Highlights

Enhanced features for managing e-Way Bills

o As per the latest directive from GST Council, e-Way Bills are required for moving taxable goods worth more than Rs. 50,000. Release 6.4.1 gives you the flexibility to choose between invoice value, taxable and exempt goods value or taxable goods value as part of the threshold amount of Rs. 50,000.

o Release 6.4.1 also shows which details are missing in the invoice for the purpose of generating e-Way Bills.

File GSTR-4 as per latest changes : As per the changes made by GSTN on April 17th, Tally.ERP 9 supports the latest changes made in GSTR-4 Offline Tool Version 2.2.

Flexibility to manage differences in GSTR-1 transactions : As per the latest changes made by GSTN, tax amounts can be of any value (The condition of tax amount = taxable value*tax rate is removed).

o If tax amounts are not equal to the computed tax amounts (taxable value*rate), Release 6.4.1 treats such transactions as Mismatches by default. You can resolve these differences by adjusting amounts before filing GSTR-1.

o If you don't prefer to individually adjust the mismatches in tax amounts, Release 6.4.1 will do it for you. Under GSTR-1, press F12 > Allow tax differences up to and choose your preferred option.

Automatic rounding off invoice amounts : Create a Round off Ledger and select Invoice Roundin g as the type of ledger. While creating invoice when you select this ledger, Release 6.4.1 will auto calculate the difference value. For example: If the invoice value is Rs. 99.94, then upon choosing the Round off Ledger, Release 6.4.1 allocates Re. 0.06 to this ledger and the invoice value gets converted to Rs.100.

Supports latest changes in Payroll as per Finance Bill 2018 : You can now compute salaries of your employees as per the latest budgetary changes made in Finance Bill 2018. Release 6.4.1 supports the reintroduction of standard deduction, new tax slabs for health and education cess, changes in medical reimbursement and transport allowance, and benefits for senior citizens.
