Saving data at GST system
Once verified, the data can be saved at GST system. Click on ‘Save Data to GSTN’ to save generated GSTR1 draft onto the GST system. You can also click on ‘Discard the Draft’ to reject the GSTR1 draft.
The GST session has to be active for saving data at GSTN. To activate/reactive the session you need to go to GSTN connection settings as described earlier. The status of Save request can be checked
If there are any issues encountered during Save, these need to be corrected by doing correction in data. So if there any error from GSTN then you can view that error related to particular invoice in the view section.
The draft needs to be discarded to continue uploading of more invoices or deleting invoices.
There are some upper limits prescribed while sending data to GST system. Hence in one Saverequest approximately 30,000 invoices /data can be sent. In case there are large number of invoices, multiple Save requests need to be initiated. These requests should be sequential i.e. only when one request is complete, the next can be initiated.
GSTR 1 Summary
There are two summaries displayed
- IRIS – Created based on the data which is prepared for saving
- GSTN – Fetched from GST portal based on the data that is available /saved at GST system.
You can verify these details and if there are any differences, check if any invoices have been rejected because of some errors. The GSTN summary can be downloaded in CSV format.
In addition to the overall summary, counter-party wise summary is also available for the sections
- B2B – Invoices with registered dealers
- CDN – Credit and Debit notes pertaining to registered dealers
View invoice has a column for GSTN status which will get updated once invoices are saved at GSTN.
