Some news reports have appeared in media today suggesting that though @GST_Council has recommended reducing threshold for generation of e-invoice to Rs.5 cr wef 1.1.23, the Govt. has yet to issue notification in the matter, giving rise to uncertainties amongst the taxpayers.

It is clarified that presently, e-invoicing has been made mandatory for registered persons having aggregate turnover more than Rs. 10 crore in any preceding financial year from 2017-18 onwards (Refer Notification no. 17/2022-Central Tax dated 01.08.2022).

There is no proposal before the Government, at present, to reduce this threshold limit to Rs 5 Crore with effect from 01.01.2023, as no such recommendation has been made by GST Council as yet.
