In the 24th GST Council Meeting which was held on 16th December 2017, the GST Council decided to launch the e-Way bill on 1st February 2018, instead of April 2018. The post e-Way Bill Generation for Transactions Recorded in Tally.ERP 9 appeared first on GST (Goods and Services Tax) – India – Tally Solutions.

In this article, we’ll look at why e-Way bills are necessary and how to generate e-Way bills for invoices recorded in Tally.EPR 9. 

Note: Upgrade to Tally.ERP 9 Release 6.4 is necessary to manage e-Way bills conveniently.

A] Why Do You Need To Create e-Way Bills?

An e-Way Bill is mandatory for intra-state movement of goods worth more than ₹50,000. Some have also made it mandatory for inter-state movement of goods.

The e-Way Bill is generated through an e-Way Bill portal, wherein you or the transporter have to upload certain mandatory details. Following this, the portal generates an e-Way Bill that has a unique e-Way Bill Number (EBN). The transporter has to carry a copy of this EBN when transporting goods (intra-state/inter-state) along with the invoice.

B] How to Create e-Way Bill in Tally?

When you are creating invoices, Tally.ERP 9 helps you to generate e-Way bills for transactions recorded by capturing the necessary details.

To generate e-Way Bills in Tally.ERP 9, you need to follow a simple one-step process;

Step 1: Go to F11 > F3 > GST Details.

Step 2: In GST Details, you need to make the following settings:

  • Select the transaction amount limit above which you can generate e-Way Bills.
  • Choose the applicable date from when you want to start generating e-Way Bills.
  • Select Inter or Intra-state movements for which you need to generate e-Way Bills.

According to the settings, appropriate transactions will be made to generate e-Way Bills by Tally.ERP 9.

C] How to Generate e-Way Bills Faster For Multiple Invoices With Tally?

Once you have entered the details in an invoice, based on the settings mentioned in (part B), a subform will be opened in Tally.ERP 9. Here, you can add any additional transportation details.

  • Following this, you can export the data in a JSON file, which can be uploaded on the e-Way Bill Portal, thereby generating your e-Way Bill.
  • This e-Way Bill will include the transportation details and the e-Way Bill Number (EBN).
  • You can then type this EBN with its corresponding invoice and take a print.

D] How to Generate e-way Bills using Tally for Purchases and Other Transactions?

One of the best things about using Tally.ERP 9 is that you can generate e-Way bill from Tally on behalf of your supplier or transporter. Here, you can also generate e-Way Bills for other types of transactions like receipt notes, debit notes (used for purchase returns) and credit notes (used for sales returns)

E] How to Generate Consolidated e-Way Bills With Tally?

Tally.ERP 9 is an advanced software that allows you to generate consolidated e-Way Bills for a group of invoices with the same vehicle number, place of supply, State and mode of transport.

All you have to do is: Generate the JSON file > upload it to the e-Way Bill Portal > generate a consolidated e-Way Bill.

However, while a consolidated e-Way Bill makes things easier for transporters, ensure that you generate individual e-way Bills for each invoice, as it is a prerequisite condition in the portal.

#Easily Switch Between the e-Way Bill Portal and Your Tally.ERP 9 System

Depending on your preference, you can first generate e-Way Bills in the e-Way Bill portal and then update the invoice details in your Tally.ERP 9.

Or, you can first create your invoice in Tally, add additional details in the invoice and create a JSON file. This JSON file, as mentioned above, can be then uploaded on the e-Way Bill Portal.
