IGST Shipping Bill – GSTN Integration Status Report

SB000  : Successfully Valided

SB001 : Invalid SB Details, This may occur due to a mismatch between the SB No. furnished in GSTR-1/6A and the SB No. with customs. The possible reason for such mismatch could be a clerical error made by the exporter at the time of filling of GSTR-1/6A, which can be rectified by making amendments in GSTR-1 by using Form 9A. Form 9A has been made available by GSTN w.e.f 15.12.2017 in exporter’s login at the GST Common Portal.

SB002  : EGM Not Filed , Exporter may approach the Shipping Lines to file the EGM immediately

SB0003: Invalid GSTN ID, This error occurs when GSTIN declared in the SB does not match with the GSTIN used to fill the corresponding GST Returns. In this case too, the Exporter may be asked to make necessary adjustments in GSTR-1 by use of amendment Form 9A. However, it is to be noted that there is no provision of amendment in the Shipping Bill once the EGM is filed

SB004 : GSTR3 Already Filed, This error code occurs due to duplicate/repeat transmission of SB-Invoice record from GSTN. The previous transmission would have already been validated for IGST refund by ICES.

SB005 :  Invalid Invoice Number, This can happen due to:
a) Typographical mistake while entering data in GSTR 1 or the SB.
b) The exporter uses two sets of invoices, one invoice for GST and another invoice for exports resulting in mismatch of invoice numbers.

If SB005 is due to a data entry mistake in GSTR 1, it can be amended now in Form 9A.But any mistake in the SB cannot be amended once EGM is filed. it is advised that the exporters be informed to not repeat this mistake and ensure that the same GST compliant export invoice is declared at both ends

SB006 : Gateway EGM not filed, In case of ICDs, if the Gateway EGM is not filed electronically or is stuck in some error, response code SB006 shall appear. It is noticed that Gateway EGM in case of many ICD’s Shipping Bills have been manually filed, which shall not suffice and the EGM shall have to be filed in ICES at the gateway port.

  1. Dear Sir
    We have filed inadvertently an export shipping bill in customs under LUT instead of IGST.
    The Shipping Bill shows IGST (000) ,SHIPPER HAS PAID THE IGST AMOUNT and even filed the returns GSTR1 & GSTR3B/6A ,,, NOW shipper seeks to claim refund which is not getting integrated in GST PORTAL.
    Please suggest how to get amendment in shipping bill from LUT TO IGST so that the shipper gets his refund.
    Thanks in advance for your kind co-operation.
