The Zakat, Tax and Customs Authority has called on its taxpayers who are subject to the e-invoicing regulation to expedite the necessary arrangements to prepare their establishments to the requirements of the first phase, which has 30 days remaining as it will come into force on December 4, 2021.
The Authority has clarified that the requirements for compliance with the first phase of e-invoicing are to completely stop using handwritten invoices or computer generated invoices through Text editing or number analysis software and make sure that there is a technical solution for e-invoicing that's compatible with its requirements.
The requirements also include ensuring the issuance and preservation of e-invoices with all elements, including the QR code for simplified tax invoices and the tax number of the buyer registered in the value-added tax for tax invoices, in addition to making sure to include the invoice address, according to the issued type.
The “The Zakat, Tax, and Customs" has highlighted that taxpayers subject to e-invoicing can access the indicative list of non-binding providers of technical solutions for e-invoices, which was previously published on the website of the Authority and available through the link to select the appropriate technical solution to the size of the establishment and the type of sector. The Authority has also emphasized that the list of e-invoices solutions providers includes but is not limited to the providers listed; however, the taxpayer is considered complied when they meet the requirements for e-invoicing using any technical solution.
