An e-Way Bill has to be carried along by a transporter when transporting goods worth more than Rs. 50,000. Some States have made e-Way Bills mandatory for intra-state movement of goods, while some have made it mandatory for inter-state movement of goods as well.
Tally.ERP 9 helps you in generating e-Way bills by capturing all the necessary details right at the time when you are creating invoices.
Below are some of the key capabilities of Tally.ERP 9 that help generate and manage e-Way Bills easily.
To start using Tally.ERP 9 to generate e-Way Bills, you have just one simple step : Go to F11 > F3 > GST Details.
In ‘GST Details,” you can quickly make the following settings:-
As per the settings, appropriate transactions will be made eligible for e-Way Bills by Tally.ERP 9.
As soon as you finish filling up details in an invoice, based on the criteria settings (as mentioned above), Tally.ERP 9 will open up a subform in which you can provide additional details of transportation. After this, you can export the data in a JSON file. This JSON file can be uploaded on the e-Way Bill Portal and you can generate your e-Way Bill. Along with transportation details, the Bill will also display the e-Way Bill Number (EBN). The EBN can be typed in its corresponding invoice, and you can take a print.
Tally.ERP 9 provides the flexibility to let you generate e-Way Bill for a single invoice or for multiple invoices together based on your business need.
If you generate JSON files individually for each invoice, you will have to upload them individually as well in the e-Way Bill portal to generate their corresponding e-Way Bills. However, you can generate a single JSON for multiple invoices and obtain a single e-Way Bill for all the invoices in one go.
You can generate e-Way Bills first in the e-Way Bill portal and then update the invoice details in your Tally.ERP 9. Or you can use Tally.ERP 9 to first create your invoice, provide additional details in the invoice at the same time and create a JSON file of the data. This JSON file can be uploaded on the e-Way Bill Portal to generate your e-way Bill. Based on your convenience, you can alter easily between the portal and Tally.ERP 9 to generate e-way Bills.
Depending on the business scenario, if your supplier or transporter is unable to generate e-Way Bills, you can do so on their behalf using Tally.ERP 9. You can generate e-Way Bills even for other types of transactions such as credit notes which are used for sales returns, for debit notes which are used for purchase returns and also for receipt notes.
When the place of supply, State, vehicle number, and mode of transport are same for a given set of invoices, you can group these invoices, generate JSON file, upload to the portal and generate a consolidated e-Way Bill. Before generating a consolidated JSON file for the invoices, make sure to generate e-way Bills individually for each invoice first which is a prerequisite condition in the portal. A consolidated e-Way Bill makes life easy for transporters.
