For businesses to have a smooth transition to the e-invoicing system, it is extremely imperative that your business management software is integrated with the IRP portal. As you may be aware, Tally is a recognized GSP (GST Suvidha Provider) and thus, TallyPrime uses the GSP route to communicate directly with the IRP.

  • You can send your invoices through TallyPrime directly to the IRP

  • Once they are authenticated by the IRP, TallyPrime will receive the IRN directly from the IRP and convert it into a QR code along with other invoice info and update your invoices accordingly.

  • You can then simply print the QR code on your invoice. IRN can also be printed optionally.

  • TallyPrime will also help generate an e-way bill number for applicable transactions and record it in your invoice by receiving the info directly from the IRP.

Therefore, you will never need to go out of the product for e-invoicing!
