How to Create Service Items as Inventory in TallyPrime

Service items are services that your company provides, such as maintenance or labor. They are not associated with an Inventory. Normally in TallyPrime we will create a Service ledger under indirect income and record as an accounting entry, but if we want to show the numbers of quantity billed we cannot do this if we are using service item as ledgers. In many businesses there is a requirement to bill the service items and it should not show as negative stock in Stock Summary.


Note: When we create Service items as Stock Items it shows negative in Stock Closing in Stock Summary.
