The GST Council, in its 37th meeting on 20th September 2019, recommended the introduction of electronic invoice ('e-invoice') in GST in a phased manner.

GST e-invoice System is a path-breaking initiative that is going to revolutionize the way businesses interact with each other. It will be yet another milestone in India's journey in enhancing the ease of doing business.

'e-invoicing' essentially involves reporting details of specified GST documents to a Government-notified portal and obtaining a reference number.

e-invoicing has many advantages for businesses such as standardization, inter-operability, auto-population of invoice details into GST return and other forms (like e-way bill), reduction in processing costs, reduction in disputes, improvement in payment cycles and thereby improving overall business efficiency.

Huge advancements in technology sophistication, increased penetration of internet along with the availability of computer systems at a reasonable cost has made 'e-invoice', a popular choice worldwide.

There are numerous doubts on e-invoicing currently, thus the GST Portal has launched the below-mentioned FAQs regarding the same.

Generation of IRN

Q) What is Invoice Reference Number (IRN)?

The Invoice Reference Number (IRN) is a unique number (also known as hash) generated by the e-invoice system using a hash generation algorithm. For every document viz., an invoice or debit or credit note to be submitted on the e-invoice system, a unique 64-character Invoice Reference Number (IRN) shall be generated which is based on the computation of hash of GSTIN of supplier of document (invoice or credit note etc.), Year, Document type and Document number. This shall be unique to each invoice and hence will be the unique identity for each invoice for the entire financial year in the entire GST System for a taxpayer.

Q) How do I generate IRN?

There are two modes for generation of IRN

  • Using excel offline tool
  • Using API integration

Q) Can I generate IRN for an Invoice for which IRN is already generated?

No, only unique invoices from a taxpayer will be accepted by the e-invoice system. E-invoice system will check in the Central Registry of GST system to ensure that the same invoice from the same supplier pertaining to the same financial year is not being uploaded again for generating one more IRN.

Q) How long will the generated e-invoice be available in the government portal?

Once the e-invoice system has validated and registered an IRN, it will be made available to the taxpayer for reference on the e-invoice system for only 24 hours.

Q) What should I do if the state is not auto-populated on entering PIN code?

If the state name is not auto-populated, then select the correct state and continue IRN generation.

Q) What are pre-requisites to generate the e-invoice?

The pre-requisite for generation of e-invoice is that the person who generates e-invoice should be a registered person (active) on GST portal and e-invoice system or e-way bill system. The documents viz., tax invoice or Debit Note or credit Note will be reported by the person who is generating the e-invoice. If a user is generating Bulk invoices, then he/she should have a valid JSON file as per the e-invoice schema to upload on the e-invoice system or he/she has to integrate with API interface and generate the IRN.

Q) How can anyone verify the authenticity or the correctness of e-invoice?

Anyone can verify the authenticity or the correctness of e-invoice by uploading the signed JSON file or Signed QR Code into the e-invoice system. The option 'Verify Signed Invoice' under Search option can be selected and the signed JSON file can be uploaded and verified. Similarly, the QR Code Verify app may be downloaded and used to verify the QR Code printed on the Invoice.

Q) What is the meaning of digitally signed e-invoice?

The digitally signed invoice is one which has been digitally or electronically signed by the IRP after receiving the invoice details from the supplier. That is, the government is authenticating the genuineness of the invoice details submitted/registered by the taxpayer.

Q) What are the different Supply types available in e-Invoice schema?

The different supply types that can be reported are B2B: Business to Business, SEZWP: To SEZ with Payment, SEZWOP: To SEZ without Payment, EXPWP: Export with Payment, EXPWOP: Export without Payment, DEXP: Deemed Export

Cancellation of IRN

Q) Can IRN be deleted or cancelled?

The IRN, once generated cannot be modified or deleted. However, if IRN is generated with wrong information, it can be cancelled. Once cancelled, the same document (with same document number) can't be reported again for generation of IRN. The cancellation is required to be done within 24 hours from the time of generation.

Q) If there is a mistake or wrong entry in the e-invoice, what has to be done?

If there is a mistake, incorrect or wrong entry in the e-invoice, then it cannot be edited or corrected. Only option is to cancel that invoice/IRN and report a new document (with new number) and generate a fresh IRN.

Q) Whether e-invoices generated through the GST system can be partially / fully cancelled?

• E-Invoice/IRN can't be partially cancelled. It has to be fully cancelled.

• The e-invoice mechanism enables invoices to be cancelled. This will have to be triggered through the IRP within 24 hours.

Signed Invoice & QR Code

Q) What is the meaning of digitally signed QR code?

