India: Webinar on e-invoicing under GST as from 1 April 2020

The government recently announced 1 April 2020 as the date of implementation of the e-invoicing system for B2B transactions for businesses with an aggregate turnover exceeding INR 1bn.

Considering that the voluntary system will commence from 1 January 2020, the GSTN has also released the following documents in the public domain:

  • Presentations made by the GSTN team at various workshops across India.
  • Additional and updated FAQs on the e-invoice concept, flow and schema.
  • List of application program interfaces (APIs) and the proposed methodology of interaction with the Invoice Registration Portal (IRP).
  • General JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) sample of e-invoice payload sent to IRP.
  • JSON schema for e-invoice.

Changes have been made to the previous clarification based on industry feedback, and various aspects are expected to evolve further.

This development underlines the government’s aim to introduce a mandatory e-invoicing system from
1 April 2020
onwards. As this is a major business change, the industry should start preparing on an immediate basis to meet the deadline.

Given this background, we would like to invite you to a webinar on the key updates based on the documents released by the GSTN as well as the next steps.

Details of the webinar are provided below.
