Price Lists are useful for orders and invoices. An up-to-date price list helps in decision-making even at the lower levels of the organization and quickens the sales process. Tally.ERP 9 assists in creating quantity based pricing with complex discount structure. Price Lists are available only for inventory items and hence the feature is available only if inventory and invoicing are activated for the company.
You may require more than one price list, when you have different price structures/levels for different purposes viz., different groups of customers requiring different discounts or dealing in different products.
Once you have created Price Levels, the Price List option appears in the Inventory Info. menu. You can create a price list for a items falling under a group. You can create a quantity based, staggered pricing if required. Price lists in Tally.ERP 9 come with the capability to display historical details of rate and discounts for a stock item, captured from an existing price list for the stock item if any. Along with the cost price of the stock item, these details help in precisely defining the price of the stock items.
