Since the introduction of GST in India, GST officials have been more vigilant to find a way to stop tax evasion in India. There have been instances where tax fraudsters were caught using fake invoices to evade taxes and claim additional ITC. This was possible because there was no proper mechanism to deal with this situation at the national level. So, e-invoicing under GST was born! So, e-invoice generation will be combined with ITC Claim. This could lead to lower tax issues not too distant.

India introduces E-Invoicing

The government has an E-invoicing mandate in place to prevent tax evasions. Businesses with a yearly turnover greater than a "yet to be decided" amount will be required to submit a digital statement to either a government portal or the Goods and Services Tax portal site.

To streamline the creation of invoices and reduce the compliance burden, the government established a committee that includes fundamental and state tax officials and the GST Network Chief Executive.


Businesses would be provided with the application, which can be connected to the GST portal site to create an E-invoice to facilitate the assimilation and use of the E-invoice system to GST. Based on the bill's value, the threshold could be increased. 

JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) is the format used to send data to NIC (Invoice Registration Portal). In JSON files, each data point is assigned a parameter name. The value is then reported against that parameter name. A comma separates two data points for E.g.

The actual JSON for e-invoicing is more complex and can contain multiple structures. Each parameter may have its own validation rules.


Fast Delivery

A digital statement will be required by businesses to either create one on a government portal or for the Goods and Services Tax portal.

For every E-invoice generated, businesses will receive an exceptional number if they turnover above the threshold.

This extraordinary number could be matched by all invoices reported in the earnings return and taxes paid.

This is how you create an e-invoice.nic.in and GST payments.
