Under Goods and Service Tax (“GST”) regime, an invoice plays vital role as this document captures every details about transaction like supplier information, recipient details, goods description, tax rates etc. Every transaction is needed to be made under a cover of invoice.

As per Rule 46(n) of CGST Rules, tax invoice must contain place of supply along with name of state. This information enables government to determine consuming state of goods or service and accordingly, government can make proper allocation of GST among Centre and state.

However, it has been observed by board under GST Audit process that a number of registered persons (especially banking, insurance and telecom sector etc.) have failed to mentioned place of state and name of state on tax invoice.

Accordingly, department has instructed vide circular 90/09/2019-GST dated 18th February, 2019 that all registered taxpayers are required to mention place of supply and name of state on tax invoice while making inter-state supply. Contravention will lead to invocation of penalty proceedings against taxpayer under section 122 or 125 of CGST Act.
