Creating a Current Liabilities / Assets Ledger in TallyPrime Accounting Software

Accounts like Outstanding Liabilities, Statutory Liabilities and other minor liabilities can be created directly under Current Liabilities and Assets can be classified as Current assets and Fixed assets.

A ledger is the actual account head to identify your transactions and are used in all accounting vouchers.

For example, purchase, payments, sales, receipts, and others accounts heads are ledger accounts. Without a ledger, you cannot record any transaction.

All Ledgers have to be classified into Groups. These groups and ledgers are classified into Profit and Loss or Balance Sheet.

The creation and usage of Groups in TallyPrime has been explained earlier. Now you will learn how TallyPrime works with Ledgers.
