These include Accounting, Finance Management, Receivables/Payables, Inventory Accounting, Inventory Management, BoM-based manufacturing inventory, multi-location/multi-currency/multi- unit handling, Budgets and Controls, Cost and Profit Centres, Job Costing, POS, Group Company consolidations, Statutory Taxes (Excise, VAT, CST, TDS, TCS, FBT, etc), Payroll Accounting, and other major and minor capabilities. It has served as an ERP for small enterprises over the past 12 years.
With the introduction of Remote Access, Remote Authentication, Support Centre, Central Administration and Account Management inherently supported in the product, it can be formally labelled as Tally.ERP 9. With this capability, it is possible that the owner or an authorized user will be able to access all the reports and information from a remote location. With each forthcoming release subsequent to Tally.ERP 9 Release 3, additional capabilities will be delivered to cater to large business enterprises.
