    hello, I know how to book Fixed Assets Purchased but in cases where fixed asset is manufactured in house, What should be treatment of it? How can we show inventory bought and consumed for the purpose of creating Fixed Asset and how can we link that consumption of Inventory with the Fixed asset account created for that purpose.

    In Nutshell, I want to show fixed asset manufactured in the company factory by using Raw Material specifically purchased for production of Fixes Asset. Can it be possible in Tally ERP 9?

    • You can book in house manufacturing of fixed asset this way.

      Create a ledger in the name of Fixed asset.for example Furniture Account
      Book all expense like purchase of raw materials,wages and other expense related to the production in the same ledger.
      The total of fixed asset ( furniture) account will be treated as the cost Fixed asset.

    I have a question regarding what should be the voucher for a downpayment purchase of a fixed asset

    For e.g A cement company purchasing a computer (fixed asset ) with 100 % down payment.

    Journal Entry of the same will be

    Fixed Asset A/c Dr
    To Cash/Bank A/c

    So will this come under Payment Voucher whilst purchasing on downpayment

    For a credit purchase the Voucher is Journal but as i said i was a bit confused as to what will the voucher for downpayment be either in cash or through cheque

  • Uvaise

    Dear, as we are not receiving corresponding item (fixed asset) or invoice from supplier at the time of down payment, we must debit the supplier and credit the cash.

    (Payment voucher)
    ABC ltd A/c Dr
    To Cash A/c

    Once you received your invoice you can record transaction for fixed asset

    Fixed asset A/c Dr
    To ABC ltd A/c

    Consider, you will get only cash/cheque receipt from your supplier when you pay them downpayment.

    And this you can record in payment voucher as well as journel
