Step 1: Taxpayers have to upload the invoice details in their accounting software (Tally, ERP, Busy, SAP etc.) and generate the JSON file.

Step 2: Now this JSON file have to upload onto the Invoice Registration Portal (IRP) to be managed by the GST Network.

Step 3: IRP will validate the key details of the B2B invoice, checks for any duplications and

  • digitally signs the invoice and
  • creates a QR code in Output JSON for the supplier.

  • Seller and Buyer on the mail Ids provided in the invoice.
  • GSTN Portal
    • In ANX-1 (for outward supplies) for the seller, and
    • In ANX-2 (for inward supplies) for the buyer.
  • E-way bill system

  • Buyer has an option to accept or reject the transaction.
