Tally.ERP 9 rel 1.6 : Latest release of Tally with lots of new features

Tally has launched its new release of Tally.ERP 9. Now release 1.6 of Tally.ERP 9 is available for download. Few path breaking features has been added in this release. One of the main and attractive feature added is of Quick setup wizard. Another interesting feature which user can find interesting is mass email option from Tally itself. A button of Stock query has also been put while creating stock vouchers etc, so that user can check the status of a particular item before doing any transaction. Other features include Multiple page invoice printing for excise manufacturers and excise dealers. Consolidated e-TDS returns can also be obtained for group companies. In addition to this some general enhancements and modifications related to data synchronization has also been done by the company.

Quick setup wizard:
This is pretty interesting to know that now you have got something like this in Tally also. This setup wizard would do automatic configuration for statutory masters. This tool would be a boon for new users who have faced problems while configuring statutory master. Be noted that you can get correct statutory reports only when you have got your masters configured correct. At present following statutory msters can be configured by Tally Quick Setup Wizard
  • Excise for Dealer
  • Excise for Manufacturer
  • Tax collection at source (TCS)
  • Tax deduction at source (TDS)
  • Value added Tax (VAT)
Mass Emailing:
This is also one of the interesting tools which tally has included in Tally.ERP9 rel 1.6. Now you can send reminders, outstanding statements, confirmation of accounts and Payslips to all selective employees. A special email exception report to view and correct the email address that were not entered or correctly entered while creating masters.

Stock Query:
A separate button has been created S: Stock Query to display the Stock Query Report for an item during the Voucher Creation/Alteration screen. This report will help the user to check the Stock position and other information related to the specific Item while creating/altering a Voucher/Invoice/Order or during selection of an Item.

Enhancements:

The synchronization process would be now 70% faster. One way synchronisation ca be done from client to server. While synchronisation you can filter voucher type also.

Statutory version:
Statutory version 100 is available with this release. This version can do setting for all the statutory changes done till now. Almost all state has done modification in statutory and tally can be updated this way.

Should I upgrade:
The next logical though which comes is, should upgrade to Tally.ERp 9 rel. 1.6. Here is the answer. This release has all the reasons to be upgraded, new features, latest update etc. But there is a catch. One should have their Tally.net subscription updated. If your Tall.ERP 9 is showing Tally.Net subscription expired then you have to subscribe for it and pay. Otherwise your tally would become educational if you proceed with latest release.

Reader can get full details of changes in release notes.

Some Nice Sites to get help on Tally


I have to admit now, we the users of Tally software have so many people online to help us. For past few days I was busy else where and could not write about Tally. During this period I wrote for Quick Online Tips a blog which offers nice articles to help people on general computer related problems and some really cool tricks. As handling people's response about Free Tally was beyond my control via emails, I choose to narrate the whole process to activate Tally there. ApniTally readers whom I couldn't respond via mail can activate their copy of free Tally by following procedure described in this post. During this period a site webneetech also approached me and publish my interview on its site.

Today I was scratching my mind for one article on Tally I thought lets see whats going on internet related to Tally. I always keep on tab on what is going on internet related to Tally. New blogs which are currently on Tally, or new partner sites of Tally which are offering its services etc I never fail to miss.
I have written about it previously also, and some helping sites, but this time to my surprise I found really good stuff which i can't stop myself from telling my readers.

Tallynine.com : Developed By Mahender Rana, this site has some really nice articles on Tally. Well readable this site is developed on wordpress. I have never worked on wordpress and found it dificult, but i don't know how Mahender thought of wordpress instead of blogger. He is a technical guy and some of the articles are with in depth knowledge.

Tally9book.blogspot.com : Another nice site which is quite readble and having good number of articles. Site is developed by a businessman Sanjay Satpathy. He has also developed www.tally9book.com which is having basic knowledge about Tally which may be helpful to new users. If he keeps on writing then his site would be doing good business also.

Accounting Education: Developed by Mr. Vinod Kumar from HP, this site has small small articles. But I envy his frequency of writing. Readers can get basic knowledge articles also. Site has nice design and is on blogger platform.

Tally9.info : This is the site of a Tally Partner and is maintained by Ashwin. The site frequency is low but articles are informative. User can get help good help there. I wish he should continue helping

These are few sites which I could search for readers to take a look. I hope more and more people would come forward. I have mentioned only those site which provides free help to its readers and many partners of tally are running their sites but they are purely business sites. Readers can evaluate and take the help and suggest any others sites which can be helpful for readers and skipped by me.
