According to reports in the media today, the GST Council had recommended reducing the threshold for generation of e-invoices to Rs.5 Crore with effect from January 1, 2023, however the government has not implemented the recommendation.Taxpayers are uncertain since no notification has been issued in the matter.
To clarify, as per Notification no. 17/2022-Central Tax dated 01.08.2022, e-invoicing is now mandatory for registered individuals with an aggregate turnover of over Rs. 10 crore in any previous financial year starting from 2017-18 onwards."
