Mandatory linking of e-invoice with e-way bill may cause operational disruption
Mandatory linking of e-invoice with e-way bill, applicable from March 1 for certain types of transactions, may cause disruption in operation and has created confusion among tax planners who are seeking clarification from the authorities, experts said on Sunday. The move was initiated after the mismatch in e-way bills and e-invoice statements was noticed in several cases, they said.
“Blocking the generation of e-way bill without e-invoice/IRN details for B2B (business to business) and B2E transactions for e-invoice enabled taxpayers,” said an advisory issued by the National Informatics Centre (NIC), which manages the indirect tax portal.
Rajarshi Dasgupta, Head Tax at Aquilaw told PTI that the advisory on linking e-invoice with e-way bill will cause “technical difficulty in the hands of exporters having a turnover over Rs 5 crore as there is no time limit relaxation for the generation of e-invoice”.
