Government puts off penalty provision for not using QR codes on GST invoices

The provision was to penalise businesses not using QR codes on their invoices from December 1 but now it would come into force from April 1.

However, the penalty waiver is contingent on businesses using QR codes from the start of the next fiscal year.

The move is aimed at promoting digital payment in business to customer (B2C) transactions through QR code and enabling GST payment on UPI — a digital retail payment option.
