2.17.2 – GST eInvoice/IRN generation


July 03, 2021

GST e-Invoice/IRN generation

Objective : To enable GST eInvoice/IRN generation from the application itself.

Feature: In Sales –> Invoice listing and Invoice Edit pages, a button labelled Generate e-Invoice will now be available. Bulk generation is possible from Invoice Listing page, whereas per Invoice generation is possible from the Invoice Edit page.

Prerequisites to make use of this Utility:

  • Enterprise must have
    • a GSTIN & it must be captured as part of Registration details of the Enterprise Profile.
    • a valid GST Portal credentials
  • Invoice generated must have
    • valid HSN Codes assigned for their line Items.
    • Customer GSTIN/UIN properly updated in the Registration details of the Party Profile.
    • applied valid set of taxes for the Invoice, based on the States of the Enterprise & the Customer. i.e., the CGST + SGST or IGST profile must be appropriately applied. (This will be assisted by the application in subsequent releases)

Authenticate GST portal for first time
Bulk-generate eInvoices

The Bulk generation feature will be available for Invoices generated within the last 24 hours. IRN generation will be possible only for invoices fully satisfies the validations mentioned by the GST Portal.


IRN generation from Invoice Edit page

Once an IRN is successfully generated, related details – IRN, eInvoice QR, Acknowledgement No, Acknowledgement Date will be included in the Invoice Print.


IRN cancellation feature too will be available for IRNs generated successfully for 24 hours from the Invoice Date in the Invoice Edit page only. Thus IRN cancellation can be only one at a time.

Invoice Nos once subjected to IRN process cannot be re-used which is possible otherwise.

Other related changes

  • Indian States listing in addresses across the application is now handled in a controlled manner, i.e., it has been changed to Drop-down select option. This is to make them compliant with the GST State-code systems.
  • Sales Return will now result in a Credit Note for the Customer & a Note Voucher once the Note is approved (instead of the erstwhile wrong behavior of resulting in a Purchase Voucher)

Other changes

  • Delivery Address section in Invoice/DC now has a Contact person that will be printed in bold. It will be auto-filled with the Party name, but is Editable.
  • Invoice/DC Item Particulars tabulation has been re-aligned to pack information better
  • GRN Item Particulars tabulation has been re-aligned to pack information better
