Introduction

The Marked Vouchers feature which is available in the latest release of Tally.ERP 9, makes it very easy for both business owners and tax consultants to update their books with changed vouchers conveniently, at any point in time.

In this blog post, we will explain how Marked Vouchers feature works and how it proves to be an extremely useful capability in different business scenarios.

What is marked vouchers feature

The Marked Vouchers in Tally.ERP9 keeps track of all vouchers which are either newly added or get modified.  Whether you are a tax consultant or a business owner, at any instance, you can export only the list of these vouchers as an XML file and share it with each other. The other user has to import the file into his Tally.ERP 9 and the data gets updated with only the Marked Vouchers.

To enable Marked Vouchers in your Tally.ERP 9, select Yes to Mark changed vouchers in F11 > Accounting Features.

We will now take you through few of the business scenarios in which Marked Vouchers has proven to be an extremely useful capability.

Scenario 1
If you are a business owner, then you might have encountered a tricky situation when your customer wants you to make some changes in few of the invoices after you have already shared data with your tax consultant for filing.  It is quite likely that your tax consultant might have also already amended few of the invoices for filing purpose.

By using the Marked Vouchers in Tally.ERP9, you can share only the list of modified invoices with your tax consultant.

Scenario 2
You are a tax consultant. You may need to correct some of the data shared by your client while preparing it for filing GST returns. How will you communicate these changes to your client? Your client cannot overwrite these changes since he would have added few more transactions in the books as part of day-to-day business activities.

Simply export the list of Marked Vouchers and share with your client, and he can import the same into his Tally.ERP 9 and update the books.

Imagine what this situation might be like without the Marked Vouchers capability? Your client would have to manually identify modified vouchers in his books and re-enter the information.

Your Article can easily share the changes made with you by exporting the Marked Vouchers from Tally.ERP9 and you can easily accommodate these changes and update the data within no time.
