GST invoice is a document raised by every supplier at the time of making any kind of sale/purchase. It is very crucial to issue an invoice as it is a document evidencing supply of goods and services which become the basis for a charge of tax. An invoice issued by the supplier is accounted by the recipient in his books of accounts. The invoice issued will contain the various details like description of goods and/or services, value, tax, and other particulars. Sometimes the details added in the invoice issued are incorrect and the need to amend the invoice arises. The invoices issued can be amended by issuing the following-

  1. Revised Invoice
