Executive Summary 

What is e-invoicing and why has it been mandated under recent GST guidelines?  

E-invoicing or electronic invoicing refers to a method of processing invoices (and/or the data pertaining to the invoice) in an electronic format, and on a unified platform between buyers and suppliers.

What makes e-invoicing not only relevant, but significant right now is that it digitizes the entire invoicing cycle leveraging data exchange between the parties involved. As far as government regulations are concerned, e-invoicing under GST can prove to be (and perhaps does already so) a commendable step towards avoiding data duplication and tax evasion among other things.
