  • After uploading a JSON file, the data or invoices will be visible on the GST portal in 15 – 30 minutes. Do not upload more than once.
  • If the data is still not visible on the GST Portal after 30 minutes, try re-uploading the file. The data will be rewritten or appended if you upload a file multiple times.

Step 5: 

  • Check the data on the GST Portal.
  • The data will be validated by the GSTN and added to the taxpayer’s GST portal -> returns dashboard after 15 – 30 minutes of uploading a file. You can view the data and invoices uploaded via the JSON file by clicking on various sections.
  • Invoices that were successfully uploaded without errors are displayed separately. You can also modify or delete the data.
  • If any additional data is required, it is displayed separately in the returns dashboard for additional input, editing, or deletion.
