Auto Interest Calculation in Tally


                    Tally accounting software provides Auto Interest Calculation features.  If you are using tally and want to post interest voucher without any calculation of interest.  It requires some setting in tally.

1)       Open tally and select company in which you want to set interest calculation.

2)       Press "V" Button for selecting "Accounting Voucher" in Gateway of Tally.

3)       Press F11 and set as under :-
                "Activate Interest Calculation"               = Yes
                 "(use Advanced parameters)"              = Yes
                 "Use Debit/Credit Notes"                    = Yes
                 "Use Invoice Mode for Credit Notes" =Yes
                 "Use Invoice Mode for Debit Notes" =Yes

4)       Now, from Gateway of Tally,  Press  Account Information > Voucher Type > Alter >Credit Notes>  Set name of  Class to  "Interest ".  I mean to say  Type Name of class = Interest. (It has been found that some users create new Voucher Type instead of Voucher Class and not got success in setting)

5)      Now set  "Use Class for Interest Accounting" =  Yes  and save with Control+ A

6)      Finally, Open Account Master of Debtor or Creditor or Unsecured Loan in which you want to calculate interest.
          From Gateway of Tally > Account  Info >   Ledger > Alter > Select Ledger Name.
          Now set " Activate Interest Calculation ? = Yes  and set  percentage of Interest  as per direction.

7)       To Calculate interest , Enter a Credit Note voucher  and select Date with  F2  for which you want to calculation Interest.  Press Control+F8 and select  Class = Interest.   Now select ledger  amount of interest will be calculated automatically.
