In Tally, voucher numbers are automatically set by default. They start from 1, 2 and so on.
In almost every business, voucher numbers are not used like 1, 2, 3 and so on. They are used with some words or are of greater digits such as 101 or A-101 or TAX-101 and so on.
So you need to change the configuration voucher numbers in Tally which are set by default. Changing default configuration of voucher numbers in Tally is easy and simple.
Follow the steps below one by one and you can easily change the voucher number configuration in Tally.
Changing Voucher Number Configuration in Tally
First of all from Gateway of Tally, go to Accounts Info.
From Accounts Info., go to Voucher Types as shown in the below picture.
From Voucher Types, go to Alter, because we want to edit the setup or configuration of voucher numbers in Tally.
Remember one thing, Alter is the option in Tally for whatever you want to edit in it.
After pressing Enter on Alter, you will see a list of Voucher Types. From that list select the voucher type in which you want to change the method of voucher numbering.
Please note that whatever the voucher type you select, the procedure is same for changing the method of voucher numbering Tally.
You will see a list like as show in the picture below.
In this post we are going to alter the Contra voucher type. As I said earlier, the procedure is same for all voucher types. You learn from one of them and you can apply that to every other voucher type.
As soon as you go to Contra, a Voucher Type Alteration Screen as shown in the picture below will come up.
I have boxed out the option of Method of Voucher Numbering.
Change it to Manual from Automatic and you can easily enter whatever you want to while entering the voucher.
But remember, you have only changed the Contra voucher type and you need to change this setting in every voucher type you want to use.
It will not take more than 5 seconds per voucher type once you understand the process.
This is how you change the default voucher numbering in Tally.
On an important note, there are many more options than just Manual when you change the method of voucher numbering in Tally.
