With the Government mandating E-Invoicing from 1st October 2020, a constant question we get asked by our customers is How do I create an electronic invoice?
GSTZen is developing an E-Invoice software that will help you create E-Invoices through an Excel connector or your ERP.
This article provides an answer to the question - How does E-Invoice work? This article explains in detail, how you can create an E-Invoice using GSTZen's Excel connector.
GSTZen supports a variety of methods through which you may generate E-Invoices:
GSTZen Billing application - You may directly punch-in invoices in GSTZen's E-Invoice Billing Application
E-Invoice Excel Connector - Import invoices from Excel
Custom ERPs - Should you have a custom or in-house ERP in your organization, GSTZen will fetch invoices directly from your database and create E-Invoices
GSTZen will also be able to integrate with popular ERPs such as Tally, SAP, Oracle, Microsoft NAV/Dynamics and fetch your invoices directly from your current ERP to create E-Invoices
Kindly register your GST number at the E-Invoicing portal and obtain a Username, Password, Client ID and Client Secret. These credentials are essential to creating an E-Invoice.
