  4. 4. Getting Started with Excise Dealer E-Returns1.1 IntroductionThe Central Board of Excise and Customs has issued a notification making e-filing mandatory forassessees with effect form 1-4-2010. As per the Notification, all the registered Excise Dealerswould now be required to file quarterly returns as prescribed under the provision to sub-rule (8) ofrule 9 of the CENVAT Credit Rules 2004, electronically irrespective of the amount of CENVATcredit taken by them or passed on by them in a year.To assist and manage e-filing, Central Board of Excise & Customs has set up an e-governanceportal – Automation of Central Excise and Service Tax (ACES) [http://aces.gov.in]1.1.1 E-Filling of Dealer ReturnCurrently, ACES application allows filing Quarterly Return for the Registered Dealers online whoare accessing the ACES site through PCs / Internet Browsers.To make E- filing easy for the Excise Dealers to file returns in Automation Of Central Excise AndService Tax (ACES), department has given the options of off line filing using Excel utility or XMLschema. XML Schema is a language for describing the structure and constraining the contents of XML documentsAssessees who are not maintaining the records in computerised system, can down load the Excelutility and enter the details manually, validate and upload the Excel utility.Assessees who have computerized systems in place and can generate their return from theirexisting application department has given the process to prepare return in XML format, validateand upload the Dealer return. Benefits of using the XML schema is that if user is having huge datato upload instead of entering manually they can use their application for generating XML schema. 1
  5. 5. Getting Started with Excise Dealer E-Returns1.2 Generating E-Returns fromTally.ERP9Meeting all the requirements of E-Returns, Tally.ERP 9 now provides the option to generate thequarterly return with a click of a button.For generating E-Returns from Tally.ERP9, let us take the example of ABC Company which isregistered as per Excise Rules and engaged in Trading.To generate E-Returns follow the given Steps:Under Central Excise Tariff Act, for every excise stock item Unit of Quantity is defined.Example: Unit of Quantity is U for NumbersThe act also makes it clear that all the reports relating to stock items are required to be indicatedwith the relevant Unit of Quantity as specified under Central Excise Tariff Act. It even applies toE-returns. In Tally.ERP 9 Unit of Quantity is termed as Reporting UOM.In case, the users are not using the Defined Unit of Quantity as Unit of Measurement (base unit)for the stock items then it is must to assign the appropriate Unit of Quantity to generate E-Returns. If there are any differences in the Unit of Quantity defined in the item master then theapplication will not allow to generate e-returns till such discrepancies are resolved or corrected. Note: In Tally.ERP 9, while creating the stock item application gives the option to define the Base Unit and Reporting UOM. Currently, for the stock items created under Dealer Unit the base unit defined will be considered as the Reporting UOM and system does not allow to alter the Reporting UOM. In case the base unit defined is different from standard Unit of Quantity user has to select the correct Reporting UOM for the Stock Item.Following are the Unit of Quantity defined under Central Excise Tariff Act Unit of Quantity Description 1KKWH 1000 Kilowatt Hours C/K Carats CM Centimetre CM3 Cubic Centimetre G Grams GI F/S Gram of Fissile Isotopes KG Kilograms KL Kilolitre 2

Update Single Stock ItemIn this method Reporting UOM is updated one stock item at a time by identifying the stock itemswhich have the base unit which is not the Unit of Quantity as defined under Central Excise TariffAct.To understand how to update single stock item, let us take the example of stock item which havethe base unit as Box. In ABC Company the stock items to which the Unit of measurement - Box isused, the applicable Unit of Quantity is U.To update the stock item,Go to Gateway of Tally > Inventory info. > Stock Items > Alter (Single Stock Item) > selectDCECASTP4P3X-STP CABLE from the List of Stock Items 3
