3295226 - SAP Invoice Management by Open Text - How to prepare OpenText products to support India’s new e-invoicing mandate


The Goods and Services Tax (GST) Council of the Government of India is mandating e-invoicing starting on October 1, 2020. The new process requires businesses in India to generate tax invoices from their enterprise resource planning (ERP) or other accounting systems and register their transactions with the government-authorized invoice registration portal. After the portal verifies the invoice, it is digitally signed by the GST Network (GSTN), which generates the signed e-invoice with an Invoice Reference Number (IRN) and a Quick Response code (QR Code). These e-invoices are then issued to the business for maintaining records and sharing with their business stakeholders.

In response to this mandate, updates are required to Invoice Capture Center for SAP Solutions, Business Center Capture for SAP Solutions, and Vendor Invoice Management (VIM) for SAP Solutions to:

  • Automatically read the QR code and extract the 64-character IRN
  • Include the IRN in the VIM screens
  • Forward the IRN when posting an invoice in SAP
