 ZATCA sets three steps for preparing for E-Invoicing first phase

The Zakat, Tax and Customs Authority (ZATCA) has set three key steps for the taxpayers subject to E-Invoicing Regulation to comply with and meet requirements of the E-invoicing first phase (Generation of Electronic Invoices), starting on December 4, 2021.


The three steps are: stopping issuance of handwritten invoices and invoices written using text editing tools; and generating and saving invoices and notes in an electronic format through an electronic solution compliant with the e-invoicing requirements and specifications, such as a cash register, cloud-based system or an ERP system.


The steps also included ensuring that electronic invoices contain all the required components, such QR code for simplified tax invoices, and VAT registration number for a registered VAT buyer for tax invoices.


These steps are part of preparation for implementing of the first phase of E-Invoicing, which will begin within less than six months from today, and of ZATCA's ceaseless efforts to raise awareness of the taxpayers subject to E-Invoicing Regulation.


ZATCA invites the business sector taxpayers subject to E-Invoicing Regulation, electronic invoicing system providers and the concerned persons who wish to learn more about the E-Invoicing (Fatoora) to reach out via its 24/7 call center hotline (19993), the Customer Care Twitter account (@Gazt_care), by e-mail ( or by instant messages on ZATCA's website (
