E-Way Bill Report
Way bill is a special type of bill which is mandatory to be created before any movement of goods worth 50,000 INR or more. The way bill number has to be kept handy during checks on the road (if any).

GST (Goods and Services Tax) was formally introduced on 1st July 2019 and replaced as many as 16 taxes in India. In fact it’s the most popular indirect taxation in India right now.
Tally allows preparation of various types of GST reports like GSTR-1, GSTR-2, GSTR-3B related reports. GSTR-1 report in Tally is equivalent to the GSTR-1 form. It makes life easier for the user when filing returns.
Such GST reports generally help fulfill the following needs :
- Lists out all GSTR-1 transactions
- Displays transactions ineligible for returns
- Shows non-participating transactions
- Lists out all Tally serial number-wise details of figures as mentioned in GSTR-1
In the event of mismatches of discrepancies cropping up, the user can take care of them before filing GST returns. This way, Tally assists its users in correct return filings.

Ratio analysis is the comparison of specific financial entities a business. Ratio analysis helps to evaluate issues with a business, as well as highlight the financial standing during a given time. Liquidity, profitability, efficacy of operations etc. are well highlighted by ratio analysis.
This is especially useful to external analysts such as the auditors. This is because their main source of financial know-how about an organization is nothing but their updated financial statements.
