Automatically Issuing GST Invoices in KonfHub


5 min read

In the dynamic world of event organization, every detail counts. Whether it's orchestrating a seamless experience for attendees or managing the intricate financial aspects, event organizers are constantly seeking ways to enhance efficiency and convenience. Recognizing this need, KonfHub has introduced Goods and Services Tax invoices (for organizers in India) that are issued automatically from the platform itself.

Why This Feature?

The rationale behind introducing the GST invoice feature on KonfHub stems from the evolving demands of organizers and participants alike. With an increasing number of participants from corporate entities participating in events, the need to streamline invoicing and taxation processes has become paramount.

Organizers often encounter scenarios where participants, representing their respective organizations, require the ability to input the organization’s GST details and get GST invoices. Moreover, in instances where participants seek reimbursement from their companies, having a clear distinction between the buyer (the organization) and the individual participants is essential.

Key Features and Functionality

The GST invoice feature on KonfHub offers a comprehensive solution to address the diverse needs of event organizers and participants. Here's a breakdown of its key features and functionality:

  1. Individualized Invoicing: Participants have the flexibility to enter their personal or companies’ GST details during the registration process, ensuring that invoices are accurately tailored to the buyers requirements.

2. Combined Invoices: For events where buyers are from corporate organizations and require refunds, KonfHub facilitates the issuance of combined invoices to the buyer (organization) while providing individual tickets to participants. This streamlined approach simplifies the reimbursement process and enhances organizational efficiency.

3. Seamless Integration: The GST invoices feature seamlessly integrates into KonfHub's existing payment infrastructure, minimizing disruptions and ensuring a smooth user experience for both organizers and participants.

4. Customizable Settings: Organizers have the flexibility to customize GST invoice settings based on their specific requirements, including determining who bears platform charges or processing fees.

How It Works (for Organizers)

Availing the GST invoice feature on KonfHub is a straightforward process. Here's a step-by-step guide:

Step 1: Log in to your KonfHub account, and navigate to the 'Payments & Charges' section in your event admin dashboard.

Step 2: Select 'Taxes & Charges' and proceed to fill in the necessary details, including GST information.

Choose Yes for “Do you want to generate tax invoice for participants?” and save the changes.

Step 3: Really, that’s all! You're all set to enjoy the benefits of the GST invoices feature.

Real-World Use Cases

To illustrate the versatility and effectiveness of the GST feature, consider the following scenarios:

1. Single Participant with GST Details: Participants can seamlessly input their GST information during registration, ensuring compliance with organizational policies. They get their ticket and GST invoice with their GST details.

2. Single Participant without GST Details: For individuals without GST details, the invoice will be directed to the primary registrant, simplifying the payment process. No GST invoice customized to participants will be issued in this scenario.

3. Multiple Participants without GST Details: In scenarios involving multiple participants without GST details, KonfHub issues individual tickets & invoices to the participants. No GST invoice customized to participants will be issued in this scenario.

4. Multiple Participants with GST Details: In scenarios involving multiple participants with GST details, KonfHub issues individual tickets to the participants while sending a combined invoice to the buyer. A single combined GST invoice with buyer-provided GST details is issued in this scenario.

In other words, the workflow covers issuing invoices to single & multiple buyers, and the ones with or without GST details.

How about cancellations or refunds? In case of ticket cancellation, the organizer of the event can decide if the GST is refundable or fully or partially forfeited. In case of a refund, the refund will be made to the source mode of payment through which the ticket was purchased. As the organizer, you need to decide how to handle the GST payments when you refund the participant.


Let us try to understand this with the help of a simple example. Suppose some employees from Myntra are participating in an event.

Scenario #1: Each employee is purchasing their own ticket which needs to be reimbursed by Myntra who will also be bearing the GST cost. As you can see the employee will fill in his own details in the participant section and add Myntra’s details in the buyer section.

On purchasing the ticket, the participant will get the ticket via email and the invoice will be mailed to the buyer's email address. Participants can also download the ticket and invoice from their KonfHub profile.

Scenario 2: One employee is purchasing tickets for other employees which need to be reimbursed by Myntra who will also be bearing the GST cost. As can be seen from the

Image below, the authorized person will fill in their details followed by details of other participants. They will share the company details in the buyer’s details. In case no buyer details are filled, the system will automatically take the first participant’s details.

The participants will receive their own tickets and the buyer will get the combined invoice.
