E-Way Bill is an electronically generated document comprising of invoice and associated shipment details. A unique number is generated for each E-Way Bill. It is mandatory to generate E-Way Bill on all transactions across India where non-exempted good is being transported inter or intra state and is valued above 50,000. Government introduced E-Way Bill to effectively monitor movement of goods for taxation purposes without impacting the movement itself which was the case with earlier monitoring mechanism.
Impact of E-Way Bill
E-Way Bill compliance can have a profound impact on business as a whole – becoming an operational nightmare if not taken care of properly with heavy penalty (10,000 or amount equivalent to tax on invoice, whichever is higher) in case of non-compliance. It therefore becomes crucial to consider how to realign processes and stakeholders and form a compliance strategy, so the minimal impact is seen.
