Convert Estimate to Invoice – LEDGERS Guide

Creating an estimate and obtaining client/customer consent before issuing an GST invoice is a good sales and business practice. Under GST regulations, a business becomes liable for remitting the GST amount mentioned on the invoice on the issuance of invoice, irrespective of payment status. Hence, if goods/services are not supplied, then it is prudent to issue an estimate, receive payment and then issue a tax invoice.
