The e-invoicing system is being implemented in stages. The National Informatics Center was the first designated invoice registration portal (IRP) for this (NIC). A trial version of einvoice1-trial.nic.in was made available to taxpayers so they could get accustomed to using it. However, the government withdrew this website since many taxpayers were using it to create their actual e-invoices. In this piece, we will take a look at what einvoice1-trial.nic.in is and what the user can do by using this provision.
The relevant taxpayer originally tested the e-invoice generation for integration on the einvoice1-trial.nic.in website.Since many taxpayers were becoming confused with the actual production NIC’s website, the trial e-invoice website is no longer accessible. In terms of e-invoicing, it mainly consisted of the following tasks.
Given below is what the user the user can access before and after logging in to the portal:
Before Logging In-
After Logging In-
After a successful login, the main menu screen looks like this:
The information above shows that there are five main options.
The e-invoice menu contains the following sub-menus-
Generate IRN – This option lets the taxpayer generate the unique IRN by manually entering the invoice/debit note/credit note details.
A QR code was provided on the website/IRP that could be scanned to rapidly access the JSON of the electronic invoice and enable digital signatures. The 64-character IRN for each invoice would be distinct.
Generate Bulk IRN – Rather than entering the data for each invoice one at a time, it is now possible to upload numerous invoices in a single JSON file. The website also provides a bulk converter tool that may be used to create JSON. Every invoice contained in the JSON will receive a different IRN.
Cancel IRN – If the information for an invoice was uploaded incorrectly, the generated IRN might also be cancelled within 24 hours of developing it. Remember that the IRN cannot be removed; even a cancelled invoice still has a distinct IRN. You may find the invoice that has to be cancelled by entering the acknowledgement number.
The system notifies “e-invoice cancelled successfully!” after the successful cancellation.
Print e-Invoice – It is necessary to enter the relevant invoice’s IRN/e-invoice number. A sample of the print can be seen below:
An MIS report could be created using this option. A list of uploaded bills will be presented based on criteria and dates. Using the “Export To Spreadsheet Tab,” you may also export this list in excel format.
In a large firm, various individuals may play various responsibilities in the organisation’s handling of bills. Depending on their position, these users’ access could be managed through this site.
The options available are “Create Sub-User,” “Freeze Sub-User,” “Update Sub-User,” and “Change Password,” as seen in the above figure. Each of these sub-users received the ensuing kinds of permissions-
The user IDs of the sub-users would be the same as those of the primary user, with the addition of a suffix, and they would each be given unique login credentials.
The process of entering company information each time an e-invoice is created may be tedious. As a result, by using this option, you can use the information from the GST common site to automatically fill up some fields when creating an e-invoice.

With Busy accounting software, you can generate IRN, cancel IRN, get GTIN details and complete system checks. It will eliminate the multiple visits to IRP, enabling you to generate and perform invoice operations within ERP itself. E-invoice has many benefits, such as auto-reporting invoices into GST returns and generation of the e-way bill, reducing the processing costs and improving business efficiency.
