What is the Problem with Traditional e-Invoice Generation?

Tell me and I’ll forget; show me and I may remember; involve me and I’ll understand.

Well, staying true to the above-quoted maxim let me involve you in the real-time problems of the traditional e-Invoicing methods used. And what would be better than an example you won’t forget!

Let us take a case of a businessman ‘Jethalal’.

Jethalal owns a business whose annual aggregate turnover exceeds 500 Crore. Hence, he must practice e-Invoicing.

For the e-Invoicing process, the accountant of Jethalal (let us call him Natu Kaka) has to follow the following steps:

  • Manually create the e-Invoices on the Government Invoice Registration Portal (IRP) corresponding to each of his invoices generated in his Tally software.
  • The format of the schema in which the IRP portal takes the input is fixed. Hence the accountant (Natu Kaka) has to upload every single invoice in the prescribed format on the Government Servers multiple times. Well, it’s a tedious task!
  • Natu Kaka has to be aware of all the GST Compliance rules while uploading his data. As the compliance rules are dynamic & keep on changing he has to also keep himself up-to-date with the latest GST Compliance Rules.

Ab Akele Natu Kaka kya kya karenge!  🙁

In this process, where a business has to deal with bulk invoices there are some of the following issues which he faces:
  • High probability of error-introduction due to manual entries of invoices
  • Time-consuming task
  • Constant tracking of ever-changing GST laws
  • Higher costs are incurred as you need separate solutions for GST Returns Filing, E-Way Billing & e-Invoice generation
  • Chance of attracting heavy penalties if your solution is not compliant with the latest GST Laws
  • Your existing solution does not integrate well with your existing ERP (Tally in most cases)
Ab Jethalal Kare Toh Kare Kya, Bole Toh Bole Kya ?

But you need not worry at all about these issues.

Because we at GSTHero have rolled out an amazing solution that will address all the problems a business could face during the e-Invoice generation in Tally & e-way billing.
