Indian officials continue to provide updates to the e-invoicing reform that partially enters into force in less than a month’s time on 1 October. Most recently, new release notes have been published on the API Sandbox web page on 8 September 2020.
The changes introduced include for example:
• E-Commerce Operators (ECO) have been enabled to register and test the APIs in the sandbox system. A brief note on operations of e-commerce operators has been published.
• Taxpayers who have an aggregate turnover of their business exceeding Rs 500.00 Crores during any of the previous 3 financial years of the GST regime, have been enabled to self-register with the e-invoice system.
• ‘Generate EWB by IRN’ has been improved to enable the generation of e-Waybills in case of export by passing the address of the port from where it is getting exported later.
• A mobile app for verification of QR code and signed eInvoice file has been released.
