GSTR-1 Report in TallyPrime

Filing your GSTR-1 might sound like a daunting task, but TallyPrime is here to make your journey as easy as possible. You can use the GSTR-1 report in TallyPrime to easily upload your details on the portal.

The best part is that you don’t have to do anything out of the ordinary. You only have to record your GST transactions in TallyPrime, as usual, and the relevant details will be reflected seamlessly in the GSTR-1 report. After that, you can just verify and export the details, and upload them to the portal. As easy as that! All your GST data from TallyPrime will appear seamlessly on the portal.

What is GSTR-1

GSTR-1 is a tax return that has to be filed by a regular dealer on the GSTN portal. If you are a regular dealer, then you have to upload the details of all your outward supplies (or sales transactions) every month or quarter, as per the turnover from the previous Financial Year.

Here’s how TallyPrime can make your GSTR-1 journey easier:

Assured compliance

Form GSTR-1 contains different sections or tables for recording many types of supplies, such as B2B/B2C, credit/debit notes, nil-rated supplies, and so on. And in order to file GSTR-1, it is important that you upload the details of your GST sales in the relevant tables or sections on the portal. However, with TallyPrime at your fingertips, you do not have to go to any pains to record your GST data separately!

TallyPrime’s GSTR-1 report is perfectly mapped to the tables of GSTR-1 form, and all your GST sales will be automatically assigned to the relevant tables. Once your details are up and running in TallyPrime, you can rest assured that these details will be seamlessly reflected on the portal as well. Refer to the Return View section to know more.

Easy, intuitive design

We understand that GST compliance can become tricky due to the sheer variety of transactions and amendments involved. You might be worried if you will be able to find all the transactions that require your attention. However, the GSTR-1 report has got you covered. All the sections that require your action will be highlighted in amber colour. You only have to ensure that the voucher count of such transactions is zero, before signing your return.

You also might be trying to figure out what would be the best way to maintain your uploaded transactions, or what would happen if you modify or override GST details in your uploaded transactions. However, with TallyPrime, you don’t have to think too far ahead. The beauty of the GSTR-1 report is that it will keep evolving according to the nature of your activities.

For example, whenever you export your transactions, it will appear in a new section called No Action Required. Similarly, if you make any modifications in the exported transaction, a relevant section will appear to capture the updated transactions. This will save your time, as you don’t have to go out of your way to save or mark any transactions separately. The details in GSTR-1 will keep evolving according to your actions. Refer to the Total Vouchers section to know more.

What’s more, you have the option to configure the GST Return Effective Date for a transaction. For some reason, if you are unable to export a certain transaction to the portal in the current month, then you can easily set the GST Return Effective Date for the next month or quarter, based on your feasibility. This transaction will appear under the Moved to Other Return Periods sub-section. If you open GSTR-1 for the next month, you will find the transaction under a Other Periods column, which will be added automatically based on the GST Return Effective Date.

Unmatched performance

GST transactions are typically filled with so many details, and the more transactions you have, the bulkier your data might get. However, with TallyPrime, you do not have to worry about the size of your data. The GSTR-1 report will always be instantly available, that is, as soon as you record a GST invoice, the return information will be reflected in the reports in real-time. Even when you have thousands of GST transactions, GSTR-1 will load the details in a jiffy. Moreover, you will also be able to move across reports or drill down to the transactions at great speed.

Multi-GSTIN support

If your business consists of multiple GST registrations/GSTINs, then the GSTR-1 report provides you with an amazing view of your combined GST details and activities across registrations. You also have the flexibility to view GSTR-1 for only one registration, from any of your companies. You can view and resolve your uncertain transactions or export your return, for all GSTINs combined or for one GSTIN at a time, based on your business practice.

Easy preparation for filing

In addition to assured compliance, easy design, and great speed, there are so many other features that will make your experience with GSTR-1 even better.

The GSTR-1 report comes with an easy, intuitive classification of all GST-related errors. You can drill down from the Uncertain Transactions section to view such uncertain details and correct them easily. Even if you have hundreds or thousands of transactions, it will be pretty easy to find and fix a particular error. This will ensure that you have a smooth filing experience.

