The Goods and Service Tax Network (GSTN) has made available self-service functionality on GST Portal for those importers of goods, recipients of supplies from SEZ, and the Bill of Entry details, which didn’t auto-populate in GSTR-2A.
“To help importers of goods, and recipients of supplies from SEZ, search Bill of Entry details, which did not auto-populate in GSTR-2A, a self-service functionality has been made available on the GST Portal that can be used to search such records in GST System, and fetch the missing records from ICEGATE,” the GSTN said.
It is noteworthy, it usually takes 2 days (after reference date) for BE details to get updated on GST Portal from ICEGATE. This functionality should, therefore, be used if data is not available after this period. The reference date would be either Out of charge date, Duty payment date, or amendment date – whichever is later.
Taxpayers can fetch the requisite details by Login to GST Portal, Navigate to Services > User Services > Search BoE, Enter the Port Code, Bill of Entry Number, Bill of Entry Date and Reference Date and click the SEARCH button.
The reference date would be either Out of charge date, Duty payment date, or amendment date – whichever is later. If the BoE details do not appear in the Search results, click on the QUERY ICEGATE button, at the bottom of the screen, to trigger a query to ICEGATE. History of fetched BoE details from ICEGATE along with status of query are displayed after 30 minutes from the time of triggering the query.
For records of type IMPG (Import of Goods), details of: Period for Form GSTR-2A (system generated Statement of Inward Supplies); Reference Date; Bill of Entry Details like Port Code, BoE Number, BoE Date & Taxable Value; and Amount of Tax would be displayed.
For records of type IMPGSEZ (Import of Goods from SEZ), details of: Period for Form GSTR-2A; Reference Date; GSTIN of Supplier; Trade Name of Supplier; Bill of Entry Details like Port Code, BoE Number, BoE Date & Taxable Value; and Amount of Tax would be displayed.
Taxpayers are advised to confirm correct details either from BE documents, or using ICEGATE portal
In case of any problem the taxpayer may create a ticket at the GST Helpdesk or GST Self-service portal by including details namely complete details of BE records i.e. GSTIN, BE Number, BE Date, Port Code, Reference Number; Screenshot of ICEGATE portal with BE record and Any error that they may have encountered while using the “Search BoE” functionality on GST Portal.
