.

Allow Narration in voucher ?

Select Yes to give a common narration for the entire voucher. TallyPrime vouchers can have multiple entries. Hence, you may wish to give a common narration for all the entries of the voucher. Select No, if you do not want a common narration.

Provide Narrations for each ledger in voucher  – Yes

Select Yes, if you want to give a separate narration for each entry of a voucher. This would be applicable for a multiple entry voucher where you want separate details for each entry. Select No if you do not want a separate narration for each entry.

[32-Sales Process in TallyPrime-3 & Higher]
