Do I need to go to Gateway of Tally to Load the previous Year Company for Comparison?
No, to compare the Company data in Statutory Audit tool, you can open the Previous Year Company either from the Statutory Audit Dashboard or from Schedule VI Balance Sheet Dashboard by pressing Ctrl+F3 and selecting the required company.

 We had changed the current period to 1-4-2009 to 31-3-2010 but it continues to display 1-4-2008 to 31-3-2009 as the current period in Gateway of Tally. What should I do?

 It is essential to change the period to the next financial year before recording the transactions. On recording a transaction for the period 1/4/2009 – 31/3/2010, Tally.ERP 9 will automatically change the period to current financial year beginning from 1/4/2009 to 31/3/2010. On loading the company next time Tally.ERP 9 will display the current financial year.

You can also shut the company and select the same company again. While selecting the company, the financial years of the company are displayed in the List of Companies

In case multiple companies are loaded and the previous company contains a different financial year, it is suggested to follow the steps shown below and disable the load companies on startup.

  • Go to Gateway of Tally > F12: Configure > Data Configuration.
  • In the Data Configuration screen and set Load Companies on Startup to Yes
  • In the Companies to preload on startup select the required company from the List of Companies displayed. 
Can we see the age wise details of outstanding bills? How?
