The Zakat, Tax, and Customs Authority will begin on 1 January 2023 applying the second phase of E-invoicing “integration phase,” to the enterprises that were chosen within the first group after meeting the conditions necessary to complete this phase.
The Authority stated that the enterprises that began today to connect their E-invoicing systems with the Fatoora platform were chosen based on the level of revenues subject to value-added tax for the year 2021 whose revenues exceed (3) billion Riyals.
ZATCA stressed that this phase aims to link and integrate the E-invoicing systems of taxpayers subject to the E-invoicing regulations with the Fatoora platform, as the Authority worked to notify the targeted enterprises to complete the procedures for applying the second phase of e-invoicing six months before the application.
In addition, the Authority claimed that the second phase has additional requirements, most notably connecting taxpayers’ electronic invoicing systems with the Authority’s system, issuing electronic invoices using a specific format, and including a number of additional elements in the invoice.
The Authority is striving to impose this phase gradually and in groups, and it will directly inform the succeeding groups at least six months prior to the integration date.
This is a continuation of the economic revival and digital transformation that are currently taking place in the Kingdom. It also marks the continuation of a success story that began with the first phase, which produced many beneficial outcomes, including raising the level of consumer protection throughout the Kingdom and raising taxpayer awareness.
