Receipt Note Voucher (GRN)

A Receipt Note voucher is used to record receipt of goods/items at stores. For example , the Company receives new stock item from a Supplier. If a Purchase Order exists for that supply, selecting the PO reference in the Receipt Note will display its particulars.

The details recorded in the Receipt Note are the PO reference, Ledger account, Supplier's name and address, Name of stock item, Stock location, quantity, rate, amount and the transaction narration.

Purchase includes Accounting and Inventory.

The Receipt Note is similar to the Goods Receipt Note (GRN) type of entry. When the Receipt Note is passed it updates the inventory levels.

In Tally when a Receipt Note is tagged to a Purchase entry the whole transaction is completed.

If Receipt Note is accounted but the Purchase entry is not, it is treated as Goods Received but Bills are not received.

If the Purchase entry is accounted and the Receipt Note is not, it is treated as Bills Received but Goods are not received.

One Purchase entry can be tagged to many Receipt Notes. Similarly, one Receipt Note can be tagged to many Purchase bills. It is not necessary for all Receipt Notes to be tagged with Purchase entries and vice versa.

When the stock received is a part of purchase and we wish to keep track of the purchase bill for accounting, a Tracking No. is assigned while accounting the Receipt Note. The Tracking No. is selected while accounting the Purchase bill/invoice. Similarly, we can assign a Tracking No in the Purchase voucher and  select it while accounting the Receipt  Note.

A Receipt Note or Purchase Entry can be prepared first. It is not compulsory that a Receipt Note should be prepared before accounting the Purchase Entry or the Purchase entry should be accounted before preparing a Receipt Note.
