Accounting Sales Commission and 
Deducting TDS [TDS] in Tally.ERP9

Example: ABC Company sells the goods to partners on a condition that, on each sale Rs. 100 will be paid as sales commission. To account sales commission separate expense entry is not booked in Journal but directly a credit note is raised in favour of the partner (to reduce party outstandings) and TDS is deducted on commission.
