Overview of GSTR 2A Reconciliation in Marg ERP Software

  • GSTR 2A is meant for inward supplies or purchases i.e. the summary would be generated or the user can view the tax details for whatever purchases that has been done
  • On the purchase of a product, it acts as a sale for the party which purchased it and that party is required to show data of sales and supplies made in GSTR 1
  • All those details will get auto-populated and displayed month-wise on GST Portal and get auto-populated in GSTR 2A 
  • In Marg ERP Software, the user can easily reconcile GSTR 2A without logging in to the GST portal frequently and download the purchase bills in order to match them in the software
  • The user can also check that the sales uploaded by the party and the purchases displayed to the user in GST Portal are matched or not 

The Process to Enable API Access in GST Portal

  • Firstly, the user needs to enable API Access in GST Portal
  • Go to www.gst.gov.in and click on Login

Fig. 1.2 Process to Login to GST Portal

Fig. 1.3 Process to Login to GST Portal

  • Click on ‘My Profile’ by visiting on the top right side of GST Portal

  • Then select ‘Duration’.

Suppose, if the user selects 6 hours and click on ‘Confirm’. Then while reconciling GSTR 2A, an OTP will be received on the registered mobile number which will be valid for only 6 hours i.e. the user can download as many JSON files in 6 hours.

And after 6 hours, when the user visits again to reconcile then OTP needs to be provided again in order to download JSON file. 

Similarly, if the user selects 30 days then the user can download as many JSON files in 30 days. And again after 30 days, the user needs to provide an OTP again in order to download the JSON file

  • For now, the user will select the duration (30 Days) as per the requirement and then click on ‘Confirm’.
