Businesses can upload invoices on GSTN portal from July 24 onwards

New Delhi, July 18 (KNN) Businessmen will be able to upload their sale and purchase invoices generated after GST implementation on the Goods & Services Tax Network (GSTN) portal from July 24 onwards.

So far GSTN portal has been facilitating registration of businesses.

Earlier, GSTN had introduced an offline Excel format for businesses to maintain their invoice records and this can be uploaded on the portal from July 24 onward.

According to a media report, GSTN Chairman Navin Kumar said there are plans 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 month-end rush.

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.

It is also to be noted that the central agency will also put up a video on its portal to assist people in uploading invoices.

A call center desk has been set up to assist taxpayers regarding the GST.
