 e-Invoice is a concept in which all B2B invoices are electronically uploaded by the supplier and authenticated by invoice registration portal (IRP) with an IRN and QR code. The supplier should print the IRN and QR code on the invoice before issuing it to the buyer. Currently, e-invoicing is applicable for businesses with an annual turnover of 50 crores or above in the previous financial year.

What is GePP-On?

To help businesses to generate e-invoices, NIC has released an application known as ‘GePP-On’. To generate e-invoices using GePP-on application, you need to enter the invoice details in the form designed in the application.

The efforts to release of GePP-On application for e-invoice generation is a welcome move, not only for businesses that are already enabled for e-invoicing but also would benefit many small businesses in the coming days, when more businesses are brought under the ambit of e-invoicing.

Is GePP-On a better choice than business management/accounting software?

The availability of e-invoice generations tools like GePP-On and the existence of business management/accounting software might put you in confusion, whether to use to e-invoice tools or business software with e-invoice generation capability. To help you make a better choice, we have put across the business type to whom GePP-On will be useful and how business management/accounting software can help.

Business type to whom GePP-On will be useful

For businesses with fewer invoices, this will be helpful since they can generate e-invoices without going for any API integration. If you have a few invoices per day, you can manually mention the invoice details on GePP-On and generate an e-invoice. However, businesses should also make a note that this tool will only help in generating e-invoices. Managing books of accounts should be taken care of using accounting software or any other way that you are currently using.

How can business management/accounting software help?

Apart from e-invoice generation tools like GePP-On, there is business management/accounting software that comes with fully connected capabilities to generate e-invoices and e-way bills. Such accounting software not only helps you generate e-invoice instantly but also plays a key role in managing books of accounts in an integrated manner, ensuring your books and compliance are always in sync.

Using accounting or business management software, the only thing you need to do is record invoices. Based on the invoice details, your accounts are prepared, inventory is updated, and compliance data is ready. Thus, your invoicing, accounting, inventory, and compliance are always in sync with each other. When this happens, you can be assured that your financial reports give you a wholesome view of your business
