One-Time Setup for e-Invoicing
e-Invoicing in TallyPrime is a delightfully smooth experience that will help you generate e-invoices for your business, in the course of your regular invoicing. Getting started with e-invoicing is also equally easy! You only have to create your e-invoice profile in IRP and then enable e-invoicing in TallyPrime.
Setup on IRP
The first step in getting started with e-invoicing is to register your business on IRP, after which you can create an API user profile. Ensure that you select Tally India Pvt Ltd as your GSP while creating your profile.
Setup in TallyPrime
The second step in your e-invoicing journey consists in enabling the e-invoicing facility in TallyPrime. You only have to go to the Company features and configure the e-invoicing options. That’s it! You are now ready to generate e-invoices on IRP through TallyPrime.
TallyPrime also comes with other features to make your e-invoice journey even more delightful. For example, if your business deals in exports, then you have to furnish the details of the currency codes. This is required by the e-Invoice department to identify the currency and the corresponding rate of exchange. However, you can easily take care of this in TallyPrime by updating the ISO currency codes for all your foreign currencies.
TallyPrime also comes with added security to safeguard your e-invoicing data. For example, if you have multiple users, and you want to allow only selected users to upload invoices to IRP, then you can configure the user profiles accordingly. You can create users and provide them with the relevant rights.
For a seamless e-invoicing experience, we would also recommend that you add TallyPrime to the exceptions list of your firewall and anti-virus software.
