Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)

In GST, Electronic Invoice or E-Invoice is basically the registration of invoice particulars on Invoice Reference Portal (IRP) maintained by the govt. to obtain the Invoice Reference Number (IRN) with QR Code. Newly inserted clause 4 in Rule 48 of the CGST Rules 2017 specifies certain specified taxpayers are required to upload invoice particular in Form GST INV-01 and generate IRN with QR Code. Because of the standard e-invoice schema, the exchange of invoice data between buyer & supplier can be done electronically.

As per the new working model, the business would continue to generate invoices on their own ERPs, accounting software, or any of the billing software in their perspective manner. The generation of e-Invoice would be done by the taxpayer. Once the invoice is generated, it would be reported to the Invoice Registration Portal (IRP) of GST. The IRP will validate the invoice details, generate a unique Invoice Reference Number (IRN) along with QR Code, and digitally signed document. IRP will return the e-invoice to the taxpayer along with IRN & QR Code.

IRN is required to be generated for the following types of document:

  • Invoices
  • Credit Notes
  • Debit Notes

The Detailed description of each mandatory or optional field and the names of the technical fields are specified in the E-Invoice Schema (Form GST INV-01) as per Rule 48 of the CGST Rules.

The maximum number of line items supported by an e-invoice is 1000.

Yes, it is possible using the offline utility of the Govt.

Hostbooks application allows to users bulk-uploading of the invoices to generate IRNs & QR Codes in one go.

However, reporting to the IRP portal and generation of IRN will be done one by one only but such process is too fast and it will not be visible to the user.

Currently, the following modes are available to generate e-invoice:

  • API based (integration with Taxpayer's System directly).
  • API based (integration with Taxpayer's System through GSP/ASP)
  • Free Offline Utility ('Bulk Generation Tool', downloadable from IRP).

Hostbooks is one of the GST Suvidha Providers (GSP) having separate accessibility of the IRP which enables users to generate e-invoice seamlessly without any Hassel.

No, we can't cancel an e-Invoice partially, it has to be canceled fully. The cancellation request must be sent within 24 hours from the time of reporting the invoice to IRP. Once IRN (Invoice Reference Number) is canceled, GSTR-1 will also be automatically updated with 'canceled' status.

Yes, it can. But the dealers have to issue a revised invoice against the invoice that has already been generated between the mentioned periods. The revised invoice must be issued within one month from the date the registration certificate has been issued.

No, it is optional to the user. However, IRN is already embedded in the QR code that needs to be printed on the invoice.

Yes, a QR code that contains the particulars of the Invoice and IRN needs to be printed on the invoice. A QR Code must be printed on the invoice with a clear display for better usability.

The QR code will consist of the following key particulars of the e-invoice:

  • GSTIN of Supplier
  • GSTIN of Recipient
  • Invoice number as given by Supplier
  • Date of generation of invoice
  • Invoice value (taxable value and gross tax)
  • Number of line items
  • HSN Code of the main item (line item having highest taxable value)
  • Unique IRN (Invoice Reference Number/hash)
  • IRN Generation Date

Though there is no concept of revision in the GST return invoice, you can change the invoice through a supplementary invoice, debit, or credit notes.

A dynamic QR code allows users to change the destination address with the redirected page referred by the QR code. It actually lets the users do this without reprinting the code. Unlike dynamic QR codes, static QR codes point to a fixed address.

QR Code of E-Invoice

This QR code is to be generated from the IRP portal. This QR code is required to be generated by Notified registered persons in case of B2B & Export supplies. This will be generated in the process of e-Invoicing at the IRP portal.

Dynamic QR Code

The QR Code is for the purpose of making payment by the unregistered person/Consumer to such registered person who is making the B2C supply, using UPI-based payment Apps by scanning the QR Code. This would be generated by the supplier himself using the software.
