Article tries to give possible solution in cases where EWB portal displays invalid HSN code due to clash of 6/8 digits regulation which has come into effect from 01st April 2021.
With the introduction of minimum 6 or 8 digit HSN/ SAC Codes on the invoices, now there arises an issue as how many digits to be mentioned while generating E Way Bills.
A. Mandatory Task :
1. CBIC has made 6 Digit HSN codes mandatory for taxpayers whose turnover is above 5 crores from 1st April 2021.
B. Issue Faced Now :
1. While generating E-way with HSN Code of 6 digits sometimes it shows invalid/wrongs HSN Code.
C. Possible Solution :
1. In such a case the taxpayer has to put 8 digit HSN Code because when you navigate to GST Portal under the tab Search – User Services, you will find HSN code search option.
2. When you put your HSN code there :-
a) If 6 digit HSN code comes, then you will able to generate E way bill with such 6 digit HSN code
b) If you find that there is no HSN code of 6 digits but HSN is only of 8 digit code there, then you need to put 8 digit HSN code only.
Two extra digits of Zero “00” need to be suffixed after the HSN so as to generate E way Bills
