IRN & e-Way Bill Generation

I am getting Pincode/quantity errors every time I try to generate IRN

Make sure all details are updated in company info, party master as well as stock master. This is a one time activity required to make your data einvoicing compliant.

When I try to generate IRN, I get an “unauthorized” error

Make sure your TCP module is configured for production environment and auth token is correct. Download the setup and run the installer once again to fix the issue. You can also verify by going to Gateway of Tally > Features (F11) > Add On Features > Enable einvoicing module (Yes) and check whether API links begin with “https://api-einv.cleartax” and not “https://einvoicing.internal.cleartax

You can also update Auth token and owner ID here by logging in to einv.cleartax.in > Settings (top right dropdown) > Integration Settings

Org unit list has list of owner IDs, Auth token tab can be used to generate a new authorization token. Paste these details in Tally and save them.

What do the color codes mean?

Black - No action taken

Blue - Only IRN generated

Red - IRN generation failed due to some error in data

How can I generate eWaybill along with IRN

Inside the voucher > Generate GST/eWayBill > Yes > Fill in details and Save > Generate IRN

How can I auto calculate distance in eWaybill

Set distance to 0 so that ClearTax can calculate distance between pincodes automatically


QR code is not getting generated

Ensure that Tally connector has been installed on the same physical system where the Tally instance is running. It is possible that the connector is installed on admin machine, but QR code is not generated on the client system - which can be resolved using this issue.

If this does not fix the issue, try checking whether a file called QRimg.jpg is being generated. If it is being generated, changing printing QR code position will help fix this. If it not QRimg.jpg is not present, reinstall the Tally connector or contact support.

How can I change printing QR code position

Gateway of Tally > Accounts Info > Voucher Types > Alter > (Select voucher) > QR code position > Top/Center

Can I use a custom print format?

Tally connector uses the standard print format. If you want more custom print formats, you can use the formats available from einv.cleartax.in

Can I modify the QR code for my B2C invoices?

B2C invoices can have UPI ID set up. This can be changed from Gateway of Tally > Features (F11) > Add On Features > Enable einvoicing module (Yes) > UPI ID
