The GST e-invoicing system was implemented from October 1, 2020, for businesses with annual turnover of Rs 500 crore or more. It was later extended to businesses with over Rs 100 crore turnover from January 1, 2021.

Under e-invoicing, taxpayers have to generate invoices on their internal systems (ERP/accounting/billing software) and then report it online to Invoice Reference Portal (IRP).

The IRP validates the information provided in the invoices and returns the digitally signed e-invoices with a unique Invoice Reference Number (IRN) along with a QR code to the taxpayer.
