In Tally, you can enter pre-opening expenses for your restaurant as capital expenditures. Create separate ledger accounts for each type of expense under the fixed assets category. Record the transactions in the appropriate voucher type (e.g., Payment Voucher, Journal Voucher) and allocate expenses to specific assets if needed.
Let's say you have incurred the following pre-opening expenses for your restaurant:
- Tiles - Rs. 10,000
- Painting - Rs. 5,000
- Plumbing - Rs. 8,000
- Electric wiring - Rs. 12,000
- Mason work - Rs. 7,000
- Repair and maintenance - Rs. 6,000
- Renovation - Rs. 15,000
To record these expenses in Tally, you can create ledger accounts for each expense under the fixed assets category, such as "Pre-opening Expenses - Tiles," "Pre-opening Expenses - Painting," and so on.
Next, you can enter the transactions using the appropriate voucher type. For example, if you made a payment for plumbing expenses, you can use the Payment Voucher to record the transaction. Enter the amount of Rs. 8,000 under the "Pre-opening Expenses - Plumbing" ledger account.
Repeat this process for each expense, allocating them to the respective ledger accounts. These expenses will be treated as capital expenditures and will appear on the asset side of your financial statements.
