Its a common experience of all us especially using Tally.ERP 9 Gold or simply known as multi user that once a statutory return like VAT is filled, we pass back dated invoices which we receive latter or sometimes, ignorant user amend any old entries, delete it or make changes and thus it creates a mis match with the return data already filled on state website. Since most of the state vat returns are to be filled monthly within the strict dead line, such unintentional changes to back dated entries creates mis match with the data given to vat department which then needs a lot of investigation and time spending to find out the cause of difference. Now imagine a situation what if the VAT department gives you all the details of bills, supplier/ customer name/ invoice number, date qty and amount etc whatever you had filled in the vat department site! how it will be useful for you to track with your amended data and you can convince to the department what actually was went wrong!!!

Earlier it takes minimum 10-15 days to process c forms for the quarter ended but trust me I processed the form immediately in 15 minutes!! and the supplier was impressed how quickly I processed the form! This is all due to the facility introduced by the KVAT department for e-Return and e-UPaSS.
