Under the GST regime, a tax invoice means the tax invoice referred to in section 31 of the CGST Act, 2017. For example, if a registered person is making or receiving supplies (from unregistered persons), then a tax invoice needs to be issued by such registered person. However, if a registered person is dealing only in exempted supplies or is availing the composition scheme (composition dealer), then such a registered person needs to issue a bill of supply in lieu of tax invoice. An invoice or a bill of supply need not be issued if the value of the supply is less than Rs. 200/-, subject to specified conditions provisos to sub section (3) of Section 31 of the CGST Act, 2017.
