What is an e-Way bill?
e-Way bill is a document required to be carried by a person in charge of the conveyance carrying any consignment of goods of value exceeding fifty thousand rupees as mandated by the Government in the Goods and Services Tax Act. It is generated from the GST Common Portal by the registered persons or transporters who cause movement of goods on consignment before the commencement of such movement.
Need for an e-Way bill:
The e-Way bill provisions under GST aims to bring in a uniform e-Way bill rule which will be applicable throughout the country.
The e-Way bill mechanism will ensure that goods being transported comply with the GST Law and is a useful tool to track the movement of goods and check tax evasion. The new system will help in:
Who needs to generate & carry an e-Way bill
This system generated bill will have to be carried by every eligible transporter to move the goods from one place to another. Under the Goods and Services Tax rolled out in, inter-state movement of goods beyond 10 km, with a value of Rs. 50,000 and above, will mandatorily require an e-Way bill.
Every registered person, who causes movement of goods, needs to generate the e-Way bill. If the registered person is unable to generate the e-Way bill, the transporter who transports the goods can generate the e-Way bill on behalf of his/her client. If the movement is caused by an unregistered person, he may at his option generate the e-Way bill.
What is the validity of e-Way Bill:
The validity depends upon the distance to be travelled by the goods.
Part-A entry is made by the supplier to temporarily store the document details on the e-Way bill system. Once the goods are ready for movement from the business premises, the registered person shall first furnish the information relating to the transporter in Part B of Form on the government portal and then, the e-Way bill shall be generated by the transporter on the basis of the information furnished by the registered person in Part A of the Form.
