With e-invoice concept being notified and expected to be introduced by 1St October,2020, how does e-invoice system works is the question of the hour. In simple words, e-invoicing is a system through which business to business (B2B) transactions are authenticated electronically by GSTN for further use on the common GSTN portal.
In the processed system, the moment you create an invoice for your customer, it should be uploaded to IRP (Invoice Registration Portal) where the validation will be done, and a unique number called IRN (Invoice Reference Number) will be issued.
An invoice remains valid only if it has IRN and it is validated by the IRP (Invoice Registration Portal). Here IRP is a designated portal designed to accept, validate and authenticate the invoice
