GSTR-1 HSN Summary in TallyPrime as Per Return Format

This page answers all the frequently asked questions regarding the GSTR-1 HSN Summary in TallyPrime Release 2.0, which is as per the GSTR-1 Return Format. 

You will get answers to how and why the views of the HSN Summary in TallyPrime get displayed in a particular manner. 

Here are the questions and answers to those queries – 

1. I am unable to configure TallyPrime’s GSTR-1 report to view HSN/SAC or HSN/SAC with Description, or only with Description. How can I view the report with the same?

Answer 

Currently, filing GSTR-1 on the portal requires only HSN/SAC Code-wise.

Hence, there is no need to configure TallyPrime’s GSTR-1 report to view HSN/SAC or HSN/SAC with Description, or only with Description.

However, these views are available for your business need. You can drill down on HSN/SAC Summary from the GSTR-1 report in TallyPrime.

You can view the report based on your requirement and the information you have provided in the Stock Item, Stock Group, or Ledger.

Follow the steps given below.

  1. In HSN/SAC Summary, press Ctrl+H (Change View).
    The List of Views sub-screen appears.
  2. Select HSN/SAC, HSN/SAC and Description, and Description, as needed and press Enter.

The view of the report will change based on your selection.

You can also validate HSN/SAC information online in TallyPrime if you have upgraded to Release 2.0.

Note: For filing GSTR-1, it is not mandatory to enter Description corresponding to the HSN/SAC Code, as the field gets auto-populated on the portal on the basis of HSN/SAC Code provided by you.
However, if you have provided a Description along with the HSN/SAC Code in TallyPrime, then it will get uploaded on the portal when you file GSTR-1.
And if you have not provided a Description in TallyPrime, then the Description field will not get filled on the portal when you upload the JSON file.

2. In the HSN/SAC Summary of GSTR-1, I have used Change View to view the report with HSN/SAC only. However, I still see the Description column. Why is it so?

Answer 

This has been done purposefully to maintain consistency with what you see in the Offline Tool and on the Portal. Therefore, the Description column is retained in both HSN/ SAC and HSN/SAC and Description views.

However, the Description field will be filled only if you had entered the Description with HSN details in either Stock item, Stock Group, or Ledger.

3. When HSN/SAC Description was not enabled, I had an option to use the name of the Stock Item or Ledger as Description and export it. However, after upgrading to TallyPrime Release 2.0, if the Description is not provided, then the field remains blank. Why is it so?

Answer 

Previously, you used to file GSTR-1 HSN Summary Stock Item or Ledger-wise, which resulted in the repetition of HSN/SAC Codes. As per the latest format on the portal and offline tool, you need to file GSTR-1 HSN Summary HSN/SAC Code-wise. So, for example, if there are three Stock Items in the Invoice with a specific HSN Code, then you need to enter HSN Code and its relevant Description and not Stock Items or Ledgers.

Moreover, it is not mandatory to enter Description corresponding to the HSN/SAC Code, as the field gets auto populated on the portal on the basis of HSN/SAC Code provided by you.

However, if you have provided a Description along with the HSN/SAC Code, then it will get uploaded on the portal when you file GSTR-1.

And if you have not provided a Description in TallyPrime, then the Description field will not get filled on the portal when you upload the JSON file.

The column for description and details is retained in TallyPrime’s GSTR-1 report to keep the format similar to the one available on the offline tool and the portal.

If you have provided a description along with the HSN details in your Stock Item, Stock Group, or Ledger, then you will see it after drilling down on HSN/SAC Summary from the GSTR-1 report in TallyPrime.

You can view the report based on your requirement and the information you have provided in the Stock Item, Stock Group, or Ledger. You can then further configure the report to use Stock Item/Ledger name as the description.

Follow the steps given below.

  1. In HSN/SAC Summary, press Ctrl+H (Change View).
    The List of Views sub-screen appears.
  2. Select HSN/SAC, HSN/SAC and Description, and Description, as needed and press Enter.
  3. Press F12 (Configure) > set Use Stock Item/Ledger Name as Description for HSN/SAC to Yes.
  4. Press Ctrl+A to save the setting.
    As a result, you will view the report with the applied setting.

You can also validate HSN/SAC information online in TallyPrime if you have upgraded to Release 2.0.
