Creating a Excise Purchase Voucher - Availing CENVAT Credit [Excise for Manufacturer] in Tally.ERP 9

In Tally.ERP 9, CENVAT Credit on purchases from Manufacturer can be availed -

  1. While recording the purchase transaction (in the same invoice)

  2. If the Invoice received has correct duty calculation

  3. If the Invoice received has duty calculation errors: It is possible that in the invoice received there may be some calculation errors (when invoice prepared manually) or Duty Round Off. As per excise rule, receiving party can not make changes in the suppliers invoice. Even if it is a mistake in the excise calculations, buyer is supposed to enter the invoice as it is  without making any correction. In this scenario you have to alter the duty amount while recording the transaction.

In Tally.ERP 9, from Release 3.0 you can alter the Duty amount while availing the CENVAT Credit on purchases from manufacturer. For More details on altering the duty value in Excise Purchase voucher with Nature of Purchase as Manufacturer Refer - Availing CENVAT Credit on Purchases from Manufacturer (Duty Value Alteration)

  1. Later by recording a separate Debit Note: In this case first purchase invoice will be recorded without availing credit and later a separate Debit Note will be recorded to avail the CENVAT credit

Here we are illustrating the scenario for the first use case without altering the duty value. For the second use case refer Partial CENVAT Credit on Purchases
