How to report Bill to and Ship to addresses for an e-Invoice

While creating an e-invoice, it is not necessary that the goods are sent to the registered address of the buyer (Bill to and ship to addresses are different). They may request the delivery to a different location. In that case, the bill to and ship to addresses would be different. Therefore, the following combinations of addresses are to be used in generating an e-invoice-

  •  Supplier – Registered address of the supplier
  • Dispatch from – Address from which the goods are being sent/supplied
  • Buyer – Bill to address (registered address of the buyer
  • Ship to – Address to which the goods are sent
