FAQ-1 ( Interest Calculation):

How do I enter the Interest Receivable / Payable amounts into books?

  Or

  The interest report shows only the interest implications, since the interest amount receivable/payable are not being entered into the books. How can this be accounted for in Tally.ERP 9?

Answer

 

The interest amounts calculated in different ways are shown in the Interest Calculation Report. However, these have not been brought into books and they simply give you the interest implications. You must book them if you want them to be entered into the books.

 

Entering Calculated interest amount

 

The calculated interest amounts are entered using the Debit and Credit Notes with Voucher Classes.

 

The Debit notes are used for the Interest receivable while the Credit Notes are used for the Interest payable.

 

Interest is calculated on a Simple or Compound basis and separate voucher classes should be used for them.

 

Set-up Debit/Credit Note Classes for Interest entries

 

We will now discuss the set up of Debit Notes, since the Credit Notes behave in the same way (in the case of Interest payable).

 

  1. Assume you have raised an invoice to your debtor ‘M/s Blue Nile Stationeries for Rs.44,200 on 1st Feb 2009 and have given a Credit Days of 20, so the invoice would fall due on 21st Feb 2009. The Interest rate is set to 12% per 365-Day Year and is calculated Transaction-by-Transaction, as shown below:

(a) Simple Interest

(b) Compound Interest
