Easy E-Invoicing,

In accordance with the new E-invoicing rules in Saudi Arabia

The General Authority of Zakat and Tax (GAZT), also known as The Zakat, Tax and Customs Authority, released its new e-invoicing (FATOORAH) regulations on December 4, 2020. Before December 4th 2021, all organizations and people liable to VAT must create systems for creating and storing e-invoices.

Saudi Arabia intends to use the new e-invoicing mandate to adopt global standards and boost tax compliance. Through this new regulation, the monarchy also seeks to lessen the shadow economy and commercial secrecy.

Everybody who is liable to VAT will need to create and keep electronic invoices in a format that complies with the new law. The new e-invoicing legislation applies to third parties as well who send tax bills to residents' behalf.

What is E-Invoicing (FATOORAH)

A tax invoice must be created and stored in a structured electronic system to be considered an electronic invoice (or "e-invoice," as the term is known). E-invoices do not include any scanned or handwritten invoices. E-invoicing solutions must be impenetrable, and suitable controls must be put in place to guarantee data integrity. Additionally, it should be able to interface with external systems using an API (APIs).


Electronic invoicing (e-invoicing) becomes mandatory in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia with Phase 1 coming into effect from 4 December 2021.

Taxpayers must be able to create and save Tax Invoices and Credit/Debit Notes online under the terms of this first phase of the new regime using a fully compliant software system. Companies must make sure they are compliant from the beginning because this is a two-phase procedure.
