    Nov 24, 2020 Alankit Team GST

    E-invoicing is a system of generating authenticated B2B invoices electronically by GSTN (Goods and Services Tax Network) to be exchanged between suppliers and buyers. The true practice of e-invoicing should be electronic through its entire life cycle, from the stage of supplier creating it to the buyer processing it. The integrated solution enables a fully automated flow directly from a company’s ERP system to another.

    The concept of GST e-invoice generation was considered to ensure a reduction in GST evasion. Businesses whose turnover exceeds INR 500 Crore should mandatorily generate e-Invoices under the GST regime w.e.f October 31, 2020. Whereas businesses whose turnover is over 100 Crore should generate e-invoices w.e.f January 1, 2021.

    Benefits of E-invoicing

    It is significant to understand a variety of benefits offered by E-invoicing as listed below:

After authentication, all invoices are transferred to the GST portal and e-way bill portal in real-time. This process eliminates the need for manual data entry while GST return filing and ensures reduction in data entry errors.
