Important terms for understanding :

Eway bill for unregistered Transporter : There is a requirement of registration for unregistered transporters in case:

a) Value of consignment value of goods of a single supplier exceeds Rs 50,000/-

b) Value of all the goods in a vehicle through which goods are transported exceeds Rs 50,000/-

What is the Meaning of Transporter ID? The transporter ID comes when the transporter is unregistered but the consignment value is above INR 50,000/-. The GST eway bill has to be generated with a transporter ID. The unregistered transporters will be given transporter ID and this ID is to be mentioned on all the GST eway bill.

After the registration on eway bill portal, there will be two outcomes:

  • A unique transporter ID
  • Unique username for operating eway bill portal

Conclusion : To sum up we can say that under GST all the existing state-wise documentation required for movement of goods will be eliminated and the e-way bill will be made common across the nation. Also, the removal of number to check-posts across state borders and national highways will result in ease of movement of goods. This move will certainly seal the leakages that are present in the erstwhile Taxation laws and bring more unorganized sectors in GST net as movement of goods would only be made possible after generation of E Way bill. Since technology is the base for generation of eway bills absence of ERP system would lead to unwanted delays in movement of goods. And Tally.ERP 9 with its vivid features is the best choice for ERP as it handles every aspects of GST right from registration desk to return desk with an easier approach. And also its accounting features are so easy that could even be understood by a non accountant could easily understand and pass entries at the word go.
