e-Invoicing was a win-win move brought by the government to maximize the benefit to every stakeholder involved like the buyers, sellers, or the government.
Before e Invoicing, it was tough for Corporate Businesses to stick to compliance, reporting, and business management for the following reasons
- Multiple reporting
Earlier, there was no fixed format for invoices, which led to confusion and reporting in multiple formats.
- Tough compliance
Businesses were required to do multiple record-keeping for the same task.
- Fake invoices
Due to the absence of any fixed invoicing format, there was a rapid rise in the number of fake invoices.
- Fake ITC Claims
Earlier, it was easy to manipulate invoices, which led to an increase in fake ITC claims.
- Tedious process
Due to the manual intervention, there were more errors and duplications. Also, the process was time-consuming with the involvement of high compliance costs.
Due to the following reasons, the government has introduced an e-Invoicing system to streamline the invoicing process, reducing inefficiencies, turnaround time, and manual errors.
Now, Let us Discuss the Benefits e Invoicing to Corporate Businesses in Detail:
- Real-time tracking of invoices
Electronic Invoicing under GST enables the real-time tracking of invoices. After successfully uploading the invoice on the GST portal, the invoice status is available to all parties.
- Improved compliance
Once your business complies with electronic Invoicing, you need not need to report your invoices in multiple formats. It makes your business regulatory compliant under GST by eliminating manual intervention and making the invoicing process error-free.
- Better accuracy
An e-invoice is prepared online in the same format by all the registered taxpayers making the process easy, convenient, and accurate. The elimination of manual entry under an e-invoice makes the process more accurate and brings transparency into the system.
- Faster ITC claims
With all the records of both parties available in the system, it becomes easy to calculate the tax liability and ITC of a taxpayer. It also eliminates fake ITC claims from the process by expediting the correct ITC to the genuine parties.
In GST e-invoicing, an invoice created on different software is readable by some other ERP software that eliminates the fake invoice from the system.
- Improved security
An e invoicing is an electronic invoice, so it is not easy to manipulate it and also makes it more secure by building a sense of trust amongst the involved parties.
- Faster turnaround time
Online invoicing brings the turnaround time much lesser than the paper invoice. It eliminates unnecessary movement time and improves payment efficiency with digital payment modes.
- Saves time and cost
An online invoice can be shared with a buyer in seconds through various channels, which helps in saving resources and time for corporate businesses. It also eliminates the process of sending an invoice through post or courier.
