Changes in e-Way Bill After E-Invoicing

How is an e-Way Bill linked with e-Invoicing?

There are two sections to every e-Way Bill.

One of the components comprises information about the invoice, including the invoice number, HSN codes, delivery address, and GSTINs for the recipient and supplier, among other things.

Contrarily, the other portion includes transporter data such as vehicle number, transporter ID, and much more. E-deployment invoicing will also affect the e-Way Bill system.

Instead of registering again, current users of the e-way bill site can log in to the e-invoice portal using the same credentials.

E-way bills will be automatically filled out from the e-invoicing portal once e-invoicing is implemented, as opposed to the present system.

The Parts A and B of the e-way Bill will be automatically filled in after the e-invoice has been successfully validated, provided that some optional details (transporter ID and mode of transport) are amended.

Understanding the e-Way Bill and E-Invoice

The GST system includes the e-Way Bill as a crucial element.

Essentially, it consists of two parts: The supplier’s GSTIN, the invoice number, the HSN codes, the delivery location, and other information are all included in Part A.

Contrarily, Part B contains information on the transporter, such as the vehicle’s identification number and transporter ID.

Facilities Provided on the E-Invoice Portal

The e-invoice site offers the following features:

  • Creating an e-Way Bill using the IRN: 

On the e-invoice portal, a user must input the IRN to create an e-Way Bill.

  • e-Way Bill bulk generation:

The government offers bulk generation services for companies that do numerous daily transactions.

  • Print e-Way Bill:

After choosing the print EWB option from the e-way bill menu, a user needs to enter the e-Way Bill number.

e-Way Bill Integration with E-invoicing

The main goal of integrating the e-Way Bill and e-invoicing is to automate and streamline the process.

The creation of e-Way bills is halted if the taxpayer hasn’t submitted two or more consecutive GST returns.

The following advantages result from the two systems integration:

  • Simplifies and reduces manual intervention during the process
  • Assures precision
  • Guarantees taxpayers’ ease of compliance

How do we generate e-Way Bills when the system of e-Invoicing is implemented?

The method used to create an e-Way Bill after the e-invoicing will remain unchanged. However, there will be an additional facility to generate e-way bills from IRN.

A user can take the actions listed below:

  • Attach the invoice to the portal for registering invoices.
  • Following a successful validation by the GSTN, the IRP will provide a unique number called an invoice reference number and print a QR code on the invoice.
  • The e-way bill site, where section 12 of the e-invoice schema (e-way bill details) is published, will receive this data. E-way invoices from IRN are generated using the APIs.
  • After logging in, a user should enter the IRN of the invoice for which an e-way bill is required and log out.
  • If the required info is changed in the e-invoice, Parts A and B will automatically fill in.
  • Choose “Submit.” A JSON or PDF file of the generated e-way Bill can be downloaded if there are no flaws.

E-invoice changes: Effects on the e-Way Bill

There is currently no clause that addresses how the e-invoice system will affect the e-Way Bill in the event of amendments.

The e-Way Bill also cancels upon cancellation of the e-invoice. However, authorities are striving to put a mechanism in place to address this problem.

How does the implementation of e-Invoicing impact businesses?

The goal of integrating the e-invoicing and e-way bill systems is to simplify and automate the process as a whole.

The government has additionally connected the filing of GST returns with e-way bills.

For taxpayers with two or more consecutive GST returns that are still unfiled, the generation of e-way bills will be prohibited.

The following advantages for the firms will result from these integrations:

  • Effortless and straightforward compliance process for taxpayers
  • Automating the process to reduce manual efforts which eventually ensures accuracy.

FAQs

Is an e-way Bill required after the e-invoice?

For both intrastate and interstate transportation of products, an E-Way Bill is essential, or an E-Way Bill is required for an E-Invoice. The provider is often the one who develops the E-Way Bill.

However, if the recipient or carrier is registered for GST, they may also produce it.

When is an e-way bill generated after the invoice date?

It is entirely up to the taxpayers to decide whether they wish to generate an E-way bill at the same time as an E-invoice or at a later time using the IRN as a reference. But if an E-invoice isn't generated where it's needed to be, the E-Waybill will be ineffective.

Invoices and bills can be generated before the movement of goods, meaning the dates on these documents don't necessarily have to match up. This is because there's no rule stating that these have to be generated at the time of the movement of goods.

Is the e-way bill date and invoice date the same?

The e-way Bill's generation date is known as the e-way bill date. It need not match the date on the invoice.
