  • hello, I know how to book Fixed Assets Purchased but in cases where fixed asset is manufactured in house, What should be treatment of it? How can we show inventory bought and consumed for the purpose of creating Fixed Asset and how can we link that consumption of Inventory with the Fixed asset account created for that purpose.

    In Nutshell, I want to show fixed asset manufactured in the company factory by using Raw Material specifically purchased for production of Fixes Asset. Can it be possible in Tally ERP 9?

    • You can book in house manufacturing of fixed asset this way.

      Create a ledger in the name of Fixed asset.for example Furniture Account
      Book all expense like purchase of raw materials,wages and other expense related to the production in the same ledger.
      The total of fixed asset ( furniture) account will be treated as the cost Fixed asset.

  • I have a question regarding what should be the voucher for a downpayment purchase of a fixed asset

    For e.g A cement company purchasing a computer (fixed asset ) with 100 % down payment.

    Journal Entry of the same will be

    Fixed Asset A/c Dr
    To Cash/Bank A/c

    So will this come under Payment Voucher whilst purchasing on downpayment

    For a credit purchase the Voucher is Journal but as i said i was a bit confused as to what will the voucher for downpayment be either in cash or through cheque

  • if i have purchased some wooden cabinets for office & the installation charges entry if i suppose to post then how to do that?
