1. Tally Con­nec­tor by ClearTax

Im­port­ing ac­count­ing data from Tally to GST net­work will no longer be a trou­ble for busi­nesses, with the launch of Tally Con­nec­tor by ClearTax. Pre­vi­ously, busi­nesses us­ing Tally had to man­u­ally down­load the ac­count­ing data from Tally and up­load it to the GSTN to file their re­turns. In case of er­rors in data, the en­tire process of pre­par­ing, down­load­ing and up­load­ing had to be re-done. With the ad­vent of Tally Con­nec­tor that takes all of three min­utes to in­stall, busi­nesses can im­port Tally data, with a sin­gle click. Fur­ther­more, avail­able free of cost, Tally Con­nec­tor helps users rec­tify any er­rors in­stantly, hence mak­ing the process seam­less and time-ef­fi­cient. Once the data is in ClearTax, data val­i­da­tion and GST re­turn fil­ing is su­per easy and can be done within min­utes, re­duc­ing both time and ef­fort spent.

2. Ex­cel For­mat by GSTN

Traders and busi­nesses can up­load sales data on GST por­tal with the help of an off­line Ex­cel for­mat, launched by the Goods and Ser­vices Tax Net­work. The off­line Ex­cel tem­plate has eight work­sheets, mak­ing col­lat­ing all in­voices easy for tax­pay­ers. The tem­plate is avail­able at GST com­mon por­tal. Fur­ther­more, the GSTN will re­lease an off­line tool on July 15, which will im­port data from Ex­cel tem­plate and gen­er­ate Jave Script Ob­ject No­ta­tion (JSON). Busi­nesses and traders will have to up­load the JSON file on GST por­tal, in or­der to com­plete the com­pli­ance process.
