Creating Employee Groups in Tally.ERP 9

Employees can be classified based on function, department, location, cadre/designation and various other parameters using Employee Groups.

In Tally.ERP 9, salary structures can be defined at the Employee Group level itself. For example, you can create the salary structure for a whole department i.e., Marketing, R&D, Sales, Accounts etc.
