Since its inception, GST has gone through several deferrals and relaxations, many of which were due to glitches in the GST portal. But the deferrals have also been a blessing in disguise for tax evaders, who have used these deferrals to their maximum benefit. In this article, we will discuss e way bill system, e way bill for exhibitions, e way bill for multiple invoices and more.

Yes, an e-way bill is required for multiple invoices. An e-way bill is a document that needs to be generated for the movement of goods worth more than a specified value from one place to another. It is required under the Goods and Services Tax (GST) regime in India.
When multiple invoices are being transported together in a single vehicle or conveyance, a consolidated e-way bill can be generated for all the invoices. This consolidated e-way bill will contain details of all the invoices being transported, such as the invoice numbers, amounts, and GST information.
The e-way bill is generated electronically on the e-way bill portal or through SMS, and it contains information about the consignor, consignee, goods being transported, and the transportation vehicle. It is mandatory for the person in charge of the conveyance to carry the e-way bill along with the goods during transportation.

According to the rules of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) in India, an e-way bill is required for the movement of goods when the distance exceeds 10 Kms from the place of the supplier to the place of the recipient.
If the movement of goods is within a radius of 10 Kms, the generation of an e-way bill is not mandatory. However, it's important to note that the specific rules and regulations regarding the e-way bill may vary among different countries and regions. It's advisable to refer to the relevant tax authorities or legislation in your specific jurisdiction to obtain accurate and up-to-date information regarding e-way bill requirements.
