Currently for any changes in submitted invoice, the invoice number changes to add -1, -2, etc behind it. Many times the changes are required to be made even after sending invoice to the client.
After GST the invoice number for supplier and buyer will be matched. Now if buyer’s has already done their system entry with old number, change of this invoice number in our system will lead to additional issues of reconciliation.
Can we think of opposite logic, giving -1 to cancelled invoice and keep invoice number intact in new amended invoice?
I know it may not sound good to many, but think of a scenario, where return (GSTR1) has been filed with old invoice number, but at time of reconciliation(GSTR2) it requires some changes to be done in amount or item code, how can we do it without changing the number?
