Adjustment of Normal Advances (received) Towards Service Bill [Service Tax] in Tally.ERP 9

In some cases, businesses receive advance from the customer and will account such advances without calculating the Service Tax. Later (after providing service) while raising the service bill, advance received will be adjusted towards the bill and balance will be displayed as pending for payment.

Tally.ERP 9 supports to adjust normal advances received (tax not calculated while accounting advances) form the customers towards the sales bill. The adjusted amount will be displayed in all the Service Tax reports as amount realised towards the service rendered.

Adjustment of Normal Advance received/paid towards service bill (Sales/Purchase) is supported in Tally.ERP 9 from Release 2.1.

Example: On 22-7-2012 ABC Company received Rs. 50,000 as advance from Innovative Works.

On 24-7-2012 ABC Company rendered Event Management Service for Rs. 1,25,000 to Innovative Works and while raising the bill adjusted advance of Rs.50,000.
