Cost Centre and Cost Category in TallyERP9


Cost Centre

A cost centre is any unit of an organisation to which transactions (generally, revenue) can be allocated. When only costs or expenses are allocated to these units, they are referred to as Cost Centres. 

Transactions are allocated to cost centres. This enables accounting all transactions for that particular cost centre.  You can view the cost centre break up of each transaction as well as the details of  transactions for each Cost Centre.

Some examples of Cost Centres are:

Examples of cost centres:

1.  Departments of an Organisation, e.g., Finance, Manufacturing, Marketing, etc.

2.  Products of a company, e.g., Tally ess 4.5, Tally eis 5.4,Tally 6.3, Tally ies 7.2 , Tally 9.0, Tally.ERP9 etc.

3.  Even individuals like, Salesman A, Salesman B, etc.

You can classify cost centres, just as you classify Group/Ledger accounts. You can have Primary Cost Centres and several levels of Cost Centres under each Primary Cost Centre.

Consider the following example.

  • Primary Cost Centres - Finance, Manufacturing, Marketing.

  • Under Marketing, classify the company's sales executives (Salesman A, Salesman B, Salesman C) as Cost Centres.

This will help you track a sales executive's performance, in terms of cost and revenue generated.

Allocate expenditure incurred on sales by the salesmen, as well as the sales generated by them, directly to their Cost Centres. The allocation is done at the time of voucher entry.

Cost Category

Cost categories are useful for organisations that require allocation of revenue and non-revenue items to parallel sets of cost centres means  a transaction to more than one set of cost centres.

For example,

>   Cost Centres such as Marketing, Finance and Manufacturing can now belong to a category - Departments.

>   The Salesmen A, B, and C can be Cost Centres under a Category - Executives.

4. Cost Centre Reports

Cost Centre Reports are primarily performance reports that give a different perspective to transactions.

Ensure the option Maintain cost centres is set to Yes in F11: Features .

Cost centre Break-up shows the ledger accounts that are used in vouchers, the cost centre they were allocated to, their total transaction values and the balance. If you consider only the revenue accounts, the Cost Centre break-up becomes the Profit or Loss statement of activities for the cost centre, and hence a powerful performance statement.

You can view cost centre vouchers in Cost Category Summary under Category
