All About GST E-Invoiceing in India

By Admin, 4/18/2024 12:39:57 PM

E-Invoice is a system in which B2B invoices are authenticated electronically by GSTN for further use on the common GST portal. Under the electronic invoicing system, an identification number will be issued against every invoice by the Invoice Registration Portal (IRP) to be managed by the GST Network (GSTN).

All invoice information is transferred from portal to both the GST portal and e-way bill portal in real time. Therefore, it eliminates the need for manual data entry while filing GSTR-1 returns as well as generation of part-A of the e-way bills, as the information is passed directly by the IRP to GST portal.

Businesses have the following benefits by using e-invoice initiated by GSTN

  1. E-invoice resolves and plugs a major gap in data reconciliation under GST to reduce mismatch errors.

  2. E-invoices created on one software can be read by another, allowing interoperability and help reduce data entry errors.

  3. Real-time tracking of invoices prepared by the supplier is enabled by e-invoice.

  4. Backward integration and automation of the tax return filing process – the relevant details of the invoices would be auto-populated in the various returns, especially for generating the part-A of e-way bills.

  5. Faster availability of genuine input tax credit.

  6. Lesser possibility of audits/surveys by the tax authorities since the information they require is available at a transaction level.

Can we generate e-invoice on portal?

You cannot raise or generate e invoice directly from GST Portal, since e invoicing is a process of only validating all the B2B invoices electronically by the GST Network (GSTN). Also, it is not convenient to generate e invoice, especially in bulk directly from the e invoice portal.

How do I get an e-invoice in GST portal?

If you are a first-time user, then visit the e-invoice portal -> registration menu -> click on ‘e-Invoice Enablement’. Enter a particular GSTIN of the company and get the OTP verification done. Enter the annual turnover details with the related financial year and submit. You can get registered for e-invoicing. Next time onwards, login to the e-invoice portal and upload B2B invoices using a chosen mode to generate IRN.

What is the time limit for the generation of IRN?

There is no set time limit. You can generate e invoice within a few days after the date of the B2B invoice. However, it is recommended for you generate IRN within the Time of Supply provisions of the CGST Act.