The digitally signed QR code of the invoice is one which has been digitally or electronically signed and prepared the QR Code by the IRP after receiving the invoice uploaded by the supplier. That is, the government is authenticating the genuineness of the invoice, by preparing the important information of the invoice in QR Code form and signing it so that its authenticity can be verified offline by anyone using offline tools. This will be helpful for tax officers checking the invoice on the roadside where the Internet may not be available all the time. The web user will get a printable form with all details including QR code. The QR code will consist of the following e-invoice parameters:

  • GSTIN of Supplier
  • GSTIN of Recipient
  • Invoice number as given by Supplier
  • Date of generation of invoice
  • Invoice value (taxable value and gross tax)
  • Number of line items.
  • HSN Code of main item (the line item having highest taxable value)
  • Unique Invoice Reference Number (IRN)
  • Date of generation of IRN

Q) What is the purpose of Signed QR Code?

The IRP will generate a QR code containing the unique IRN (hash) along with some important particulars of invoice including digital signature so that it can be verified by an Offline App.

Q) When would the Signed QR code be available?

The IRP system will provide this 'Signed QR Code' as part of the response to the request made by the taxpayer for the IRN generation.

Q) How can one use the Signed QR Code?

The Signed QR Code can be verified by anyone using the offline app provided on the IRP portal. Content of the signed QR code can be easily verified by the taxpayers or Tax Officials to ascertain whether the invoice is registered with the IRP and is digitally signed by the IRP itself. By validating the content of the QR code data with the digitally signed content (which is part of the QR code itself) one can check the authenticity of the document contents. If the content of the QR code is tampered with, the signature verification fails and the e-Invoice will become invalid.

Q) What will be there in Signed QR Code?

The QR code will consist of the following e-invoice parameters:

  • GSTIN of Supplier
  • GSTIN of Recipient
  • Invoice number as given by Supplier
  • Date of generation of invoice
  • Invoice value (taxable value and gross tax)
  • Number of line items.
  • HSN Code of main item (the line item having highest taxable value)
  • Unique Invoice Reference Number (IRN)
  • Date of generation of IRN

Q) Does the taxpayer have to print the signed QR Code?

The Signed QR Code has to be printed by the taxpayer on the invoice copy issued to the buyer.

However, Printing of QR code on separate paper is not allowed.

Printed QR code shall be clear enough to be readable by a QR Code reader

Size and its placing on invoice isupto the preference of the businesses.

Q) What shall be the size of the Signed QR code on the invoice?

  • Printed QR code shall be clear enough to be readable by a QR Code reader
  • Size and its placing on invoice isupto the preference of the businesses.

Q) How to verify the QR code or Signed JSON invoice file?

There are two methods for this.

• First mode is download the mobile app from the https://einvoice1.gst.gov.in portal under Help menu and download option. Using this app read QR code and verify the details of the e-invoice or upload the signed JSON file and see the e-invoice.

• Second mode is go to https://einvoice1.gst.gov.in portal and select search and verify signed invoice and upload the file and see the e-invoice.

User Management

Q) What is the need to create sub-users?

Many of the businesses have multiple places of business or head office and branch at different locations or work remotely from the principal place of business. Generating IRN with a single login may be a challenge for them. To overcome this challenge business can create multiple sub-users. A sub-user can use the same login credentials created originally and perform the actions as per the access that is given to them. For example, a sub-user may be allowed to generate IRN and restricted to accept IRN.

Q) Why do I need sub-users?

Most of the time, the taxpayer or authorized person himself cannot operate and generate IRN's. He will be dependent upon his staff or operator to do that. He would not like to avoid sharing his user credentials to them. In some firms, the business activities will be operational 24/7 and some firms will have multiple branches. Under these circumstances, the main user can create sub-users and assign the roles to them. He can assign generation of IRN or report generation activities based on requirements. This facility helps him to monitor the activities done by sub-users. However, the main user should ensure that whenever an employee is transferred or resigned, the sub-user account is frozen / blocked to avoid misuse of credentials.

Q) How many sub-users can be created?

For every principal/additional place of business, user can create maximum of 10 sub-users. That is, if a taxpayer has only (one) principal business place (and no additional place of business), he can create 10 sub-users. If a taxpayer has 3 additional places and one principal place of business (i.e. 4 places), then he can create 40 (4 X 10) sub users.

Q) When to freeze the sub-users and the steps to follow?

The e-invoice system gives an option to the taxpayer to freeze the sub-user i.e. Disable the sub-user from using facilities on the e-invoice system.

• Step 1: Click 'Freeze Sub-user' under the option 'User Management' on the left-hand side of the dashboard

• Step 2: Select the sub-user you want to Freeze, the below screen opens up. Now click on the 'Freeze' button appearing at the bottom of the screen. On clicking the 'Freeze' button, the sub-user will no longer be able to access any facilities on the e-invoice system.

Q) How to generate the IRN from different registered business places?

The registered person can generate the IRN from his account from any registered business place. However, he/she needs to enter the address accordingly in the e-invoice form. He/she can also create multiple sub-users and assign to these places and generate the IRN accordingly.

Q) Why are the reports available only for a particular day?

The user is allowed to generate reports on a daily basis. Because of criticality of the system for performance for 24/7 operation, the reports are limited to be generated for a day. The user can change the date and generate the report for that date. Hence, the user is advised to generate reports daily and save in his system.

