2. Books and Financial Year Details

As you all know that

Financial year starts from 1st April to 31st March of the preceding year. Current financial year 2019-20 i.e. from 1st April, 2019 to 31st March, 2020. 

Books Creation – The date from which your business has started functioning. i.e from that date onward you will be entering your business transactions.

Here is an example for better understanding, if you started your business on 1st November 2019, your books will be beginning on 1st November 2019 (01-11-2019) but your financial year beginning date will be 1st April, 2019 (01-04-2019).

3. Security Control

Unique Password – It Should be Strong and must include uppercase, Lower case, Special Character and numbers. For Example –  Abcd123!@#Xyz

NOTE: Remember the password correctly and save it in a very wise place otherwise you will lose your data.

You can also use an Additional Security option in which you will get more security options. It will be required if more than 1 person is using the same tally account on different devices.

Name of Administrator

Tally Audit Features – (This Option is only for CA)

We have completed all the major company creation details.

Let’s look at some of the minor details. They are also know as Base Currency Information.

4. Base Currency Information

  • Indian Currency Symbol – ₹  / INR
  • Suffix Symbol to amount – Its basically keeping Rupee symbol before the actual amount in Tally.

Actually its not necessary but it good to practice this when you print the accounts. I personally Prefer this.

  • Space between Amount and Currency symbol – You don’t have to do anything it will automatically add space between Currency and Symbol.

NOTE: It is our own preference whether to put a space or not.

  • Amount in Millions / Crores – You can choose the amount weather to be shown in Millions or Crores.

Its your Call …

I usually prefer to go for Crores and lakhs instead of Billions.

  • Number of decimal places
  • Amount in words – This is amount in words for decimal places.

And by this we are done filling all the necessary details to create our own brand new Company in tally.

Last Step
