How to record Accounts without Inventory in Tally, Illustrated

Tally Accounting Software is designed to meet the requirements of the business people. In some business cases we don’t need to record the Inventory related transactions, and don’t need to maintain the Stock Register. For instance, auditors will not handle the Physical Inventory they leave it on the owner’s shoulders as it is not mandatory for them in respect with the Statutory Filling of Accounts. They simply take the Opening and Closing Inventory figures for auditing. Hence, they record all the Accounting Transactions except inventory. And Tally supports it.
