Business growth app UpScale by CredAble launches new E- invoicing solution to help SMEs

MUMBAI: Keeping up with the government of India’s bullish stance on digital transformation, UpScale by CredAble, a business growth app, has launched its new e-invoicing solutions for SMEs. The solution helps businesses with financial operations management assistance as per the rules led by the Government of India.  

According to a recent government directive, e-invoicing will be mandatory for certain businesses beginning January 1, 2023. This includes businesses with a cumulative yearly turnover of over Rs. 5 crore and above in any previous financial year from 2017–18 to 2021–22.  

With e-invoicing, organizations would be able to streamline their invoice processing cycles, further reducing the man-hours required for invoice processing, approval, tracking, and chasing invoices and human errors, thus resulting in a much faster turnaround time.  

In the coming few months, a large number of SMEs are expected to face challenges in finding a solution that is both uncomplicated and affordable. This is where UpScale by CredAble steps in.

Launched in November 2021 by CredAble, India’s largest working capital technology platform, UpScale provides SMEs with quick access to working capital, trade support, and opportunities, as well as an affordable payments solution that includes invoicing management.  

E-invoicing will be required by the government for businesses with an annual turnover of more than Rs 5 crore starting in January 2023. Right now, it is only required for businesses with an annual turnover of Rs 10 crore or more. This has left SMEs looking for a simple and inexpensive solution. 

Highlighting the significance of overcoming the obstacles faced by SMEs in the new digital ecosystem, Mr. Nirav Choksi, Co-founder, and CEO at CredAble said, “CredAble has consistently been a leader in adopting the most recent technology standards rapidly and has established itself as vital for the companies seeking to operate efficiently." We believe that UpScale’s e-invoicing solution is a necessity and is made specifically keeping SMEs in mind. It provides one-of-a-kind solutions to assist them in adhering to government regulations in the simplest and most secure manner possible, at a very low cost. We’re glad that our exposure and expertise in the business ecosystem helped us understand the challenges Indian SMEs face, which eventually inspired us to create UpScale. In addition to bridging the gap between credit and cash flow management, the application also contributes pro-actively to the digital transformation movement that is currently shaping the next ten years for SMEs in India.”
