Set Closing Stock Manually in the Balance Sheet
In TallyPrime, the value of closing stock displayed in the Balance Sheet is based on the costing method defined for each stock item in the stock item master. The general principle of accounting is to value the stock at purchase cost or market value, whichever is lower. The value of closing stock can be entered manually.
For example, consider that the market value of stock on 1-9-2020 is Rs. 15,00,000. To show this amount as the closing stock value:
- Set the option Integrate accounts with inventory to No in F11: Features .
- Create a ledger ‘Stock’ (under Stock-in-Hand).
- Alter the ledger ‘Stock’ as created above and specify date as 1/09/20 and value as Rs. 15,00,000 in the Closing Balance of Stock Ledger.
