Stock Items are mainly purchased and sold on the basis of quantity. The quantity in turn is measured by units. You can measure the Stock Item by Units, like money is measured in Currency. For example, Liters, Meters, Kilograms, Pieces, Box, Dozen, etc. Units can be classified under the following types :

  1. Single / Simple Units : When only one Unit is used for receipt and issue of stock items. Above-mentioned are all example of Single Units.
  2. Compound Units: When two different types of Units can be used for receipt and issue of the Stock item is called compound unit. For example :
First Unit Conversion Factor Second Unit
Dozen 12 Pcs.
Meter 1000 Millimetres.
Box 30 Pcs.

UQCs are used to maintain consistency and prevent variations in quantities in the returns filed by different businesses.

Using TallyPrime, you can map your unit of measurement to the UQC given by the department, and file the returns.
