Invoice processing holds a significant overhead for most businesses. Different business sectors have different way of approaching for invoicing their clients. If the invoice is late, wrongly interpreted or lack of necessary information may lead to transactional error or delay in payment. If the invoice is not precise, itemising product sales or hours of work undertaken, your invoice may be challenged by the client.
Government of India announced the adoption of electronic invoicing (e-invoicing) from January 2020. Initially, this will on trial, and voluntary, but will in due course be a mandatory requirement for all B2B (Business To Business) invoices.
