Generating Bulk IRN

E-invoice – JSON Schema

Most businesses have multiple invoices, and uploading them one after the other to the Invoice Registration Portal (IRP) is tedious.

That is when a bulk generation comes to your aid by letting you upload multiple invoices simultaneously. The portal then verifies all invoices, generates a unique invoice reference number (IRN), signs your invoice digitally, and generates a QR code.

This blog will guide you through the bulk IRN generation process across the e-invoice portal.

  1. To generate Bulk Invoice reference numbers, select the sub option ‘Bulk Upload’ under ‘e-invoice’.
  2. Click ‘Browse’, and the system will request you to select the JSON file. Next, you must upload the IRN request file (the maximum file size for upload is 2 MB) to the e-invoice system
  3. Click “Confirm” for the system to process the JSON file, generate the e-invoices and display the 64-character length IRN for each request.

You can export your e-invoices in an excel file by clicking on the ‘Download Excel” button.

Note:

  1. The IRN shall be unique to each invoice and for a taxpayer’s entire financial year in the GST System.
  2. The system will update the invoice details to the e-waybill system and create Part-A of your e-way bill using this data. After which, you will have to attach only the vehicle number in Part B of your e-way bill document.
  3. The hash computed by the e-invoice system will become the IRN (Invoice Reference Number of 64 character length) of your e-invoice.
  4. The JSON must conform to the published e-invoice schema(standards) and have the mandatory parameters. The optional parameters can vary according to the business needs of the supplier.
  5. Always use the latest version of the “Bulk IRN Generation tool” on the e-invoice portal as there are chances of the tool getting updated in eh future.
