The Zakat, Tax and Customs Authority (ZATCA) carried out more than 11,000 inspection rounds last February on markets and commercial shops in various regions and cities across the Kingdom.
According to ZATCA, the rounds conducted by its oversight and inspection teams, in collaboration with the National Anti-Commercial Concealment Program, encompassed a variety of commercial sectors, most notably: retail, food, and professional service sectors. The most notable violations detected were the failure to include the Quick Response (QR) code in the e-invoice, the failure to issue electronic tax invoices, and the failure to issue electronic debit or credit notices.
The Authority's inspection rounds are part of the supervisory efforts by the oversight and field teams to reinforce taxpayer compliance with tax laws applicable in the Kingdom and prevent commercial transactions in violation of the ZATCA-enforced regulations and instructions.
The Authority urges all consumers to lodge their reports against any establishment that exhibits any tax violations via its website (zatca.gov.sa) or ZATCA App. ZATCA offers incentive rewards for people who file reports on tax violations, rewards amount to 2.5% of the value of violations and fines, at a maximum of 1 million riyals or a minimum of 1000 riyals.
