ICEGATE – GST integration

update from GST portal

  1. To help importers of goods, and recipients of supplies from SEZ, search Bill of Entry details, which did not auto-populate in GSTR-2A, a self-service functionality has been made available on the GST Portal that can be used to search such records in GST System, and fetch the missing records from ICEGATE.
  2. Please note that it usually takes 2 days (after reference date) for BE details to get updated on GST Portal from ICEGATE. This functionality should, therefore, be used if data is not available after this period.

  3. Taxpayers can follow the below steps to fetch the requisite details:
    1. Login to GST Portal
    2. Navigate to Services > User Services > Search BoE
    3. 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.
    4. 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.
    5. History of fetched BoE details from ICEGATE along with status of query are displayed after 30 minutes from the time of triggering the query.
