What is A BOE?
BOE is the acronym for ‘Bill Of Entry’. This is a statutory document that has to be registered by exporters, importers or custom clearance agents with the Customs department on or before the shipment’s arrival. The BOE has to be submitted for goods imported for home consumption as well as for bond clearance.
Who Should Apply For BOE?
- Businesses acquiring goods from Special Economic Zones (SEZs) and selling them within India.
How Is BOE Generated?
In brief, an authorised person has to apply for a BOE on the ICEGATE portal. While filing for the BOE, the details of goods, value, quantity, exemption details, customs tariff and related details have to be submitted. The portal will do the required checks in the backend and generate a BOE number, and the BOE will then be available for download in a PDF format.
How Is The BOE Used?
The authorised person should present the original bill of entry (customs copy) and duty-paid challan and supporting import documents to the proper officer of customs so that the officer can sanction an order to permit the clearance of the goods.
Furthermore, the details available in the BOE can be used to generate the purchase ledger and e-Way Bills. However, when the BOE is in PDF format, these details will have to be entered manually. To help Taxpayers minimise manual work, we have developed the ‘BOE Excel Generator’, a web-based free tool. In addition to this, we have also upgraded our flagship product autoTax to support BOE excel generation. This tool/feature will help Taxpayers convert the BOEs that are in PDF format into an excel file with no data loss and a single click.>
Benefits Of Using ‘BOE Excel Generator’
Once the BOE is available in the .xls (Excel) format, Taxpayers can:
- Directly import the Excel file into their ERP and generate the purchase ledger within minutes.
- Generate e-Way Bills with minimum manual entry. This is possible because most of the details required to generate EWBs are already available in the BOE, and once this BOE is imported into the ERP, the details can be auto-populated.
- Reconcile the stock register with the purchase ledger directly from the ERP.
How To Use The BOE Excel Generator?
We have simplified this tool to its best. On this tool page, all you have to do is:
Step 1: Click on ‘Choose File’ and upload the PDF version of the BOE.
Step 2: Click on ‘Download’
On clicking the download button, the file will be converted instantaneously and will be downloaded within seconds. The best part is, the file name will remain the same. Easy to locate and navigate!
