Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Tax Management work center.
  2. Under Tax Returns select VAT Returns.
  3. Show All Tax Returns and select your reported Tax Return X which is of Tax Return Type: GSTR-2.
  4. Select the Tax Return ID line and click on Pay.


VAT returns which are of GSTR-1 and GSTR-2 are not payment relevant so, when ever you try to pay them you get this error message.

  1. Go to Tax Management work center.
  2. Under Tax Authorities select Company Tax Arrangements.
  3. Edit the Tax Authority and navigate to Company Tax Arrangements tab and to the subtab Tax Return Arrangements tab.
  4. For the Tax Return Type: GSTR-1 and GSTR-2 you can see Payment Relevant is not marked and only for GSTR-3 it is marked as Payment Relevant.


When you execute the GSTR-1 & GSTR-2, there is a reconciliation that happens. After that total payable/receivable gets calculated at GSTN level.

You then need to run GSTR-3 to close particular tax lines in ByD system. Thats when, your GSTR-3 status is reported and you can choose to Pay this and with this system will derive at the total pay/receivable amount at the GSTN level.
