Record Journal Voucher to Account for Loss or Damage of Goods (Excise for Importer)

Sometimes after purchase of goods there are chances that some of the purchased goods are damaged or there is a shortage in the quantity of goods delivered. However, during the purchase the importer has already incurred a tax. Similarly during sales too such instances occur. In these cases, the incurred tax should be reversed. This can be recorded in TallyPrime using a journal and such an entry is called adjustment entry.
