The government notified rules for a tax invoice. A tax invoice issued by a registered person should contain details as required.
I have drafted an invoice in MS Excel and PDF format, which you can use for reference purpose. Alternatively, you can use online invoicing software for GST.
I have prepared a draft invoice in excel format. You can download this excel file and change the format or designing as per your requirements.
Details of seller/supplier
Details of buyer/recipient if registered under GST
Details of buyer/recipient if not registered under GST and value of taxable supply is 50,000 or more
Details of products to be provided in invoice
Invoice should be signed either digitally by a DSC (Digital signature certificate) or hand signature by the supplier or his authorised representative.
These are the basic details that an invoice should contain, export invoice, reverse charging invoices should contain the fact on invoice.
If invoice is for supply of goods, then 3 copies should be printed.
In case of service 2 copies should be prepared,

I have not uploaded the MS word format. You can copy the excel format and paste in word to use it in MS Word. Similarly there are many online website which can convert PDF into word.
Update: KYG invoice application is live. I suggest using this application for generating GST invoices.
Sir what are the terms in case of selling goods to unregistered person under gst and the value of goods is less than 50000.what are the details necessary to be shown in invoice?
Tax invoice formats provided in Excel are not scaled for printing. You have to adjust the margins before printing. It is only for sample purpose for those who need a format to give to their printers.
Alternatively I highly recommend using invoicing application which I have created.
Sir is there any charges to use your invoicing application?
No. It is free for small businesses.
For invoice preparing which one necessity white sheet or printed stationery?
You can any. There is no rule on this.
You can have printed stationary but tax invoice should contain details as required under the law.
