With the GST e-invoicing mandate in India overlooking a government-regulated step towards digitization, there are questions pertaining to the implementation, legality, and guidelines that dictate how the e-invoicing process works.
For instance, it’s a common misconception that e-invoicing under GST ‘generates’ invoices for the supplier. Instead, it is a platform for supplier-generated invoices to be ‘registered’ on a common unified government portal (Invoice Registration Portal).
Therefore, taxpayers can continue to use their existing Accounting/ERP systems to create invoices and report them to the IRP to be uniquely identified with an Invoice Reference Number (IRN) hash and QR code.
Since the inception of e-invoicing under GST almost 39 crore Invoice reference numbers (IRNs) have been generated as of 31st March 2021. Reportedly, more than 36000 taxpayers with an aggregate turnover of over ₹500 Cr, and 52000 taxpayers in the ₹100 Cr - ₹500 Cr bracket are actively generating e-invoices.
