Company Features | F11

In TallyPrime, when you create a company, the key features required to record your business transactions are set by default. As per your business requirements – such as inventory management, tax-based invoicing, payroll management – you can set your preferences using the Company Features.

As per the preferences set, you can enter transaction data accordingly. In most of the cases, you can incrementally enable or disable other features by pressing F11 at any point you need.

Maintain your books of accounts: Depending on your bookkeeping needs for your company, you can enable other accounting features, such as cost centre and interest calculations. Additionally, if your sales transactions need to be maintained bill by bill, TallyPrime helps with all such business preferences and many more.

Manage your stock/inventory: If you are using inventory in your business, you can set up your inventory-related preferences. In TallyPrime, you can manage your Inventory independently or choose to update your books of accounts with stock details. You can set up other Inventory features – Price Levels, Batches, Job Work, Job Costing, and so on – depending on your business practices.

Set up statutory features: If your business needs to comply with statutory requirements, you can set up your tax details for invoicing purpose. With TallyPrime, you can define details for GST, VAT, Excise, Service Tax, TDS or TCS, as applicable to your business. All invoices that you create will continue to refer to the statutory details you define here.

Tally Software Services (TSS): If you also need to access your Company data on the go, especially when you are travelling or at a client location, TallyPrime has it all. You can enable the Reports in Browser feature to view key reports from any other device. Additionally, you can access your Company data remotely and also synchronise data available at different locations.

Payroll management: Does your business require you to manage salary and pay heads for employees? If yes, you can enable the Payroll feature for your company, including the related statutory features.

Other features: If your business has multiple addresses and you need to use them in invoicing, you can add as many company address as needed. Also, you can keep track of different users’ interactions with the vouchers for auditing purposes. All such needs can be set up at the company level.
