User Management on IRP for GST e-Invoicing – How to create & manage Users

Updated on :  

08 min read.

The e-invoice generation is mandatory for all taxpayers with a turnover exceeding Rs.10 crore. It shall apply to those businesses with a turnover of more than Rs.5 crore from 1st January 2023. Some of these taxpayers have multiple places of business, or have branches and HO at different locations, or work remotely from the principal place of business. In such cases, the generation of IRN for multiple locations from a single place would be difficult and time-consuming.

To overcome this, the e-invoice system has come up with user-friendly services like user management under which a taxpayer can create multiple sub-users under his account and assign them different roles.

There are four options on the NIC’s e-invoice portal that are available under the user management section, listed below. You can enable more specific user access controls on Clear IRP, GOI’s officially approved IRP or the e-invoice portal as it serves you with easy-to-use and intuitive features.

  1. Create sub-user
  2. Freeze sub-user
  3. Update sub-user
  4. Change Password

Actions available for sub-users on the IRP

On the NIC’s e-invoice portal, a sub-user can perform the actions mentioned below-

  1. Generate IRN
  2. Cancel IRN
  3. Report generation of IRN

Need for having sub-users in e-invoicing

Many times the authorised person does not generate IRN on his own due to time constraints. He is dependent on his staff or operators to do the same. In such cases, he can create sub-users and assign them a particular task and not share his entire login rights. Even in cases of multiple places of business, the creation of sub-users is of great help. A single authorised person can create sub-users for different locations and assign them their roles. He just needs to monitor the work done by sub-users. For each place of business, a user can create 10 sub-users.

Steps to create sub-users

Follow the steps below to create sub-users on the NIC’s IRP or e-invoice portal-

  1. Click on the ‘Create sub-user’ tab under user management.

  2. Enter the basic details such as name, destination, mobile number and email ID of the sub-user.
  3. Choose the place of business for which one wants to create a sub-user.
