Auto-Population Of E-Invoice Details In GSTR-1

The CBIC announced that beginning August 1st, 2023, taxpayers with annual revenue over INR 5 crores must also begin using the e-Invoicing process.

Taxpayers must now generate invoices using their internal systems and submit them electronically to the Invoice Registration Portal (IRP). The IRP will check the accuracy of the information on these invoices, create an Invoice Reference Number (IRN) and a Quick Response (QR) code, and then electronically return the signed e-Invoice to the taxpayer.

The information from the e-Invoices will automatically populate the appropriate tables of the taxpayer’s GSTR-1, according to a November 13, 2020, announcement from the GSTN.

Additionally, the government has made it possible to obtain these facts (auto-population Of e-invoice details in GSTR-1) and the status of auto-population in an Excel file.
