Accounting of Expenses and Deducting TDS Later [TDS] in Tally.ERP9

It is always expected that, the deductor should deduct the tax in the same invoice in which the expenses are accounted. But in some cases, deductor may follow the procedure of accounting only expenses on the receipt of bills and later, deduct applicable tax on all such accounted expenses in one invoice.

Example: ABC Company received bills for Rs. 1,50,000( Bill No: 850 dated 10-4-2009) and Rs. 1,25,000 (Bill No: 881 dated 14-04-2009) from Pheonix Agencies towards Advertising Services provided.
