Why it is Mandatory to Mention 6 Digit HSN Codes? Announcements By - Deepak Raj M C

Attention Taxpayers



As per the Notification No.78/2020 – Central Tax dated 15th October, 2020, it is mandatory for the taxpayers to mention 6-digit HSN Codes for their outward supplies having AATO more than Rs 5 Crores.

After a few weeks of time, e-Invoice System will not accept 4-digit HSN codes. The date for blocking e-Invoice generation having HSN code as 4-digits will be intimated shortly in this portal.

So, please make necessary changes in your system to report 6-digit HSN codes to e-Invoice Portal and comply by the notification.

You may verify all your HSN codes in the ( https://einvoice1.gst.gov.in ) portal under Search–>Master–>HSN Codes and also test in the sandbox system (https://einv-apisandbox.nic.in )

In case the 6-digit HSN code is not available, you may raise a ticket at Helpdesk so that it can be included in the system.
