1. Maintain Multiple Godowns
Set this option to Yes, if you have more than one stock point/storage Locations/ Godowns, and you want to track stock movement in these Locations. You can create any number of Stock Locations/Godowns. The Godowns/Locations option is displayed in Gateway of Tally.ERP > Inventory Info. Menu only if you set this option to Yes. You will be able to know your stocks at each location as well as assign stock movement to one or more locations during voucher entry.
2. Maintain Stock Categories
Maintain Stock Categories :This offers parallel category of stocks. For example : you are dealing with different companies that sell Floppy Disk, such Sony, Amkette, and Moserbaer. Here you can specify the entire stock item in the stock category under Floppy.
Name of the Item Categories
Sony 1.44 MB Floppy
Amkette 1.44 MB Floppy

3. Maintain Batch-Wise Details
Maintain Batch-wise details : This features is required if you want to maintain the Stock item batch-wise and you can also maintain the expiry date of the products. For example, Medicine, Food Products, etc.
Name of the Item Batch No. Mfg. Date Expiry Date
Sony 1.44 MB Se/150/08 01-04-2011
Note: Batches should be used where they are small in number and remain constant. Do not use the batch option for tracking of lots through manufacturing processes. If that is done, you will soon have a large number of batches that are not deleted. You will not be able to assign costs to particular lots, as may be the intention.
Set Expiry Dates for Batches
Set this option to Yes, if you want to set expiry dates for the batches. This displays an additional field Use Expiry Dates in the Stock Item Creation screen.
This is useful for businesses that deal in goods that have expiry dates like medicines, food and other perishables. During voucher entry, date of manufacture of the product by default takes the date of the voucher. This date can be changed, but not to a date later than the voucher date. Expiry date cannot be a date prior to the voucher date.
4. Use different Actual & Billed Quantity
Set this option to Yes, if you want to specify quantities, that are different from that delivered/ received, when invoicing.
For example, you have delivered goods but some of them are in disagreement. So, your customer wants to be invoiced only for the undisputed quantity. He/She might consider the rest later and would then like to be invoiced. On the other hand, the rest might be so bad that it is useless even for you to take it back. Hence, you can record the fact while raising the invoice without altering the delivery note or passing a rejection entry.
