IFF is LIVE on GST portal. Sorting out the B2B documents for IFF reporting becomes essential to pass tax credits to buyers but may get cumbersome. The GSTN’s advisory stated that the option to upload details in IFF can be used till 13th of the next month. Any invoices left out to be reported can be filed using the IFF in the consequent month IFF or directly on the quarterly Form GSTR-1.

Navigate to Returns > Services > Returns Dashboard > File Returns > Select FY and month > click on the ‘SEARCH’ button to file the IFF forms. For more details about the steps, read our article on ‘Steps to file IFF’.
