How to Enter Multiple Address for Company and Ledger?

Did you know Tally provide you multiple address for company and ledger accounts as per your requirements. Do you work out of one office and have a godown located in another place altogether? Is it a problem to constantly co-ordinate with your suppliers to send the invoice to your office address, and the material directly to your godown? Or are you facing this problem where your suppliers have multiple addresses and want you to send the stock, reports, invoices etc. to different locations each time.


Tally.ERP 9 provides you a simple and easy solution, by enabling you to save an unlimited number of addresses for any ledger, or even your own company, with personalised names for each. This will help in faster identification of the addresses, for example in case a company has multiple branches in the same city, then each can be identified with a unique name set by you. For example, you may want to use your Branch Office address on invoices for a particular customer, while the godown address on the Purchase Order for your supplier. Further, while printing any report, you can select the address as required; say the Head Office in some and the Registered Office in some. 

Let us see how multiple addresses can be saved in Tally.ERP 9.
