After creating GSTR 1 draft and saving all data to GSTN, now you are ready to submit GSTR 1 return. Please note that submission of return is the final step after which you are not allowed to make changes in submitted data. So be careful while submitting your return.
So from now on, using IRIS Sapphire, you can submit your GSTR 1 return to GSTN.
So here in submit, firstly you will get checklist; based on which you need to first check the data and get assured that everything is correctly mentioned in return and now you can submit return.
Following are the type of checkpoints you will get:
1. HSN Summary is blank - If you have not provided HSN summary then you will get this check in Submit checklist 2. Document details is blank - If you have not provided document details then you will get this check in submit checklist 3. If any invoices are in"To be saved status" or if there are any invoices which are having errors and also if you have deleted some invoices from IRIS Sapphire and not saved that invoices to GSTN, then for all these scenarios, you will get the checkpoint in submit checklist
Also here in this checklist, for every checkpoint, you will be provided a procedure to check those warnings. So just click on that warning then you will get the procedure to check data.
You can submit your GSTR1 once you have checked for all the points.
