SunTec is enabling ZATCA integration for the top five banks in the KSA region

Riyadh, February 20, 2023: SunTec Business Solutions, the world’s #1 relationship-based pricing and billing software company, today announced that Riyad Bank, one of the largest financial institutions in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA), has gone live with the Zakat, Tax and Customs Authority (ZATCA) integration for e-invoicing, deploying its SunTec Xelerate platform.

Along with Riyad Bank, SunTec is also working closely with the top five banks in the region to seamlessly integrate the e-invoicing solution with ZATCA’s platform (FATOORA) under Wave 2 E-invoicing. With this integration, banks will be able to generate simplified and standard e-invoices and share the digital invoices with the FATOORA portal for reporting, which in turn will be validated by the portal and returned with an acknowledgement status, thus, ensuring a compliant, tamper-proof, and a seamless invoicing process.

Amit Dua, President at SunTec said, “We are truly delighted to have implemented the e-invoicing regime and ZATCA integration at Riyad Bank. The SunTec e-invoicing solution seamlessly integrates with the bank’s existing IT systems and enables complete digital invoice management, while ensuring security, accuracy, and regulatory compliance. Our solution automates the entire invoicing process (and amendments), thereby reducing time and cost overheads. Our solution will further ensure that invoices are seamlessly reported to ZATCA.”

SunTec has a strong global experience in indirect taxation and digital transformation in the banking landscape.  SunTec has implemented its indirect taxation product in more than 55 banks across the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries and India.
