You may find yourself in a situation where you are issued a refund from a supplier for part of a supplier receipt and you need to record this in Tally. This is usually caused by part of the purchase being returned or more commonly, overpaying suppliers. To record this you need to create a credit note and apply a payment to it.
Creating the Credit Note
The first step to creating a credit note is to go to original purchase you need to refund. This can be found in the Purchases area. Once you are here you will need to press copy at the bottom of the receipt, then select copy to new receipt. You should now have an exact copy of the receipt linked to the same supplier. To turn this into a credit note you need to press edit on each line item of the receipt. Here you need to set the Net Amount to a negative amount by putting a ‘-‘ in front of the figure. You will also need to adjust the net amount figure so that it matches the same amount that you received back. Essentially making a part credit note of the original purchase.
Showing the money back in your bank account
All that is left to do is show the money back into your account like it shows on your bank statement. You need to record a payment in the Payments section as a negative amount for the account the money was refunded to by clicking Add Payment and entering the details here >Save. This has now been accounted for correctly.
