Dear Vendor Partners

Tata Steel UISL conducts Management of Business Ethics (MBE) survey every alternate year. The objective is to measure the perception of ethical culture for its business associates including vendors and its employees and evaluate effectiveness of MBE initiatives. In addition, the MBE Survey FY21 is designed to understand vendors' view on MBE deployment and communication strategies.

The feedback will help us in prioritising Tata Steel UISL's efforts at establishing an ethical tone throughout the organisation and in identifying areas of improvement.

We value your inputs and invite you to click on the link provided to complete the survey.

Vide notification No 78/2020 - Central Tax dated 15th October 2020, The Central Board of Indirect Taxes has mandate 4 / 6 digit HSN / SAC Codes n supply of Goods or Services on the invoices with effect from 1st April 2021.

No. Aggregate Turnover in the preceding Financial Year Number of Digits of HSN Code
1. Upto INR 5 crores 4
2. More than INR 5 crores 6

Thereafter, Notification No. 12/2017 - Central Tax dated June 28, 2017 was again amended vide Notification No. 90/2020 - Central Tax, dated December 01, 2020 to provide for class of supply- 'Chemicals' whose HSN Code are required to be mentioned at 8-digit on the tax invoices.

All the vendors whose Turnover is more than Rs. 5 crs in the preceding financial year (2020-21) are required to submit invoices with 6 digit HSN Code.

Similarly, vendors who are supplying Chemicals should mention HSN code with 8 digits, irrespective of their turnover.

As you may be aware that GST Council has decided to introduce electronic-invoice (E-invoice) in phased manner for reporting of Business to Business (B2B) invoices (including debit and credit notes). The E-Invoicing/generation of IRN (Invoice Reference Number) through Invoice Registration Portal (IRP) has already started w.e.f. 1st October, 2020 for all the taxpayers exceeding aggregate turnover (at PAN level) of over Rs. 500 Cr. The limit has been reduced to 100 Crore from 1st January 20201 vide GST Notification No. 88/2020-CT dated 10th November 2020.

As per the latest GST Notification No. 05/2021 - Central Tax dated 8th March 20201, E-invoicing is mandatory for taxpayers having aggregate turnover exceeding Rs. 50 Crore from 1st April 2021. E-invoicing is indeed the most transformational reform under GST regime, and it would be crucial for businesses to get ready for its implementation to ensure proper compliance.

Please note that any invoice of B2B transaction (B2B - Buyer & Seller having GST Nos.) without IRN & QR code will not be a valid invoice for availing input tax credit in the hands of recipient of goods and services.

Hence, Tata Steel Utilities and Infrastructure Services Limited will not accept any supply (both goods & services) post 1st April, 2021 with an invoice without IRN and QR Code, where the IRN is required to be printed on the invoice in accordance with the GST rules for all vendors partners, for whom E-Invoicing is applicable.

If your organisation is covered within the above stated turnover limit, then you may have to make necessary arrangements to generate IRN/QR Code.

We once again request you to ensure timely compliance of the above change to avoid any business disruption.

In case you need any clarification, please revert to Mr Santosh Kumar Sunkari or Mr P Vijay Gopal on /
