GSTZen Software Updates – December 2021


GSTZen believes in making our software as up-to-date and effective as possible. We are hence on a constant lookout for nifty features that would improve user’s software experience. Follow this page to know all about the new features and software updates GSTZen introduces on a regular basis.


Auto-populated e-Invoices in GSTR 1


Earlier GSTZen was using the e-invoices generated report from the portal for filing GSTR 1, but the report is not reliable. It is unreliable because sometimes the e-invoices reported as auto-populated are not actually auto-populated in GSTR 1. Hence, we have switched over from e-invoices generated to auto-populated invoices in GSTR 1.

You can find the feature in GSTR 1 filing page. Follow the steps below to file with auto-populated invoices

  • Upload sales for the month
  • Log into GST Portal through GSTZen and download the auto-populated e-invoicing data from the GST Portal.

  • Choose the settings (above Step 4 in the GSTR 1 filing page) for selecting the invoices for filing GSTR 1

Emails notifying users about the upcoming tax rate changes


Recently, GSTZen had sent out emails alerting users about the upcoming tax rate changes pertinent to their business that are coming into force from 1st Jan 2022. The email contained the HSN codes used/reported by them in GSTR1/GSTR9 and in their sales invoices whose rates will be changing. We hope to send these customized reports/alerts in the future to inform users about changes that will affect them.

Now, users can generate delivery challan using GSTZen. To generate a delivery challan, you need to select the option under Document Type while creating the invoice
