Purchase of Free Items or Goods in TallyPrime-3

Purchase of Free Items or Goods in TallyPrime-3 and Higher

In some business cases, when you make a purchase, you might receive a few items for free from the supplier.

For example, if you had placed an order for 12 pieces of an item, the supplier might have billed you for only 10 pcs and given the remaining 2 pcs without any additional cost.

Alternatively, the supplier might have billed you for all 12 pieces and sent 2 additional pieces of the same item or a different item as samples.

TallyPrime provides you the flexibility to record such purchases in two different ways.

  • You can account for free items with transparency and mention the actual quantity and billed quantity of stock items.
  • Also, you can create a purchase voucher without mentioning the rate and amount of the free item but only the quantity.
