In many cases, you may want to classify stock items which are similar in nature but are grouped under different Stock Groups. Tally.ERP 9 provides you a feature namely, Stock Categories, which allows parallel classification of stock items to separate categories besides grouping.
For example, you may group Television sets of different sizes based on their size viz., TV’s of 14
inches, 21 inches, 29 inches and so on. But however, if you require reports on, which brand sells
more. In such cases, you require parallel classification of stock items to stock categories viz., Sony, Panasonic, LG, Samsung, Philips, etc.
In Tally.ERP 9 you can create stock items and group under the respective groups and parallely
classify them under the respective Stock Categories. You could however, interchange the stock
category or stock group based on your convenience and reporting requirements.
