When you

in Vendor Payments, you can automate bringing that bill to Tally.

When doing so, you can also choose to automate mapping those bills to the ledgers present in Tally, as per the conditions they match. This is a one-time setting only.There are two ledgers you map your bills to:

  1. Set up the necessary ledgers and map the expenses and tax accordingly.
  2. When you bring a bill from RazorpayX, Tally maps that transaction to the respective ledger.
  3. You can manually change the mapping to a different ledger if necessary.

Suppose you run a clothing business and make the following payments from RazorpayX regularly:

  • To supplier who provides readymade clothing items.
  • To a different supplier who provides unstitched dress material.
  • To a logistics company that offers home delivery on all orders received.
  • To suppliers who provide housekeeping, canteen, packaging, sundry expenses and many other services.
  • Pay tax incurred on these transactions as per the relevant tax categories. And so on.

For all such cases and more, you can:

  • Create Expense Ledger. This maps the expenses you frequently incur.
  • Create Vendor Ledger. You collate a list of Vendors to whom you regularly make payments to.
  • Use Tax Ledger to map the tax paid and credited.

Now, map the expense to the vendor and vice versa in the Vendor Expense Mapping ledger. When moving the transactions to Tally, the ledgers automatically map the transaction to the expense incurred as per the vendor to whom you have made the payment.

Suppose Pankhuri Traders is one such supplier.

  • You incur Canteen Expenses regularly from them and make payments to them.
  • In such cases, you can map Canteen Expenses to Pankhuri Traders in your Tally ledger.

When you create an invoice in RazorpayX for Pankhuri Traders, and you sync the bill in Tally, the narration for the journal entry in Tally gets automatically updated to Canteen Expenses. This is because the vendor, Pankhuri Traders, is already mapped to Canteen Expenses.

You can also map one vendor to many expenses in the expense ledger.

  • Understand banking transactions from a business perspective
    • When you make payments using RazorpayX, you can use Payout Notes, Contact type and name, Payout Purpose, and more, to generate a banking narration.
    • When syncing to Tally, the banking narration can help to automate mapping the tax, vendor or expense entry to Tally when it matches with the ledger entry.
    • If many teams handle your vendor business and reconciliation, they can understand the transactions easily in this way.
  • Create context specific journal entries
    When the transactions are specific to context about when, how and why you have made the payment, you improve the narration of your journal entry automatically.
  • Automates the process
    When the invoice created for a specific vendor matches with the vendor's name in Vendor Expense mapping ledger, for example. The narration automatically syncs the invoice in Tally to the expense it is mapped to.
    Due to not manually making the entries, you save time and effort. You can verify, repeat and reduce errors easily.
  • One time process
    It is a one time process. Every time you select a type of expense or a specific vendor, the expense gets updated to match the mapping you have set. If necessary, you can still map the expense manually to a different expense.
