This option is suggested if you don’t have much invoices file in the system. It will be much easier and fastest way if you don’t have many invoices. Let’s discuss the Tables and the data to be filled and how.

Step 8:

When you click and proceed the further. The table will open and there will be some blank boxes for filling in the information. The boxes of grey color are the boxes which are self-populated.

After filling all the details in the boxes, please save the information by clicking on the button “Save”. And enter the next invoice just like this.


Step 9:

After filling the information of B2B invoices, the next table is of B2C(large). In this table, those invoices are filled in which the amount exceeds 2.5 Lakhs and the supply is of inter-state nature. 


In B2C(large) invoices are generated on the unregistered person which means, GSTIN no. should not be required. So, in this table place of supply, Invoice no., Invoice Date, Total Invoice value and the taxable value in front of taxable rate should be entered. After filling all the details, click on the button “SAVE” and proceed as further. When you have filled all the details and invoices then click on the button “BACK” to reach back to the pages of the tables.



Step 10:

When both tables of invoices are filled, there is the third table for the Credit notes and Debit notes. Table-9B is for the Credit/Debit notes issued by the registered person only. 

In this table the basic details of the person who is issuing credit/debit note to/from to you(registered person). It contains the GSTIN, Debit/credit note no., Debit/Credit note date, Original Invoice no., note type(Credit note or Debit note) Value of the note(Inclusive of tax if any), type of supply and taxable value in the front of the tax rate applicable to the original invoice. 

After entering all the mandatory fields please save the details before going back.

The same step is to be followed for the credit/debit notes issued to/from the unregistered dealer. Click on table 9B – Debit/Credit note(Unregistered).

Step 12:

Table-6 is of entering/filling the details of export invoices which are zero-rated supply in GST regime. This table is made for goods as well as services, so don’t get confused to see the boxes of “Port Code ” and “Shipping Bill No./Bill of export”. These two boxes are not mandatory if you are in doing of export of services. 

In this table the basic details should be filled like:- Invoice no., Invoice Date, Port code, Shipping Bill No./Bill of export, Total invoice value, GST payment(with tax or without tax) and if the export is with payment of tax then the taxable amount in front of the tax rate. 

You can only export without payment of tax when LUT has been issued to you from the department. If you don’t have the LUT, then you should pay Tax and made the exports with payments with taxes. 

Be careful while filing this table because if there is any small difference in the details filled in this table and the data with the customs, it may result in the delay of your refunds. Whether the refund is of tax paid during the export or ITC availed for the export.


Step 13:

After filling all the invoices the Table starts which is provided by the government to rectify or amend our mistakes while filing the last returns. For amendment, Table-9 is given and this table is further distributed in the total of five different tables. Let us discuss the first table. Table-9A Amended B2B invoices, this table is specifically made for amending the  B2B invoices only. 

Click on the 9C-Amended B2B invoices —– Enter the financial year and GST invoice no. which you wanted to amend(The invoice should be entered as B2b Invoice in previous returns).——- Click the button “Amend Invoice”.

A page will appear with the details of the invoice you wanted to amend. You can amend the GSTIN, enter a new invoice no. and date, place of supply, Total invoice value, taxable and tax rate by changing the row accordingly.


Step 14:

The same procedure is to be followed further for amendments in all tables. After B2B invoice in Table-9A Amended B2C(large) Invoices. Click on the table to proceed. 

In this table, you can also change the invoice no. and date, place of supply, total invoice value, taxable value, and tax rate. But amending does not mean that you can delete or over wright the mistakes old data will stay in the database of GST portal.  


Step 15:

Table-9A Amended Export invoices are to amend the export details filed in previous returns. Click on the table and enter the invoice no. you wanted to amend it. This amendment is most useful to the exporters because according to the GST department the shipping bill was wrongly filed or not filed in the previous returns. Because of that, the refund was stuck in the process. 

This table can amend those invoices and help you to get your refund as quickly as possible for export. The port code and shipping bill are not required in the case of services. The rest of the details should be filled as per the requirement or as you wanted to amend. Enter the details and click on the button”SAVE”.

This table is to fill if you are receiving the advance for the supplies and charging the GST on it. But there is no compulsion to charge GST on the receipt of advance. 



Step 19:

One of the most important tables was Table-12 for HSN wise summary of outward supplies. In this table, you have to fill in the details according to the HSN codes issued by the government. The one important thing to determine is to make sure, that the HSN codes should not be repeated while filing. The system won’t accepts the details.  The same HSN code can be only used if the quantity is different.

So, please combine the quantity and sales value of the products having same quantity measurement and HSN code.

You should first select the year, month and original place of supply. When you enter these the table filled with the previous data will appear on. You can change the details in that table and save the data.


Step 22:
