E-invoicing Mandate – 50 Cr and above from April 1, 2021


In the third phase of e-invoicing rollout, the government has mandated e-Invoicing for entities with a turnover of 50 Cr or above from 1st April 2021. This will make e-invoicing applicable for all business-to-business transactions.

The government initially rolled out e-Invoicing for entities with 500 crores and more turnover from October 1 2020 and later extended to entities with 100 crores and above from January 1, 2021.

The government had earlier planned to extend e-Invoicing to all entities from April 1, 2021, but has refrained, since this would affect small entities gravely. Notification no. 05/2021-Central Tax dated 08.03.2021 brought it into effect.

e-Invoicing is aimed at bringing in more transparency in sales reporting, minimizing errors and mismatches, automating data entry work, and improving compliance. This will help prevent tax evasion once it is made mandatory for small and medium firms in phases.
