Implementation of e-invoicing: Timelines and updates

The GST Council has approved introduction of 'e-invoicing' or 'Electronic invoicing', which is applicable to specified categories of persons, in a phased manner, starting from January 2020. The e-invoicing system contemplates electronic reporting to and authentication by GSTN of the B2B invoices. 

The Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs has also issued several notifications to bring into effect provisions governing e-invoicing and Quick Response (QR) code generation from 1 April 2020. The key features of the aforesaid provisions are summarized below:

  • A registered person whose aggregate turnover in a financial year (FY) exceeds INR 1bn will be required to prepare an invoice after obtaining a unique IRN from the specified GST portal. For this purpose, Form GST INV- 01 containing various particulars will need to be uploaded to generate the IRN needed for invoices on supply(ies) of goods and/or services to a registered person.
  • Invoices issued without an IRN generated will be treated as invalid.
  • This process now eliminates the requirement to issue duplicate/ triplicate invoice copies.
  • A list of 10 websites that can be accessed for the generation of the IRN (collectively called the "Common Goods and Service Tax Electronic Portal") has been provided.
  • An invoice issued by a registered person whose aggregate turnover in a FY exceeds INR 5bn for the supply of goods and services to an unregistered person is required to have a QR Code.
  • Where such registered person is paid via the application of a Dynamic QR Code made available to the recipient through a digital display, such invoice containing cross reference of the payment via the Dynamic QR code shall be deemed to meet the criteria.

Going by the GST experience, compliance challenges are likely to persist in view of the evolving regulations. E-invoicing is a major change in a business critical process, necessitating a holistic review of existing IT systems and processes. Businesses need to evaluate their technology readiness to ensure that they have reviewed all possible impacted touchpoints, are geared up to cope with these changes, as well as have a strategy for change management of relevant stakeholders. To address the complexities associated with the above, it is critical that you start preparing on immediate basis to be ready in time to meet the 1 April 2020 deadline.
