How can I access the Export Ledger on the GST Portal?

The GST Portal uses ledger based approach to cumulate the IGST/CESS from export/SEZ invoices (Table 6A/9A/6B of GSTR 1), and compare with IGST/CESS paid under Table 3.1(b) of GSTR 3B across all periods. The eligible invoices are transmitted by GST Portal to ICEGATE only if the IGST/CESS paid under Table 3.1(b) >= IGST/CESS from invoices of Tables 6A/6B/9A.

The difference between IGST/CESS from Table 3.1(b) and Tables 6A/6B/9A is recorded as export ledger balance in the GST Portal. In case of negative balance, GST Portal will not transmit any eligible invoice to ICEGATE.
