Bill of Entry Information getting Retrieved from the ICEGATE Portal
A self-service functionality has been made available on the GST Portal to help importers of goods and recipients of supplies from SEZ search Bill of Entry details that did not auto-populate in GSTR-2A. It can be used to search such records in the GST System and fetch the missing records from ICEGATE.
Please keep in mind that BE data from ICEGATE normally take 2 days to post on the GST Portal (after the reference date). If data is not accessible after this time, this functionality should be used.
Note: The reference date would be either Out of charge date, duty payment date, or modification date, whichever is later.
Taxpayers can obtain the necessary deductions by following the processes outlined below:
a. Login to GST Portal
b. Navigate to Services > User Services > Search BoE
c. Enter the Port Code, Bill of Entry Number, Bill of Entry Date and Reference Date and click the SEARCH button.
Note: The reference date would be either Out of charge date, Duty payment date, or amendment date – whichever is later.
d. If the BoE details do not appear in the Search results, click on the QUERY ICEGATE button, at the bottom of the screen, to trigger a query to ICEGATE.
e. History of fetched BoE details from ICEGATE along with status of query are displayed after 30 minutes from the time of triggering the query.
