Export GSTR-1 in JSON Format & Update Rate-wise HSN/SAC Summary

Published on: 18-07-2022

In the latest amendments announced for GSTR-1, a few changes have been introduced with respect to reporting of HSN/SAC Summary. The changes are given below:

  • The HSN/SAC needs to be reported rate-wise.
  • The total value of stock items/services corresponding to the HSN/SAC need not be reported.
  • The HSN/SAC needs to be reported in 4, 6 or 8 digits only.
  • The reporting of HSN/SAC needs to be, a minimum of 4 digits for companies having turnover of up to 5 Crores, and 6 digits if the turnover is above 5 Crores.

We will be supporting these changes in the upcoming releases of TallyPrime. Until then, we suggest that you follow these simple steps for reporting of HSN/SAC Summary in GSTR-1.

  1. Export the GSTR-1 report from TallyPrime in JSON format without including the HSN/SAC summary, and upload the JSON file to the portal.
  2. Export the HSN/SAC summary in MS Excel format from GST Annual Computation report. Add these details in the MS Excel template of the offline tool.
  3. Import the MS Excel template in the offline tool and generate the JSON file. Upload this JSON file to the portal.
