How to prepare secured statement package on Income Tax Reporting Portal

Generic Submission Utility is a desktop utility that enables a user to prepare a secure statement package which is required for submitting the generated statement XML. The facility is also provided to directly upload the secured statement package instead of uploading it through Reporting Portal.

Preparing a Secured Statement Package

The step-by-step process to prepare a secured statement package using the Generic Submission Utility is as follows:

  1. Download the Generic Submission Utility from reporting portal and run the Utility.
  2. Click the Secure XML tab.
