Auto-population of e-invoice details into GSTR-1

by CA Shivam Jaiswal in GST

Auto-population of e-invoice details into GSTR-1

1. Certain notified taxpayers have been issuing invoices after obtaining Invoice Reference Number (IRN) from Invoice Registration Portal (IRP) (commonly referred as ‘e-invoices’). Details from the reported e-invoices are being auto-populated in respective tables of GSTR-1. Update on the same was last published on last published on 11/1/2021.

2. In the above update, it was informed that while pulling the e-invoice data into GST System, details of some invoices were not getting populated into GSTR-1. Troubleshooting has been done and efforts to correct this inadvertent gap are still on. Complete data pull is likely to take some more time.



Hence, taxpayers are hereby advised not to wait for the complete auto-population, and instead proceed with preparation and filing of GSTR-1 (by the due date), based on actual data as per their records.