Bulk Generation Process

Q) What are the Modes of Generation of e-invoice, the taxpayer can use?

Multiple modes can be used for reporting invoices to IRP: • Bulk Upload , • API based, • Mobile app based, • GSP based.

Q) How to generate Bulk e-invoices?

Steps to generate Bulk e-invoice: • Step 1: Login on the e-invoice portal using the username password and entering the captcha code. • Step 2: Select 'Bulk Upload' under 'E-Invoice' appearing on the left-hand side of the dashboard. • Step 3: Choose the saved JSON file from your system and click 'Upload'. After processing the JSON file the system generates a list of e-invoice or error messages.

Q) What is a bulk generation facility and who can use it?

Through this facility, users can upload multiple invoices and generate multiple IRNs at one go. This facility can be used by the taxpayers, who can prepare bulk requests for IRN in a JSON file from their automated system, and upload it on the e-invoice system and generate IRN in one go. This avoids duplicate data entry into the e-invoice system and avoids data entry mistakes also.

Q) How to use the bulk generation facility?

To use the bulk generation facility, one has to prepare the IRN requests through JSON files. This can be done in two ways - a registered taxpayer can prepare the JSON file directly from his automated system. If he is unable to do so, he can use the excel based bulk generation tool available on the e-invoice portal. The invoice and other details need to enter as per the format and JSON file can be generated. This JSON file needs to be uploaded in the e-invoice portal for generation of multiple IRNs. For more details, please refer to the 'user manual of the bulk generation' and 'bulk generation tools' under “Tools” section at E-invoice portal and follow the instructions.

Q) What are the benefits of the bulk generation facility?

Benefits of the bulk generation facility are as follows:

  • Generation of multiple IRN in one go
  • It avoids duplicate keying in of the invoices to generate IRN
  • It avoids the data entry mistakes while keying in for generation of IRN.

API Details

Q) What is API Interface?

API interface is a site-to-site integration of two systems. Using this, the taxpayer can link his IT system with the E-Invoice system to generate IRN directly from his IT solution without keying in the details for e-invoice form in the Portal. This reduces duplicate data entry and eliminates the data entry mistakes.

Q) What are the pre-requisite for using API interface?

API interface is a site-to-site integration of websites for taxpayers with the E-invoice system. API interface can be used by large taxpayers, who need to generate bulk INR per day. However, the taxpayer should meet the following criteria to use the API interface:

  • His invoicing system should be automated with IT solutions.
  • He should be ready to change his IT system to integrate with the E-invoice system as per API guidelines.
  • His system should have an SSL based domain name.
  • His system should have a Static IP Address.
  • He should have a pre-production system to test the API interface.

Q) Where can I get the details of API Integration?

Please go to the site https://einv-apisandbox.nic.in/ for all the details of API Integration

Q) How can the registered person integrate his/her system with an e-invoice system to generate the IRN from his/her system?

The integration between the e-invoice system and the registered person's system can be done through APIs. For availing this facility, the registered person should register the server details of his/her systems (through which he wants to generate the IRN using the APIs of e-invoice system) with e-invoice system. For further details, please go through the user manual.

Q) Where can I get the list of GSPs (GST Suvidha Providers)

The GSP list is available in Search -> GST Suvidha Provider

API Sandbox

Q) What is the URL of the sandbox? What can I do there?

There are two access credentials for APIs. Both credentials/keys required to access the APIs.

• https://einv-apisandbox.nic.in

• On the sandbox, the taxpayer can test the APIs for the e-invoicing.

• Pl see the document and help videos on the help section of https://einvoice1.gst.gov.in portal.

Q) How can I get access to the sandbox portal?

On the sandbox portal, there is an option to login. Click on that and register and login and test the APIs as per the procedure provided there.

Q) What can I do on the sandbox?

E-invoice API sandbox portal is a tool to test the APIs with step-by-step procedure and understand the flow of the APIs. It helps to prepare the payload request with encryption and understand the responses with decryption, etc. It is reached with various information on API usage, schema, mapping, masters, etc. It also has sample codes to understand to build the APIs for consuming.

API Registration

Q) What are the API access credentials for the e-Invoicing System?

There are two access credentials for APIs. Both credentials/keys required to access the APIs.

• Client ID and Client Secret- This is available for GSPs, E-commerce Operators and Company (PAN) with aggregate turnover more than Rs 500.00 Crores. Client credentials are used to reach the e-invoice system to access the APIs. But using these alone, one cannot generate IRNs.

• Username and Password - This is available for the GSTINs. Each GSTIN needs to have this separately to generate IRN. These user credentials are used along with the client credentials to generate the IRN.

Q) Who gets the API Client Credentials for e-invoicing system?

Client ID and Client Secret are available for GSPs, E-commerce Operators and Company (PAN) with aggregate turnover more than Rs 500.00 Crores
