CBIC Clarified There Is No Proposal To Reduce E-invoicing Threshold Limit To Rs 5 Cr w.e.f January 01, 2023

As per the recent tweet by the CBIC, news reports have appeared in the media today suggesting that GST Council has recommended reducing the threshold for the generation of e-invoices to Rs.5 cr w.e.f. January 01, 2023, the Government has yet to issue a notification in the matter, giving rise to uncertainties amongst the taxpayers.


It is clarified that presently, e-invoicing has been made mandatory for registered persons having aggregate turnover of more than Rs. 10 crores in any preceding financial year from 2017-18 onwards (Refer Notification no. 17/2022-Central Tax dated August 01, 2022).



There is no proposal before the Government, at present, to reduce this threshold limit to Rs 5 Crore with effect from January 01, 2023, as no such recommendation has been made by GST Council as yet.
