Automatic rounding is very useful feature in tally, automatic rounding off will helps to speed up sales and purchase transactions. apart from these two vouchers auto rounding can be used in voucher types like Credit note, Debit note, Delivery note, Receipt note etc.

How to treat round off in tally?

Rounding off is the adjusting of smaller fraction of amount (for eg: paisa) in to it’s nearest bigger value (for eg: Rupees).The rounding could be upward rounding, downward rounding or normal rounding.

Examples of rounding:

Rs 10.55 rounded off to Rs 11 (upward rounding)

Rs 10.55 rounded off to Rs 10 (downward rounding)

In accounting we can treat the rounding as income or expense. If round off ledger shows a debit balance it is an expense to the business, if it shows a credit balance it can be treated as income. Finally used in profit and loss account for profit calculation at the end of the financial year.

Hence create a round off ledger under indirect income or indirect expense is the normal procedure of treatment of round off in tally.
