MIS Reports are reports required by the management to assess the performance of the organization and allow for faster decision-making.
You can view the following types of MIS Reports in TallyPrime:
Accounting Reports: To obtain information on the financial position, operational performance and economic activities of the business.
Financial Reports: To determine the financial condition of an organisation as required by shareholders, creditors and government units.
Inventory Reports: To manage the Inventory effectively since the actual status of stock items is obtained.
Management Control Reports: To utilise budgets, cost centre reports, scenario reports etc. for controlling activities.
1. Cost Centre Reports
Cost Centre Reports are primarily performance reports that give a different perspective to transactions.
Ensure the option Enable 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 Summary .
1. Go to Gateway of Tally > Display More Reports > Statements of Accounts > Cost centres > Category Summary .
2. Ratio Analysis Reports
Ratio analysis is a powerful tool for financial analysis. A meaningful analysis of a financial statement is made possible by the use of ratios.
Ratios are a set of figures compared with another set. The comparison gives an understanding of the financial position of a business unit. There are a number of ratios which can be computed from a single set of financial statements. The ratios to be computed depend on the purpose for which these ratios are required. A single ratio may sometimes give some information, but to make a comprehensive analysis, a set of inter-related ratios are required to be analysed.
The Ratio Analysis Report is divided into two parts, Principal Groups and Principal Ratios. The Principal Groups are the key figures that give perspective to the ratios. Principal Ratios relate two pieces of financial data to obtain a comparison that is meaningful.
You can view this:
Go to Gateway of Tally > Ratio Analysis .
The Ratio Analysis screen is displayed as shown below:
Principal Groups and key figures
The principal groups and key figures in TallyPrime are detailed in this topic.
Working Capital : The Net Working Capital is calculated by subtracting Current Liabilities from Current Assets. Financial Analysts often consider the total Current Assets as the Working Capital. This serves as a measure of how far the firm is protected from liquidity problems.
Cash in Hand and Bank Balances : This data presents another perspective on the liquidity position.
Sundry Debtors (due till today) : The list of all the debtors and the total debts due as on the date of the statement, are displayed.
Sundry Creditors (due till today) : The list of all the creditors and the total credits due as on the date of the statement are displayed.
Sales and Purchase Accounts : The Sales and Purchase Accounts, which collate the trading activity for the period, are displayed.
Stock in Hand : This field displays the stock in hand as on the date of the report and together with Cash and Bank Balances and Debtors, completes the Current Assets aspect of the Working Capital.
Nett Profit : This is derived from the Profit & Loss Account and is the profit after direct and indirect expenses.
Wkg. Capital Turnover (Sales Accounts/Working Capital) : This is an activity or efficiency ratio that shows the number of times the working capital has been rolled over during a particular period. It depicts how effectively the firm is using its working capital.
Inventory Turnover (Sales Accounts/Closing Stock) : This is an activity or efficiency ratio that shows the number of times the stock has been rolled over during the period of the report. It depicts how effectively the firm is using its inventories.
3. Cash Flow Reports
Cash Flow is the inflow and outflow of cash during an accounting period.
A cash flow statement concentrates on the transactions that have a direct impact on cash. It deals with the inflow and outflow of cash between two Balance Sheet dates. That is, it explains the changes in cash position between the two periods. Here the term cash stands for cash and bank balances.
Cash flow statements can also be used as receipts and payments statement. This is particularly useful for businesses such as Non Profit Organizations where receipts and payments statements need to be generated.

4. Funds Flow Statement Reports
A Fund Flow statement is a report, which explains the movement of funds during an accounting period.
This statement consists of two parts
Sources of funds
Application of funds
The difference between the two shows the net change in the working capital during the period. Only those transactions that affect the net working capital of the firm, find place in this statement.
The Fund Flow statement is a supplement to the two principal financial statements. While supplementing the position statement, it describes the sources from which additional fund were derived and for which these funds were used. The transactions, which increase working capital, are sources of funds and the transactions, which decrease working capital, are application of funds.

They exist only till the specified date and are effective only when they are included in reports like the Balance Sheet. These are used in interim reporting in the course of the financial year where accruals are to be reported. These accruals are usually short term and are cleared in the subsequent period.
