Before proceeding to the subsequent steps, you should know that the e-invoicing portal registration is only available to taxpayers with annual revenue of more than 5 crores. However, the taxpayers with lesser turnover can register in the e-invoicing portal once it opens up.

Step 5: When you receive the OTP, submit it and click the “Validate” button at the bottom of the page.

Wait a few minutes while the site checks to see if your taxpayer information is correct. Once the e-invoicing portal validates that you have a yearly turnover of more than 5 crores, you will proceed to the next step.
