E invoice meaning is an invoice that is issued, transmitted, received, processed and stored electronically using specific document formats. Taxpayers who have an annual aggregate turnover of above INR 100 crores in any financial year since 2017-18 have to implement the e-Invoicing mechanism mandatorily for their B2B e invoices. Furthermore, for taxpayers having turnover between INR 50-100 crores, Sandbox testing has been enabled. That means this bracket of taxpayers will also have to implement e-Invoicing soon. In this article, we will discuss about how to register for e invoice:
Taxpayers can check their eligibility for e-Invoicing on the government e billing portal or through Masters India’s ‘E-invoice status of GSTIN’ tool. To check the status through the Government Portal, you can visit - https://einvoice1-trial.nic.in/Others/EinvEnabled Here, add the GSTIN and captcha. Click on ‘Go’ to proceed.
The e-Invoicing status will be then displayed.
To check the e-Invoicing status without captcha and with a single click, you can use Masters India’s ‘E-Invoice Status Of GSTIN’ tool here - https://www.mastersindia.co/e-invoice-status-gstin/ Here, all you have to do is, add the GSTIN and click on ‘Search’.
With a single click, the e-Invoicing status of the entered GSTIN will be displayed.
GST registered taxpayers who have to generate IRN (businesses with turnover more than INR 100 crores in any financial year since 2017-18) can e-register for e-Invoicing on the trial portal with their GSTIN. On the other hand, if a taxpayer is already registered on the e-Way bill portal, he/she can use the EWB login credentials for logging in to the e-Invoice portal. In other words, such taxpayers do not have to re-register on the e-Invoice portal.
Note: Irrespective of the annual turnover, e-Invoicing is not applicable to the following Taxpayers:
