Uploading to IFF for QRMP Dealers

Question: As a business needing to file GST returns quarterly, I have opted for IFF (Invoice Furnishing Facility). How do I generate GSTR-1 that is compatible for IFF upload?

Answer:

What to do in first 2 months of the quarter?

After the end of the first and second months, upload B2B and CDNR tables under the IFF option on the portal.

  1. Open GSTR-1 in TallyPrime for the month, generate .csv files for B2B and CDNR.
  2. Using the GST returns offline tool version 3.0 (available at https://www.gst.gov.in/download/returns), select the option of quarterly filing and import the .csv files for B2B and CDNR.
  3. Generate JSON from the tool and upload to the GST portal under the IFF option.
    Invoices are furnished for the first and second months.

What to do in third month of the quarter?

  1. After the quarter is over, upload all tables except B2B and CDNR for the quarter, and B2B and CDNR tables for the last month of the quarter against GSTR-1 on the portal.
  2. Open GSTR-1 for the last month of the quarter, generate .csv files, import only B2B and CDNR tables to offline tool, generate JSON and upload against GSTR-1.
  3. Open GSTR-1 in TallyPrime for the quarter, generate .csv files, import all tables except B2B and CDNR to offline tool, generate JSON and upload against GSTR-1.
    GSTR-1 return is prepared for the quarter.
