Since its introduction in 2020, GST E-invoicing in India has come a long way. Initially, e-invoicing was applicable solely for large enterprises with annual aggregate turnover of INR 500 crore or more.
But after the new mandates in April 2021 and 2022, enterprises with annual aggregate turnovers of 50 crores and 20 crores had to comply with GST e-invoicing norms. More recently, since October 2022 and January 2023, businesses with an annual aggregate turnover of 10 crores and 05 crores are now required to comply with the same.
After the April 2021 decisions, GST e-invoicing became mandatory for micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs). For a time, there was a great scramble as business solutions used by them at the time we simply ill-equipped to do so. Still are.
Even today, there are few ERP software or business management systems that provide in-built capabilities for handling e-invoicing. At times, their legacy software isn’t compatible with the available GST e-invoicing software, leading to added costs of buying complete new software just for it.
That’s exactly where the users of SAP Business One gained an edge and continue to do so. SAP B1s unmatched customizability and compatibility with third-party software such as add-ons ensured that SAP Business One user only needed to integrate an add-on to add all functionalities that would help them immensely in e-invoicing and e-way billing.
One such add-on has been one of our own making – GST One.
