Use Godowns / Locations for Inventory Storage in TallyPrime Accounting Software

If you are using more than one location, bin, rack, cabinet, and so on, create Godowns/Locations in TallyPrime to track your inventory. Similarly, if you keep inventory in different projects or maintain raw materials and finished goods in separate locations, Godowns/Locations will serve the purpose.

After you have created a Godown/Location, you can allocate inventory to the godowns of your choice, including the default godown Main Location.

TallyPrime helps you to see the details of the materials at the top level as well as at each individual level, in a hierarchy of godowns.

For example,

you can simply create Godown-A, Godown-B, and Godown -C, or you can create Southern Region, with Godown-A and Godown-B under it, and Eastern Region, with Godown-C and Godown-D under it. Then, you can get the total inventory in Southern Region, and the inventory in Godown-B.

1.      Create Godowns / Locations (as per given structure) in TallyPrime

Southern Region

Eastern Region

To start allocating your stock items in godowns, you need to create a godown first.

  1. Gateway of Tally > Create > select Godowns > press Enter.
