What is e-invoicing?

E-invoicing is an invoicing system under the GST regime through which you could authenticate B2B invoices electronically by GSTN and use them wherever required over the common GST portal. The Invoice Registration Portal (IRP) would issue an identification number against each invoice that could be used across the GST Network (GSTN).

Why should you opt for e-invoicing?

The GST Council in India has made e-invoicing mandatory for businesses that have a turnover of more than Rs.20 Crores. Regardless of this, it would be a game-changer for your business for the following reasons:

  • E-invoicing would help you overcome the data reconciliation challenges and reduce data mismatch errors in GST.
  • You would no longer have to manually feed invoice data in tax return filing as the details would be auto-populated through e-invoicing.
  • It would let you track supplier invoices in real-time.
  • The input tax credit would be available much faster.
  • As e-invoicing provides transparency at the transaction level, the likelihood of audits and surveys by tax authorities would become minimal.

E-invoicing - FAQs

What are the benefits of e-invoicing?

Following are some of the major benefits of e-invoicing:

  • E-invoicing eliminates the need for reporting in multiple formats for B2B invoices and enables one-time reporting.
  • The e-invoicing data could be used to generate e-way bills.
  • You could also enable real-time tracking of invoices prepared by a supplier.
  • E-invoicing reduces the verification issues related to the tax credit.
  • By using the e-invoicing system, you would have most of the data ready for filing in GSTR-1.
  • The need for data reconciliation between your books and GST returns filed would be minimal.
  • Overall automation and improved handling of the entire tax-filing process.

How does the e-invoicing model work?

The basic process of generating invoices through ERP systems is the same under the e-invoicing model. However, there would be a defined standard, schema, and format for e-invoicing to ensure uniformity so that machines and computer systems could easily read these invoices. The taxpayer would be responsible for generating the invoice.

An e-invoice has to be reported to the Invoice Registration Portal (IRP) at the time of its generation. The IRP would generate a unique Invoice Reference Number (IRN) and add a digital signature to the invoice. It would then return the same to the taxpayer. The IRP would also send the signed e-invoice to the seller on their registered email ID.
