If you are already using Tally.ERP 9, below is a simple step-by-step guide on how to generate e-Way Bill Numbers for transactions recorded in Tally.ERP 9.
The e-Way Bill captures invoice details and transport details. The invoice level details will be readily available in the invoices which you have created in Tally.ERP 9.
Tally.ERP 9 provides two options to print invoices. You can choose from either of the following two options which are available in the F12 configuration while printing.
“Print item-wise GST details” option
“Print HSN/SAC details” option

Now you must login to the e-Way portal and provide invoice information along with transport details. You can do this either by downloading the Excel Offline Utility tool and filling it up, or by entering details directly in the portal itself. After this, the portal will generate the corresponding e-Way Bill with a unique e-Way Bill Number. This bill can be printed and the same can be carried along with the tax invoice generated from Tally at the time of transporting goods.
You can also record e-Way Bill information in the narration field of the invoice. If your business operates in Karnataka, you can capture the e-Way Bill information in the “Provide GST details” sub-form.
