How to get Highest Compliance rating in GST and Maintain it in Easy Steps.

GST Compliance Rating, How to maintain it
What is a compliance rating in GST ? It is a rating provided by GSTN to each business on this basis of his behavior on the portal. It is based on many factors which includes your discipline in meeting the deadlines set by GSTN, furnishing minute details of invoice for credit utilized by you, payment of taxes etc and many more. To sum up which ever compliances are expected by the GSTN from you of them

how many are you fulfilling.   

The beauty of this rating is that even smallest businessman can get the highest rating as well as bigger business house may get lower rating. All depends on your dealings done on GSTN portal. 
One of the biggest reason of introduction of compliance rating in GST was to safeguard the businessmen from fraudulent practices. As your rating is visible to all the parties your are dealing with it would warn them whenever your regularity is disturbed. It would work both way. You too would get warning on reducing rating of your vendors. 

There is a fear among businessmen about maintenance of this rating. And that fear is that only business with enough resources can maintain his rating but his is not true. Everyone can maintain it. Here are some tips to maintain your rating to the highest.

Follow the Strict Discipline:

You should never miss any deadline of GSTN portal, you should be extra vigilant about it. For example the first deadline comes on every 10th of the month to upload your GSRT-1. This is most vital. After that the 15th and then the 20th of the same month. These should be never missed. 
To resolve this issue you can depute a dedicated person for this as you may not get time every time every month on these specific dates.

Proper Invoice matching:

This is another area which can reduce your rating. You should fill all details of your invoices which you have to upload in GSRT-1. The amount figure in invoice should exact match of all your invoices, All inventory details should be perfectly entered. Mismatch of invoices would decrease your rating.

Don't deal with lower rating Dealers:

Dealers who miss their deadlines would eventually decrease your rating too. As they would not file their taxes on time then your claim for input would also disrupt and it would decrease your rating. As it is clear in GST that you would get your claim only when your seller has paid tax, if he misses then your claims would also go false,  which would decrease your rating.

Use proper GST compliant software:

This could be your weakest link. GST compliant software is a must. You should opt for that software who can do matching for you, who can help you prepare error free returns for you. Even if you make errors it should be able to rectify them before final submission. It should assist you in paying your taxes too. 
GSTN portal has one more link which is of GSP, i.e. GST Suvidha Provider. Initially GSTN portal would give you a utility to validate your data but later on you would need a GSP would would filter your data before sending it to GSTN portal. So your application software (ASP) should be well harmonized with your GSP.   It should seamlessly connect with GSTN portal.

You have purchased a Tally single user or multi user and now successfully using it. But due to one or more reason your tally turns educational ! What would you do? What are the steps you should take to again activate the license. This article would tell you what ideally you should do.
How to reactivate or shift your Tally License

Tally licensing has evolved during all these years with every new version. Now in Tally.ERP 9 licensing has become very simple and easy. While working on Tally the license is needed to be activated again. This may be due to :-
  • License file is corrupted,
  • There is some virus in computer
  • The computer got crashed 
  • You got another system which is new and tally is to be shifted there.
What ever may be the reason to reactivate the license the process involves following steps.

Before doing any thing be sure that :-
  • You have taken the backup of data properly.
  • You should have access to your id and password or your registered email id.
  • Access to internet.

The reactivation process
If you are using the Tally on same machine and tally is already installed then you need to go to reactivate license option of Tally on the front screen and enter the Tally.Net id and password.
If nothing goes wrong then license would be activated, otherwise watch the error message carefully. If it says license already activated please surrender first then you have to follow the below mentioned process.

If you are getting the error message that license already activated please surrender first then, you have to surrender the license first. This may be due to the fact that you are either changing the machine and you have to surrendered the Tally license on the earlier machine. Or you may not having the access to old machine because it is crashed and now you are activating the license after formatting it. But as this fact is not known to Tally, it is considering that you are activating one license on two machines simultaneously. So you need to surrender the license first and then reactivate it.
So the question is how to surrender the license. Simply go to control center on the top menu bar by pressing the shortcut key Ctrl+K.

Enter the Tally.Net id and password you would be shown following screen.

Go to license management option and you would see your licensing information. At the last column you would see the status which would be active.

Now select it with mouse and press space bar you would get both options as Active and Surrender. Select surrender and press Enter. You license is surrendered.
Now get out of Control Center and again go to license menu in the starting and reactivate license. Now you would not get any error. 

What if you don't know Tally.Net password ?
There is no need to worry if you don't know your Tally.Net password. The id is you email id on which you have registered the Tally and the password can be reset very easily. 
After pressing Ctrl+K  for control center just press F5 . It is for resetting your Tally.Net password. Enter your email id which you have registered with Tally. Now press enter and Tally would send reset link to your mail address. Just open your email id and there you would get a mail from Tally.Net open the mail click on the link and type the new password two times and your password is reset.

What if you don't know your Tally.Net id ? 
This is an interesting question which can be solved by just common sense. You may be having too many email ids and you don't know which one you have used for Tally.Net. So one simplest way is to check each email id and try to search for 'Tally.Net' and if this is your email id then you must be getting mail from Tally solutions. Ant the title of the mail would be Tally.Net. If not then check the next one. 

Second trick is just enter your email ids in the Tally screen where you reset the password after pressing F5 as mentioned above. If your email id is wrong it would say please enter the correct email id. Find the correct email id. 

What more problems you can get while dealing with your license? If you are facing any problem which i have not mentioned then explain it in the comment box I would try to resolve it.

Follow these steps to know the performance of all your customers
Display --> Account Books --> Group Summery 
Here you can select the group Sundry Debtors as your group which would list all your customers. If you have grouped your customers further then in F12 configuration of this screen you can set Expand to all level to yes
Here noteworthy thing is that you can set payment terms with each customer by setting different credit periods and different credit limits. Later on you can check how they are performing on those conditions.

