Businesses can start uploading invoices on GSTN from July 24

Businesses can start uploading their sale and purchase invoices generated post-July 1 on the GSTN portal from July 24, a top company official told news agency PTI on Monday.

GSTN Chairman Navin Kumar said, “We are planning to launch the invoice upload utility on the portal on July 24.”

To avoid the month-end rush, businesses can start uploading the invoices on a daily or weekly basis, Kumar added.

The government has introduced the Goods and Services Tax (GST) from July 1. So far, GST Network (GSTN), the company building the IT backbone for the biggest indirect tax reform, has been facilitating registration of businesses.

To ease up the process, the GSTN would put up a video on its portal to assist businesses in uploading invoices. Besides, setting up a call centre to assist taxpayers, the network is looking to double its help desk strength to 400 agents to help it handle queries related to filing returns.

Earlier, GSTN had opened a call centre on June 25 to help tax payers with enrolment related queries via helpline number 0120-4888999.

"We have been reaching out to trade and industry associations telling them that those who have about 10,000 invoices a day, they should upload it on GSTN portal on a daily/weekly basis to avoid last moment rush," Kumar said.

While over 69 lakh excise, VAT and service tax payers had already migrated to the GSTN portal earlier, as many as 4.5 lakh new tax payers have come on board.

The GSTN expects more businesses and traders to register or migrate to the GSTN platform.

Kumar had earlier said that the offline Excel tool can upload 19,000 invoices data on GSTN portal at one go and the process takes just half a minute.

So, if you want to claim input tax credit under the new tax regime, then generate invoices for dealings above Rs 200 and keep invoice records in serial number even if maintained manually.

While uploading invoice on GSTN portal, these things you need to mention:

  • Invoice number and date

  • Customer name

  • Shipping and billing address

  • Customer and taxpayer's GSTIN

  • Place of supply and HSN code.

In addition, the taxable value and discounts and rates of CGST, SGST and IGST would have to be filled, along with item wise details like description, quantity and price.
