Getting Ready for the New Financial Year with TallyPrime: A Streamlined Transition

As a business owner and Tally Solutions at Bezzie Infotech, I’m thrilled to welcome you to a brand new financial year! While excitement fills the air, the transition to recording transactions in the new year can feel like a daunting task, especially for those using Tally Prime. But fear not, because in this blog post, we’ll navigate the process together, ensuring a smooth and efficient journey.

Understanding Your Options:
Before we dive into the specifics, it’s crucial to understand the various approaches available for handling your data in the new financial year within Tally Prime. Here are three prevalent methods, each with its own advantages and considerations:

1. Splitting Company Data:

This method involves creating a separate data file for the new financial year, effectively dividing your existing company data.


  • Reduced data size: By splitting, you minimize the overall file size, potentially improving software performance and backup efficiency.
  • Secure old data: The old data remains readily accessible in a separate file, facilitating historical analysis or reference.

Steps to Split Company Data:

  1. Go to Gateway of Tally > F3: Cmp Info > Split Company Data.
  2. Select the company you want to split.
  3. Enter the desired split date (typically the first day of the new year).
  4. Press Enter to split the data.


  • Future analysis complexity: Merging data from multiple years for in-depth analysis might become more complex compared to maintaining a single file. 

2. Creating New Company  

This method involves establishing a new company in Tally Prime specifically for the new financial year.


  • Fresh start: Starting with a clean slate offers a sense of organization and facilitates easier tracking of financial performance in the new year.
  • Simplified record management: Maintaining separate files for different years can provide a clearer picture of each year’s financial performance.

Steps to Create a New Company:

  1. Go to Gateway of Tally > F3: Cmp Info > Create Company.
  2. Enter the first day of the new year as the Financial year begins from date.
  3. Enter a new company name and other details.
  4. Create the necessary masters (accounts, cost centers, etc.) and begin recording transactions.

3.Importing Opening Balances (Advanced):
This method involves exporting opening balances from your existing company data and importing them into the newly created company. This approach is recommended for experienced Tally users comfortable with data import functionalities.

Restarting Voucher Numbering for a Fresh Start:
Regardless of the data handling method you choose, it’s essential to restart your voucher numbering for the new financial year. This ensures a clean and organized record of transactions moving forward.

Steps to Restart Voucher Numbering:

  1. Go to Gateway of Tally > Alt+F2 (F2: Period).
  2. Enter the first day of the new financial year as the period start date.
  3. Press Enter.
  4. Go to Gateway of Tally > Create/Alter > Voucher Type (or Alt+G > Create Master/Alter Master > Voucher Type).
  5. Select the voucher type you want to reset numbering for.
  6. Enter the desired starting voucher number in the Starting Number field.
  7. Repeat steps 5 and 6 for all voucher types you utilize.

By understanding these options and following the outlined steps, you can confidently transition your data and streamline your financial management in Tally Prime for the new year. Remember, choosing the ideal approach depends on your specific needs and preferences.

Finally, the most important thing is to choose the option that works best for you and your business. If you’re still unsure, don’t hesitate to reach out to our friendly team at Bezzie Infotech. We’re always happy to help!