Track how you have rewarded your most valuable customer
To retain a valuable customer, he should be treated with free gifts, extra credit period, cash discounts etc. A business can decide whom to give discounts and whom not to. A business can decide that the most valuable customer should get high credit facility based on his performance. As discussed earlier you can set credit limits for your customer so change credit limits of valuable customers. If you give free items as discounts then you can track how much free items have you given to your customer.
In a way you can track how much free quantities you have given to your valuable customer. How this can be done ?
Tally can help you to track the free items given to customer in two ways. One way is to see it party wise and other is to see it item wise. You can see the free items given by you across party lines as well as item wise. 
Display --> Inventory books --> Movement Analysis --> Ledger Analysis  
would tell you all items given by you to that particular party. Further drill down to each item would let you know How much free items are given by you and how many times it is given.
Display --> Inventory books --> Movement Analysis --> Stock Item Analysis 
would tell you how much of each item has been given to which parties.

This way you can retain your customer and identify your most valuable customer. Readers can share their experiences in comment box. 


Three things to Avoid in New Year / New Financial Year in Tally ERP 9

Friends I wish all Tally users a Happy and Prosperous New Year. Although for Accountants in India New year starts from April 1 when we have to begin new books. But there are people who start their book from Jan 1st. This is the case for companies whose parent companies are out of India.
I have seen many Japanese companies who start their financial year form Jan 1st as their parent companies start their financial year on same date in Japan. 

For all those Tally users who would change their period on Jan 1st Here are three tips which they should avoid while doing accounting in Tally. This is applicable to all Indian users from April 1st so they can read carefully and apply it on April 1st when they begin new year.
Three things to avoid in New Year New Financial Year in Tally erp 9
Three things to avoid in New Financial Year in Tally

Three Things to avoid on New year /New Financial Year. 

Create new Company in Tally
Many people start New financial year by creating New company as they think they should start afresh. This step has many drawbacks
First, they have to create all the masters.
Second, they have to post the opening balances if not now then after some time.
Third, since they have not finished their entries of last year they don't have any clear picture of books of account.

So, over all its extra effort and waste of time to create separate company. So, what is the right step?
The right step is to continue in the same company by just extending the financial period at Gateway of Tally. Just press Alt + F2 and change the period. And continue doing the entries.  

Changing the period from Company Info

This is the biggest blunder that some of the Tally users commit on New year or at the beginning of New financial year. What they feel is that as they have defined the financial period in Company Info while creating company so they should change the next year there so that they can do further accounting. 
This is actually a big blunder which users should avoid as this step would render their data of previous year inaccessible. It would cause the company loss of data of previous financial year. 

What is the right step then ?
The right step is to change period of the company in gateway of Tally. If you change the period once it would automatically accept the entries in new period. You can switch to previous year period by simply changing the period again. 

Proceeding without changing the voucher Numbering

This mistake is committed by many users who have started special numbering for vouchers. e.g. sales Invoice number starts like 14-15/104 by entering advance configuration in some vouchers masters. So what is wrong in this?
The wrong part is that these numbering is on yearly basis. If you have started a series like 14-15/invoice number then on jan 1st or on April 1st the numbering would start again from One and the sales invoice number would be like this only 14-15/001 on next year. It would duplicate the invoice number. It would further duplicate the references in bill wise bill details. This would lead to confusion and wrong referencing specially in bill wise bill. 
So what should be done?
Avoid entering vouchers before editing the series of voucher numbers in voucher master. Start the new series first e.g. 15-16/ and then start doing entries in New financial year. 

Hope you would find this information useful. Happy New Year and Happy New Financial Year Too. Share your thoughts on your New Year Experiences.

What is your New Year Resolutions for Tally in 2015

Friends New year is again round the corner. We are all determined to celebrate this new year too with great fan and fervor.  Like last year we would pass new resolutions for the coming year. No matter how early we break our new resolutions but this is for sure that we would make new one this year too.
We are all too firm this year to not to break our new year resolutions. Rest all depends of God's will and our circumstances.

Like we all do, some of my friends would resolve to start morning walk from this year and some would resolve to quit smoking. 

Many would repeat their last years unfulfilled resolutions, but have you ever thought what resolutions would you make this year regarding Tally.

As we all know we pass new year resolution because these are the things which we really want to do but are hard to follow. They are actually good and are beneficial for us. Like wise Tally is also beneficial for us and we all know that our business, job, profitability all depends on that. So we should pass a resolutions this year regarding Tally. 
What is your New Year Resolutions for Tally
What is your new year Resolution for Tally? 

So My question is  what resolutions would you pass this New Year related to Tally? Have you given a thought over it? If no then why not? Give a thought this year on Tally. When you would start thinking you would find that there are many possibilities which can be explored.  

What can be your New year Resolutions?

For a Businessman
Possibilities can vary from person to person. If you are a businessman then first resolutions you can pass on Tally is that I would go one level up in using Tally. In other words if you are using Tally just for debit and credit entries then you  can resolve to use it a little bit further. Your Goal can be I would start my Invoicing in Tally
Another resolutions can be I would start using Inventory with Accounts from this year
Another resolution can be I would automate my cheque printing via Tally. No more Manual cheque writing form this New Year.

Here is an example which I usually face. I am a service provider. While I am with my client I cannot  decide how much work I have to do at client end or how much time I have to spend with him. If the time is much higher then expected then I have to bill him accordingly. If I am at client end then I have to go back and prepare the bill and again visit or have to send it to the customer after that he would make payments. But with remote access of my Tally I can generate bill using client's machine and Tally and get a print out also using his printer. It would save me lots of efforts and time. It would also make payments quicker.
