e-Invoicing: Things You Need to Know!

What is e-Invoicing?
Electronic invoicing or e-Invoicing refers to a system of generating invoices using a standardized format thereby, helping eliminate the need to repunch them for filing returns or at the end of the buyer. This also helps in doing away with any errors that may have arisen in the past due to repunching of data. To put it in layman’s terms, you can share the invoice with others thus ensuring data interoperability.

How will the e-Invoicing model work?
For all intents and purposes, firms would go on business as usual and continue to generate invoices on their ERPs under the new e-Invoicing model. The only difference would be that taxpayers would be given a standard schema and format for e-Invoice generation to ensure standardization and that the e-Invoices are readable by machines.

The taxpayer will be responsible for e-Invoice generation. After the e-Invoice has been generated, it needs to be uploaded at the Invoice Registration Portal (IRP) in JSON format. Once its done, a unique Invoice Reference Number (IRN) will be created by the IRP and the e-Invoice will be digitally signed.

Next, a QR code will be generated which will contain the e-Invoice details and sent to both the taxpayer and the recipient of the e-Invoice on email.
