The Zakat, Tax and Customs Authority (ZATCA) has called on the taxpayers subject to E-Invoicing Regulation to expedite the necessary arrangements needed to prepare their establishments to meet requirements of the first phase, which has 30 days left before it takes effect on December 4, 2021.
ZATCA has identified the E-Invoicing first phase compliance requirements which are to stop issuance of handwritten invoices and invoices written using text editing tools or numerical-analysis software, and to use an e-invoicing solution compliant with the E-Invoicing requirements.
The requirements also include ensuring that electronic invoices contain all the required components, such as QR code for simplified tax invoices, and VAT registration number for a registered VAT buyer for tax invoices, and besides, the invoice title according to the issued type.
ZATCA stated that taxpayers subject to E-Invoicing Regulation could view the non-legally binding indicative list of solution providers, which has been published on ZATCA's website, via this link in order to choose the solution appropriate for the establishment size and the type of sector, stressing that the list does not mean that provision of e-invoicing solutions is limited to the providers listed, as the taxpayer may choose any e-invoicing solution as long as it is compliant with the e-invoicing requirements.
ZATCA urges the business sector taxpayers subject to E-Invoicing Regulation, electronic invoicing system providers and the concerned persons to get in touch for any inquiries on E-Invoicing (Fatoora) through the 24/7 call center hotline (19993), Customer Care Twitter account (@Zatca_Care), via e-mail (email@example.com) or by instant messages on the website (zatca.gov.sa).
