GSTN portal to be ready for invoice uploading from July 24
17-Jul-2017

Businesses can start uploading their sale and purchase invoices generated post-July 1 on the GSTN portal from July 24, a top company official said today.The Goods and Services Tax has kicked in from July 1 and so far, the GST Network, the company handling the IT backbone for the new tax regime, has been facilitating registration of businesses.“We plan to launch the invoice upload utility on the portal on July 24 so that businesses can come forward and start uploading the invoices on a daily or weekly basis to avoid a month-end rush,” GSTN Chairman Navin Kumar told PTI. Generating invoices for dealings above Rs 200 and keeping invoice records in serial number even if maintained manually, are pre-requisites for claiming input tax credit under the GST regime.The GSTN had last month launched an offline Excel format for businesses to keep their invoice records and from July 24 this Excel sheet can be uploaded on the portal.Kumar said GSTN would put up a video on its portal to assist businesses in uploading invoices.Besides, a call centre help desk has been set up to assist taxpayers regarding any query they might have about the new tax regime.
