What are E-Invoices?
A structured and standardized system to report all B2B invoices to the GST system has been introduced by the government. This is also known as “E-Invoicing under GST” or “Electronic Invoicing”. This is a system to generate authenticated B2B invoices between the supplier and the buyer. It is a system where invoices are generated digitally in a structured format for B2B transactions and validated by the Goods and Service Tax Network (GSTN).
This has become mandatory for all the companies with a turnover of over Rs.100 crores to switch to E-invoicing system from 1st January 2021. It already became mandatory for companies with a turnover of over Rs. 500+ crores from 31st October 2020. Further, this would become mandatory for all B2B transactions irrespective of company size in the coming 12 to 18 months.
Basically it’s the invoice that is ‘reported’ on the GSTN Invoice Registration Portal prior to sending to the buyer. The portal then issues an IRN (Invoice Registration Number) along with a QR code that should be printed on the invoice and then sent to the buyer. This way all invoices that are transferred to the GST portal are uniform in structure and makes the whole process of filing GST very easy.
Benefits of E-Invoicing:
This is very important and significant to understand.
Real time invoicing:
E-invoicing helps to track real time data of invoices generated by the supplier. It also enables the fast availability of Input Tax Credit (ITC). It is also very easy to keep the track of e-invoices byu he supplier and the buyer.
Easy generation of e-way bill:
Taxpayers can just enter the vehicle’s details and then the e-way bill can be created very easily. Details are auto-populated in the part A of the e-way bill from the GST portal for the authenticated invoice.
E-invoices are generated in a standard format which helps in uniform information flow and makes it easy to understand by the stakeholders involved. This makes the whole process of invoicing very simple and interoperable.
E-invoicing helps to access invoices faster and easier.
Reduced data entry error:
All the invoices generated under the e-invoicing system are uploaded on a common portal and are very well authenticated before transferred to the GST portal. This happens in real time. This auto population system reduces the changes of data entry since manual entries are eliminated during GST return filing.