What’s more, while verifying uncertain transactions, you will also have the option to accept a few transactions details as valid. However, before finalising your return, you also have the option to cross-check such transactions to ensure that the details are indeed correct. Using the Transactions Accepted as Valid report, you can easily go through all such transactions and undo any changes, if needed. 

Once your GSTR-1 details are final, you can easily export them to a JSON, CSV, or MS Excel file, and sign your return. In this way, you can easily keep a tab on your finalised return and prevent any tampering. If your signed transactions are modified, then you can easily spot them in Uncertain Transactions.

Handling amendments

Even after you have filed your return, TallyPrime will continue to look after your filed transactions. If there are any changes or amendments in the filed transactions or summaries, then you will be able to conveniently track them under the relevant section under Return View. For example, if any of your B2B transactions are altered, then you can find them in the Amended B2B Invoices – 9A section. Similarly, you can find your amended B2C summary under Amendment B2C (Small) Invoices – 10. Subsequently, you can easily upload these details on the portal and file an amendment of the returns.

View Your GST Details in GSTR-1 Report

We understand how important it is to balance the compliance and the business aspects of your transactions. Hence, TallyPrime comes with a GSTR-1 report that is tailored to meet your many requirements in one place. You can not only view your key GST figures as per the portal but also view how these numbers are reflected in your books. 

Moreover, if there are any errors or uncertainties in your GST details, you will be able to easily identify them in TallyPrime, and also resolve them without any fuss. 

GSTR-1 has the following sections, which will address your specific needs with great simplicity.

Header | View Company Information

The header section in GSTR-1 captures some of your key information up front, such as the Company name, GST Registration, Period, Status of returns (Signed/Not Signed), and so on. If required, you can change one or more of these necessary details, and the contents of the reports will be updated accordingly.

What’s more, if your business consists of multiple GST registrations/GSTINs, then the GSTR-1 report provides you with an amazing view of your combined GST details and activities across registrations. However, TallyPrime also provides you with the flexibility to view GSTR-1 for only one registration, from any of your companies.

View GSTR-1 for a specific GSTIN

Press F3 (Company/Tax Registration) and select the required company or registration from the list.

The GSTR-1 report will then open for the selected registration.

Based on your requirements, you can even set a particular registration as the default using the Save View feature, so that GSTR-1 will open the details of your desired registration every time.

Total Vouchers | View Statistics & Verify Details

The Total Vouchers section gives you a bird’s eye view of the key numbers and details across your GST transactions. You will get a clear picture of the number of transactions included in the return, the transactions that are ready for export, the transactions where corrections are needed, and so on. You can drill down from each of these sub-sections to take a closer look at the transaction details.

The best part is that the Total Vouchers section evolves according to your actions in certain transactions. For example, after you export your transactions for GSTR-1 filing, the transactions will automatically appear in a new sub-section called No action Required. Similarly, if you are modifying certain GST details in a transaction that has been already exported, then it will be automatically listed under Modified in Books After Export.

What’s more, you also have the option to see if any actions are pending in other return periods. Depending on your choice (set in Basis of Values), the Total Vouchers section will include an extra column (such as Vouchers with Pending Actions of Earlier or Future Periods), which will give you a clear view of the vouchers pending in different periods. 

The Total Vouchers section will display the following sections, based on your actions and transactions.

However, with TallyPrime you don’t have to go to any hassles.

  • Other voucher: The count of memorandum and reversing journal vouchers.

All the transaction types are not displayed by default. Based on the voucher type used and the exclusions done by you, the relevant categories appear with the voucher count.

  • Uncertain Transactions (Corrections needed): Displays the count of all vouchers with insufficient GST-related information. You can correct exceptions in the vouchers before exporting GST returns.

    • Press Ctrl+B (Basis of Values).
    • Press Enter on Allow tax difference up to and specify the value in the field.
    • Press Esc to return.
