E-Invoicing in Sage X3
Reading Time: 3 minutes

At first, we will see what is E-invoicing?

E-Invoicing is a process in which invoices are validated electronically through GST Network (GSTN) for further use on the common GST portal. In this process, an identification number will be issued for every invoice which is selected for E-invoicing by the Invoice Registration Portal (IRP) to be managed by the GST Network (GSTN). All invoice information will be transferred directly from IRP to the GST portal.

Invoice details will be uploaded via API integration, either directly or through a GST Suvidha Provider (GSP).

Benefits of E-Invoicing:
  • Automating the tax return filing process, saving time and cost for filing the invoices manually.
  • Real time integration with IRP portal/government portal, which generates IRN number and QR code for respective sales invoices in a fraction of seconds.
  • E-invoice details like QR code and IRN number are displayed on the tax Invoice print.
  • Reduces mismatch and data entry errors.
  • Eliminates frauds.
  • Improves account reconciliation.
  • Information about each transaction is stored, helping reduce the surveys required by the tax authorities.

Sage X3 provides an automated solution for filing E-Invoices with a single button click, eliminating the manual filing of invoices. 

Path: Goods and Services Tax à E-Invoicing

As soon as Sales invoice is booked in the system, user can directly do the E-invoicing for specific Sales Invoice from sales invoice screen itself or user can generate E-Invoicing for bulk of invoices from separate E-invoicing screen which is available under GST module in Sage X3. Once, E-invoice is generated by user, IRP system (government portal) returns, IRN number and QR code of the sales invoice which get automatically captured in GST module to the specific Sales Invoice.
