  • If a GST-e-invoice or IRN (Invoice Reference Number) will be cancelled, then, the same invoice number cannot be used again to generate another GST-e-invoice or IRN (Invoice Reference Number). If it will be used again, the invoice will be rejected by the e-invoice portal, when reported. This is because, e-invoicing under GST or IRN is a unique reference number for invoices generated based on the GSTIN, document/ invoice number, type of document & financial year it has been issued in.
