Excise Credit Note [Excise for Manufacturer] in Tally.ERP 9

In Release 4.7 of Tally.ERP 9, a new feature in Excise Credit Note has been provided for accounting Excisable Returned Goods, and to avail the corresponding CENVAT Credit.

A manufacturer registered under Central Excise, will raise an Excise Sales invoice (as per Rule 11) whenever Excisable Goods are removed from the premises or the place of manufacture.

In the normal course of business, customers (buyers) may return the goods because of any of the following reasons:

  • They were not as per their specifications

  • Due to inadequacy of space

  • Due to financial constraints

A manufacturer can avail CENVAT credit on the returned goods; track the return of finished goods and reflect their return in the appropriate Excise reports.

The Rule 16 Register has been provided to capture the details of returned goods and to track goods removed as such and goods that are sent for further processing (manufacturing).

As per the rule, though the goods returned are finished goods, for the limited purpose of availing CENVAT credit, they will be treated as raw material.

If the return is recorded as:

  • Scrap - no input credit can be availed on it. The amount equivalent to CENVAT will be accounted as expense

  • Usable quantity – on the quantity designated as usable, CENVAT credit can be claimed

To get started:

  • Create a new Voucher type  - Excise Credit Note

  • Record the return of goods with the Excise Credit Note

Sale of returned goods can be either:

o   When the returned goods are subjected to Process which does not amount to Manufacture and are Removed As Such

o   When the returned goods are subjected to Process which amounts to Manufacture
