Issuing Invoice

A registered taxable person under GST supplying goods or service is required to issue a tax invoice at the time of supply of goods and/or service. Tax invoice under GST must mention the details of the supplier and recipient, the description, quantity and value of goods, the tax charged and any other particulars as may be required. Further, where any supply is made for a consideration, every person who is liable to pay tax for such supply is required to prominently indicate in all documents relating to assessment, tax invoice and other like documents, the amount of tax which will form part of the price at which such supply is made.

After issue of invoice at the time of supply, a registered taxable person can issue a revised tax invoice against the invoice already issued.
