eWay Bill

What is an eway bill?

You've provided a clear overview of the Electronic Way Bill (e-way bill) and its integration with LEDGERS for streamlined management. The e-way bill is a crucial document introduced under the Goods and Services Tax (GST) to track goods in transit, especially for taxable persons involved in transportation with a value exceeding Rs.50,000.
It's great to hear that LEDGERS has simplified the e-way bill generation and management process for businesses. The integration with GST invoices, bills of supply, purchase invoices, and customer or supplier accounts ensures a seamless and efficient workflow.
While the implementation of e-way bills was initially deferred when the GST Act came into effect on July 1st, it's evident that tools like LEDGERS are ready to support businesses when needed, providing a user-friendly solution for compliance with e-way bill rules.

How to Generate eWay Bill?

An E-Way Bill (EWB) is an ‘electronic way’ bill for movement of goods which can be generated on the E-Way Bill Portal. Any supplier or a transporter transporting goods with a value of more than Rs.50,000 (Single Invoice/bill/delivery challan) in a single vehicle should carry a GST e-way bill as per the GST Council regulations. The supplier or the transporter of the goods must register with GST to obtain GST E-Way bill. This bill shall come into effect from 1st April 2018.
After generating the E-Way bill on the portal using required credentials, the portal generates a unique E-Way Bill Number (EBN) and allocates to the registered supplier, recipient, and the transporter. In this article, we look at the steps to generate a e-way bill on the Government website.

The supplier or the transporter can create the E-way bill through the following ways:

Steps to generate e-Way Bill on the e-Way Bill portal

Exactly, you've highlighted a crucial requirement for generating an E-Way Bill: the need for both GST registration and transporter registration. The process involves using the GST E-Way Portal, and to access it, businesses and transporters must have valid registrations.

Generating eInvoice

Absolutely, the Invoice Reference Number (IRN) plays a crucial role in the eInvoicing system in India. It is a unique identifier assigned to each invoice by the GST Invoice Registration Portal. Once a taxpayer successfully uploads an eInvoice, the portal generates a distinct IRN for that specific invoice.

What is the minimum distance required for E-way bill?

While I don't have access to real-time updates, as of my last knowledge update in January 2023, the latest information available was until that date. If there have been amendments to the validity period of the E-way bill after that, I recommend checking the official GST portal or consulting with a tax professional for the most recent and accurate details.

You've provided a clear explanation of how the validity period of the E-way bill is calculated. The relevant date for determining the validity is the time at which the E-way bill is generated. Each day is counted as the period expiring at midnight of the day immediately following the date of generation. Additionally, you've mentioned the term 'Over Dimensional Cargo,' which refers to cargo carried as a single indivisible unit that exceeds the dimensional limits prescribed in rule 93 of the Central Motor Vehicle Rules, 1989, under the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988 (59 of 1988).

SMS E-Way Bill Generation on Mobile

It's crucial for taxpayers to register their mobile numbers on the GST e-way bill portal before initiating transactions. The process involves a secure registration to ensure that the system recognizes and responds to the registered mobile number associated with a particular GSTIN.
By ensuring that the correct and registered mobile number is linked to the GSTIN, taxpayers can securely and effectively utilize the SMS functionality for e-way bill processes. This adds an extra layer of security and verification to the registration process.

Step 1: Access to Portal

The taxpayer or the transporter must open the e-way bill portal and log in using his/her credentials.
