How to create Single or Multiple Ledgers in Tally ERP 9?


A Ledger is the place for a common Business Activities. We will record the similar activities under a Ledger by giving a name for it. Likewise in Tally.ERP 9 Accounting Software we can create a Ledger.

How to create Single or Multiple Ledgers in Tally.ERP 9 Accounting Software.
Ledger Creation methods in Tally.ERP 9

In manual Accounting we draw a T shaped format for recording the Debits on left and Credit on right side of the format. As well in this Tally.ERP 9 Accounting Software we need not to provide format, just we give a Name for it, configure the certain options, and Record the Transactions. And the remaining process will be by the software itself.

The Basic difference between the Manual Accounting and Computerized Accounting using Tally is that while creating ledger you need to provide the Head of Ledger Account, but where as in manual accounting you prepare all Ledgers based on the journal entries and that will be decided by the Accountant at the time of Final Accounts whether it comes under which Accounts Head.

Whenever you create a Company in Tally by default it creates two ledgers first one is Cash Ledger, and the second one is Profit & Loss A/c Ledger. All the other ledgers are to be created by the user only.

In order to create a Ledger you need the Ledger Name and Head of the Accounts Group under which it needs to be set. Open Tally.ERP 9 Software and load a company where you want to create a ledger.

  1. From Gateway of Tally screen select Accounts Info under Masters,
  2. And select Ledgers in the Accounts Info. menu.

And here we can create ledgers in two different ways

Single Ledger Creation in Tally.ERP 9

Using this method the user can create one and only ledger at a time. Here he is allowed to configure all the features like Interest Calculation, Address, Cost Centers, Statutory Information etc.,

  1. Just select Create option under Single Ledger in the Ledgers menu.
  2. In the Ledger Creation screen you need to give a Name for the Ledger, and under which Group Head it should be kept either in Direct Expenses, Bank Accounts, or Fixed Assets. And the remaining things are optional.
  3. Accept the screen to save the changes.

Multiple Ledgers Creation in Tally.ERP 9

In the above method we were allowed to create only one ledger at a time. But for fast data entry purpose Tally has given second step for multiple ledgers creation. In the Multi Ledger Creation screen we are allowed to enter only Opening Balance of the Ledger. For providing additional settings like Statutory Information you need to Alter the Ledger using Ledger Alteration screen only after you have created the ledgers.

  1. Just select Create option under Multiple Ledgers in the Ledgers menu.
  2. In the Multi Ledger Creation screen you can give the Name of the ledger and set Group under which you are creating the ledger, and Opening Balance if any.
  3. Accept the screen to save the changes.

And this is how we can create a Ledger in Tally.ERP 9 using the Ledger Creation screen for single ledger creation or Multi Ledger Creation screen for creating more than a single ledger at a time.
