Validate GSTIN/UIN and HSN/SAC Online in TallyPrime

The information related to a Party’s GSTIN/UIN is a vital part of transactions recorded for the Party. On the other hand, HSN/SAC details are important to identify items, goods, or services in a transaction, as applicable. Furthermore, if your business has a turnover exceeding Rs. 5 Crore in the previous financial year, then you need to furnish 4, 6, or 8 digit HSN codes for Stock Items as per new mandate under Notification 78/2020 issued by the GST authority. Additionally, you need to provide accurate descript for Stock Items in the Invoice. So, it is mandatory to enter the correct information related to GSTIN/UIN and HSN/SAC code in transactions. The entry of the authentic information in the transaction will ensure seamlessness in filing returns and claiming Input Tax Credit, if applicable. To ensure that the information in transactions is authentic, you must validate GSTIN/UIN and HSN/SAC.

TallyPrime Release 2.0 onwards, you can validate GSTIN/UIN and HSN/SAC information online from within TallyPrime. Furthermore, TallyPrime also facilitates quick online validation of GSTIN/UIN information for multiple parties and HSN/SAC information for multiple Stock Items in bulk.

Online GSTIN/UIN Validation in TallyPrime

As mentioned earlier, entry of incorrect or invalid GSTIN/UIN information can lead to problems in filing returns or claiming Input Tax Credit (ITC). Furthermore, it may also cause obstacles in generating e-Invoices and e-Way Bills. So, you will need to validate the information. Moreover, there can be many other scenarios in which you will want to validate the GSTIN and UIN information of a party with whom you are doing business. 

In this section:

Reasons to validate GSTIN/UIN Info online in TallyPrime

You will need to validate UIN or GSTIN for various reasons. 

Authenticity of GSTIN/UIN information

GSTIN validation will help you validate the information like the name of the company and mailing address of a Party entered in a Party ledger.

Verify GSTIN on hand-written invoice

When you receive a hand-written invoice from a vendor, you will want to validate the information provided by the party, thereby avoiding the consequences of incorrect information in the Invoice.

Avoid business with fraudulent vendors

GSTIN validation also helps in avoiding business with deceptive vendors who might be using fake GSTIN.

Status of GSTIN

You will get to know if the status of a GSTIN is active or inactive.

Status of e-Way Bill

Through GSTIN validation in TallyPrime, you will also get to know if the Party is blocked from performing e-Way Bill activities. 

Identify manual errors in GSTIN information

It may be possible that there were some manual mistakes committed while entering GST number and other information related to GSTIN/UIN in the Party ledger. When you validate GSTIN/UIN Info for such Parties, the information will not be found as the portal will not be able to retrieve data. Thereafter, you can enter the correct GST number of the Party in the ledger so that you can validate other GSTIN/UIN info using TallyPrime. 

TallyPrime facilitates quick online validation of GSTIN and UIN related information. You can validate either for single party and also for multiple parties in bulk in TallyPrime.
