Tax payers with turnover above Rs. 5 Cr are enabled for testing on Sandbox. In this regard, IRP has sent a message to taxpayers as below:-
You are one of the taxpayers who is supposed to register the invoices on NIC-IRP portal as your AATO for your PAN is above Rs. 5 Cr. The government may issue a notification with respect to the date of e-Invoicing shortly for taxpayers with AATO between Rs 5 Cr – Rs 20 Cr. Hence, this mail is sent to assist you in preparedness for e-Invoicing.
Presently, you are enabled for testing of the Invoice registration process using API on Sandbox environment at https://einv-apisandbox.nic.in with help of your GSP/ ERP / Supplier’s or Buyer’s ERP system. So, please test the e-Invoice APIs by registering in the sandbox tool provided.
Please note, direct API integration will not be provided for tax payers with annual turn over less than Rs. 500 Crores.
There are other modes of e-Invoice generation which do not require API integration such as Bulk Tools and GePP-On tools.
GePP-On tool is a browser based online system which is available for registering the invoices. You may login to this user-friendly system using your e-Invoice / e-Waybill portal credentials and enter the invoice details and register at the click of the button. This does not require API integration. GePP-On may also be downloaded to your registered mobile number and used for generating e-Invoices (Mobile app is available only on Production system). This facility is available only in the production system.
You may download the excel based tools from the portal , enter the invoices in this tool, generate the JSON file and upload in the e-Invoice portal. Again, this does not require any API Integration. This facility is available only in the production system.
Wish you all the best,
Thanks and Regards,
