What is an eWay Bill, and how does it work?
EWay Bill is an electronic waybill that may be created on the eWay Bill App Portal to transport goods. Without an e-way bill designed on ewaybillgst.gov.in, a GST registered person cannot move goods in a vehicle with a value above Rs. 50,000 (Single Invoice/bill/delivery challan).
Alternatively, an Eway bill may be produced or canceled through SMS, Android App, or API site-to-site interface.
It identifies every Eway Bill and is accessible to the provider, receiver, and carrier.
When should the eWay Bill be sent out?
EWay bills are generated in the movement of goods with a value exceeding Rs. 50,000 in a vehicle/conveyance (either per invoice or in the aggregate of all invoices in that vehicle/conveyance).
- In the context of the supply,’
- For reasons unrelated to supply (say a return)
- Because of supply from an unregistered individual who came in from the outside
- A supply for this purpose might be one of the following:
- In commerce, a supply is provided for a consideration (payment).
- A supply supplied for a monetary consideration (payment) that isn’t always in the course of business.
- A provision made without thought (without payment)
To put it another way, the term supply typically refers to:
- Sale is a transaction in which products are sold and exchanged for money.
- Branch transfers are an example of a transfer.
- Barter/Exchange — when products are exchanged instead of money.
An eWay Bill should be generated by whom?
A waybill must be created when there is a movement of items valued at more than Rs 50,000 to or from a registered individual. Even if the value of the items is less than Rs 50,000, a registered individual or the carrier may opt to produce and carry a waybill.
Unregistered Individuals: Unregistered individuals must also create an e-Way Bill. When an unregistered person delivers to a registered person, the receiver is responsible for ensuring that all compliance requirements are completed as if they were the supplier.
Transporter: Transporters who transport products by road, air, rail, or other means must also create an e-Way Bill if the supplier has not done so.
When an eWay bill app Isn’t Necessary?
It is not essential to produce e-Way Bil in the following situations:
- The method of transportation is a non-motorized conveyance.
- Goods are transferred to the Inland Container Depot (ICD) or Container Freight Station (CFS) for Customs clearance from a Customs port, airport, air cargo complex, or land customs station.
- Goods that are supervised by Customs or are sealed by Customs
- Goods carried under a Customs Bond from an ICD to a Customs port or from one customs station to another.
- Nepalese or Bhutanese goods in transit.
- Movement of products induced by defense formations acting as consignors or consignees under the Ministry of Defense.
- Empty cargo containers are being carried.
- Consignor conveying products 20 kilometers between their place of business and a weighbridge for weighing, accompanied by a Delivery challan.
