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.
