Reconciliation 'Bucket/ Tabs and their meaning

While carrying out reconciliation you may find invoices in below buckets namely:

Matched - When your vendor and you, both have entered the invoice and the entries are getting matched between both the documents taking along Supplier GSTIN & Invoice Number as the base fields, in other words, the system will first check for Supplier GSTIN & Invoice Number, if these two are matching, then only system will proceed further to check whether other fields are also matching or not.

Mismatch - When your vendor and you, both have entered the invoice, but there are certain mismatches in the content/ values/ data of the same invoice, then the system will throw those invoices in these buckets. Although, there are sub-buckets as well which a user can view in this Section.

Invoice Date mismatch - If the Invoice Number is the same for Financial Year and date are different for the same Invoice.

Not Present in GSTR – 9(8A) - As per the naming convention, this bracket contains all those invoices which is present in your purchase register but missing in counter party filed GSTR – 1 i.e. your GSTR 9(8A)

Invoice Number Mismatch - It is a very special column or bracket which contains all those invoices where my rest of the details are matching i.e. Supplier GSTIN, Taxable Value, Tax Value etc: but Invoice Number is not matching.

Accepted Records - We have provided an option to the user where they can accept the records from different buckets for their known match / mismatch bucket, this will help them to reconcile the rest of the data.

Non-Reconcile - This bucket consist of multiple type of invoices which includes amendment Invoices uploaded by the supplier due to which B2B and B2BA both are coming in the same Financial Year,therefore, we have implemented a logic where B2BA will be reconciled with invoice present in Purchase Register & B2B will be sent to Non - Reconcile bucket. Also, this bucket contains those invoices where "Return Submit Status" is coming for an invoice as "Y" & "N.

Probable Matched: User can find the Invoices that are Probable matches. Either one or few of the details matching and rest details are not matching. It gives the flexibility to the user to take Action on such invoices

Linked Invoice - It is noticed that sometimes there are few invoices appearing in β€œNot Present in GSTR 9(8A)” & β€œNot Present in PR” bucket due to multiple mismatch reasons. Now to reduce the mismatches in both the buckets we have provided a functionality to the user where they can force match those invoices according to their convenience and can also preview the required details on the screen before force matching of invoices.

Now, in case a user wants to De-Link the invoices which he/she might had linked earlier, the option for the same is also available, after executing of De-Link functionality, invoices will be transferred to their origin bucket
