New Update GST E-Invoice Reporting System in IndiaOnce again, short notice changes have been made to the GST e-invoice reporting – just 2 months before reaching the October deadline

As many of us expected, the Indian government has once again made last-minute changes to the new GST mandate for e-invoicing in India – just two months before the mandatory electronic invoicing is due to come into force.

Update to our Blog of 10 February 2020

On 30 July 2020, the Indian government issued two Central Tax Notifications that change the GST e-invoice reporting in India – both technically and in its scope for taxpayers.


Changes to the new Indian GST E-Invoicing Mandate:

The deadline of the mandate remains unchanged. It will enter into force on 1 October 2020.

The deadline of the mandate remains unchanged. It will enter into force on 1 October 2020.

The taxpaying sectors that are exempted from the tax (insurance companies, banks, the freight transport authority [road haulage in freight transport], passenger transport services and multiplex cinema admissions) remain the same.

Experiences from various e-invoicing mandates around the world and the Indian GST reform of 2017 onwards show that this may not be the last change to GST e-invoice reporting.

Even if you have just ‘slipped through the net’, with the new threshold we recommend that you now prepare your company proactively for GST e-invoice compliance – instead of waiting for the next official changes that will force you to prepare for the mandate at short notice.

We are looking forward to your message.
