How to Bulk Import Clients

When you have multiple clients and you want to add their businesses on ClearTax GST software for billing & return filing, you can use the ‘Bulk Import Clients’ feature. This feature will allow you to add all your clients’ businesses on your dashboard, in one go. Let’s see how it is done:

Step 5: Use the guideline and enter the details of your clients. Then, save the file. What to do if your client has multiple GSTINs? Let’s understand this with an example: If a client has 5 GSTINs registered under the same business name and PAN, you can add 5 rows. Make sure the business name, PAN and email id is same in all 5 rows and then enter the respective GSTIN. You can save the file now. The software will create 5 GSTINs under one Client account.
