  • Commercial invoice:

    Tally generates a commercial invoice when requested. A commercial invoice is a document issued to an international buyer providing the proof of the product sold like the description of the product, quantity, price, terms of sale, date of sale and other relevant information.

  • Certificate of Quality:

    Tally can also generate the certificate of quality for you. Certificate of quality (COQ) is mandatory in some countries. As the name suggests it is a proof that the goods sold with this certificate are of a certain standard. These certificates are sometimes issued by a third party quality control agency that issues this certificate only after checking the goods by certain standards. To have a certificate of quality is a good practice as it instils trust in the seller.

  • Warranty Certificate:

    Warranty Certificate is a proof of the validity of the warranty of goods. It is issued by the seller to the buyer with information regarding the start and end date of warranty, the terms and conditions of the warranty, geographical coverage, transferability, claiming process, repair or replacement and every other detail pertaining to the warranty of the goods being sold. Tally generates this warranty certificate exactly how the exports business requires it.

  • Bill of Exchange:

    A Bill of Exchange (BOE) is a financial instrument which is a means of payment. It is a legal document that ensures timely and secure payment as per the pre-decided terms of trade. The Bill of Exchange typically follows a few steps before the actual transaction. The steps include - creation of the BOE, presentation to the importer, acceptance and negotiation, payment and settlement, after sale risk and security. The segments of a bill of exchange is not always fixed and has to be customised as per the country of the buyer. Tally provides this BOE as and when requested.

  • Declaration

    There are different types of declarations as per the regulating bodies of different countries. Tally generates declaration for export and thus you can easily comply with the required format of declaration. This helps you stay focussed on business rather than worrying about compliance.

This cover letter too can be generated in Tally.

  • Performa Invoice

    A performa invoice is an invoice that is sent to the buyer before the actual transaction; it is a preliminary document that states the quotation of the goods, the description and many other details just like the bill of exchange. It is similar to a BOE but it cannot be used as a replacement for a BOE. This performa invoice can also be generated in Tally.
