Disclaimer :- e-Invoice Reporting and IRN Generation

1.  Please be informed that e-Invoice reporting and IRN (Invoice Reference Number) generation services on all IRPs, including the 4 new IRPs, are provided free of charge. There are no fees associated with using these essential services for generating and reporting e-Invoices. The IRPs are mandated to offer e-Invoice reporting and IRN generation as part of their compliance process, ensuring that taxpayers can avail these services without incurring any additional cost.

2.  However, we would like to highlight that any additional Value-Added Services (VAS) offered by IRPs are independent of the standard e-Invoice reporting and IRN generation and may have associated charges. GSTN has no role in the provision or pricing of such Value-Added Services.

3.  Before availing any additional VAS, we advise taxpayers to review the details of the services, data security and their associated costs as offered by the respective IRPs.

4.  Additionally, in addition to the four new IRPs, e-Invoice reporting and IRN generation services are also provided by NIC-IRP. Users can access these services at https://einvoice1.gst.gov.in and https://einvoice2.gst.gov.in.

5 . For any support related to the standard e-Invoice reporting and IRN generation services, taxpayers can reach out to GSTN or their respective IRPs.
