All items (automatic columns): If this option is selected, every ledger account will be displayed in a separate column.
All items (in one column): If this option is selected, all the ledger accounts are displayed in one single column.
Group: You can also select a group of ledger accounts to be displayed together in one column, for example, Sales accounts. For other columns, you can use the additional options, namely Related accounts (automatic columns) or Related Items (in one column).
Related Items (automatic columns or in one column): Related items indicate all the ledger accounts used in a voucher. Hence, the report will be similar to All items (automatic columns). This option is helpful when used in combination with a Group or a specific ledger account in the first column.
Ledger: Select a specific ledger account, for example, VAT/Sales Tax. All other accounts can be put in one or more columns.
For example, in the register shown, Show party’s address has been enabled to add the Address column. Also, Group is selected as Sales Account and Ledger as Transportation Charges to add the respective columns in the report.

Display Sales Register with Profitability

TallyPrime enables you to view profitability from the Sales Register. It calculates gross profits for each invoice based on the Transaction Value and Cost. Gross profit is calculated as the difference between sales value and Cost.

In Sales Register > Voucher Register for any selected month:

  1. Press F7 (Show Profit) to view the profitability or activate the option Show Gross Profit Estimates to Yes in F12 (Configuration).
    Sales Register with Profitability in TallyPrime

The report now displays each invoice with:

  • Transaction ValueInvoice value including taxes
  • Gross Revenue: Actual sale value minus taxes
  • Cost: Book cost of the product
  • Gross ProfitAmount of profit or loss on the sale

Matching the Gross Profit in the Sales Register and Stock Summary and Profit & Loss A/c

The transaction level Gross Profit of Sales Register can be matched with Profit & Loss A/c and Stock Summary reports by enabling the option Show Cost based on Stock Valuation in the Sales Register F12 (Configure) screen.

Consider that your business deals with the two stock items – Books and Dictionaries. In TallyPrime, you have created the stock item master with the following settings:


  • Opening Balance = Quantity 100, at the Rate of Rs. 150 each.
  • Costing Method = FIFO


  • Opening Balance = Quantity 70, at the Rate of Rs. 200 each.
  • Costing Method = Avg Cost (the default setting for stock items). 

Say you have made the following transactions with your parties:


  • 50 books at the rate of Rs. 170 each
  • 25 Dictionaries at the rate of Rs. 210 each.


  • 50 books at the rate of 190 each.
  • 25 Dictionaries at the rate of 225 each. 

Now, open the Stock Summary and Sales Register reports. 

  1. Press Alt+G (Go To) > Stock Summary
    Alternatively, Gateway of Tally > Stock Summary
    The Stock Summary report appears, as shown below:
  2. Press Alt+G (Go To) > Sales Register.
    Alternatively, Gateway of Tally > Display More Reports > Account Books > Sales Register
    The Sales Register report appears, as shown below:

The Gross Profit shown in your Sales Register will be different from the Gross Profit shown in Stock Summary.

This is because the Stock Summary report by default considers the gross profit based on the Opening Balance for Books. It does not calculate the profit based on the purchase cost for the stock item Books, which is set as FIFO.

Configure the Sales Register report to display the gross profit based on the Stock Valuation method of stock items. In this case:

  •  Press F12 (Configure) > Show Cost based on Stock Valuation > Yes.

Notice that the Gross Profit in the Sales Register matches with the Stock Summary report after enabling the option. The Sales Register appears, as shown below:Sales-Voucher-List

The total Gross Profit of Sales Register will not match with Stock Summary and Profit and Loss account reports in
the following scenarios:

  •  If batches and godowns are enabled for the stock items.
  • If there are discounts and additional costs involved in the sales transactions. For example, lighting charges
    (for factory) will not be included in the cost of the stock item. Since this is a direct expense, it will be included in the Profit and Loss A/c.
  • If the actual and billed quantities of a sales voucher are different.
  • Inventory Vouchers are not considered to calculate the Gross Profit in Profit and Loss A/c.
  • In the financial year 2022-23, an accounts-only company was maintained, and the stock values were updated in the ledger. In financial year 2023-24, if you want to maintain accounts with inventory, there will be differences in Gross Profit of Sales Register with Stock Summary and Profit & Loss A/c. 

Reasons for Difference in Values of Sales Register and Profit & Loss Account

The Sales Register displays complete Sales value including the Tax Amount, whereas the Profit & Loss A/c displays only the Sales value. This results in a difference in the values of Sales Register and Profit & Loss A/c reports. 

Consider the following example of Sales invoices recorded with and without Tax to view the impact on Sales Register and Profit & Loss A/c. 

  1. Record a Sales invoice without tax as shown below:
  2. Record a Sales invoice with GST as shown below:
  3. Compare the values in Sales Register and Profit & Loss A/c.
    1. Press Alt+G (Go To) > Sales Register.
      Alternatively, Gateway of Tally > Display More Reports > Account Books > Sales Register
      The total value includes GST.
    2. Press Alt+G (Go To) > Profit & Loss A/c
      Alternatively, Gateway of Tally > Profit & Loss A/c
      The Sales Accounts displays the values without GST.


Such discrepancies may arise in reports like Sales Register, Stock Summary and Profit & Loss A/c and you can resolve them by following the procedures given above. This will ensure accuracy and consistency of maintaining your company data.
