Tally.erp 9 one vital feature is exporting /generating e vat return for any state.
As now days most state government insist for e filling of vat return. First of all you should read my article on how to vat and excise in tally.erp 9
How to generate this e vat return for various state say Gujarat State, Rajasthan State, Punjab, Karnataka and so on.
One must sure that tally.erp 9 only can generate vat/e vat return for a state for which the accounts are being maintained and for this purpose one has first of all to set state name while creating a company then has to enable vat of applicable state.
if I have activated Gujarat state and make entry for sales/purchase then I can prepare reports for Rajasthan state !!!
so, this basic framework one must keep in mind
then the required thing to be done is to create all ledger accounts properly for input/output vat, cst ledger and purchase and sales ledger if there is a mistake in opening such account then the report may give a misleading picture
or try to search how to do vat entry properly by reading previous post whereby I have explained in detail along with the screen for opening various vat related ledger account
Once this had been done then go to
Click on Vat reports
go to e vat forms
clcik on e vat return /annexure as per your requirement
you will find a screen showing report generating
you must be sure that in your hard disk drive (in tally’s folder) there must be a copy of the required template
for e.g. for gujarat state the vat reutrn is required to be filled in VAT_RET_201_Monthly_new.xls
format so u have to visit your state vat department site from where u can download such templates to your tally folder only then u can export e vat return otherwise NOT!
So, Try now and let me know if you face any difficulty!
