New GST rules: What has changed for companies with more than ₹5 crore turnover from today?
GST rule change: From 1 August 2023, it will be mandatory for all the businesses with turnover of ₹5 crore or above to produce e-invoice
As per the GST guidelines, it will be mandatory for companies with a B2B transaction value of ₹5 crore, to produce an electronic invoice. Earlier, companies with an annual revenue of ₹10 crore or above were required to generate e-invoice.
The notification was released for the lower threshold businesses by the CBIC in May. The move will help in boosting collections and compliance under the GST.
GST e-invoice rule: A boon for MSME sector
Experts believe that change in e-invoice rule and inclusion of companies with lesser turnover can help boosting the MSME entities.
"For companies e-invoicing is a boon rather than a bane as suppliers who are e-invoicing compliant result in proper flow of input tax credit and reduce the churn around credit issues," Jaising added.
Another expert, AMRG & Associates Senior Partner Rajat Mohan said that phased implementation of e-invoicing has helped in reducing disruptions, improving compliances and increase in revenue.
"Inclusion of MSME sector in the e-invoicing regime would benefit the overall business ecosystem by reducing costs, rationalising errors, ensuring faster invoice processing, and also limiting commercial disputes in the long term," Mohan added.
Reducing the threshold limit for issue of e-invoice for B2B transactions from ₹10 crore to ₹5 crore will helpt the GST department in raising revenue and tackling tax invasion. Other than this, the government has also started using robust data analytics and artificial intelligence to identify and track risky taxpayers. To formulate a much targeted intervention, it has also begun sharing of data with partner law enforcement agencies.
