SunTec e-Invoicing Solution

Increase transactional efficiency and ensure complete digital invoicing while staying compliant with e-invoicing in Saudi Arabia

What Does the KSA e-Invoicing Mandate Mean for Banks and Financial Institutions?

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) will implement its e-invoicing mandate with effect from 4 December 2021. From this date, all business entities, including banks & financial institutions in the KSA to which e-invoicing regulations apply, must be prepared to issue, receive, and store e-invoices. This is a giant leap in the Kingdom’s digital transformation journey and e-invoicing will enable payments efficiency and security. It will eliminate error-prone manual invoice processing and reconciliation, thereby addressing fake invoices and reducing the risk of revenue leakage through VAT avoidance. This move will not only make trade more seamless but also ensure tax compliance and enhance transparency.

Who is Subject to the e-Invoicing Regulation?

The e-invoicing regulations will apply to two categories of entities/individuals:

  • All taxpayers subject to value-added tax residing in KSA; and
  • Any party that issues a tax invoice on behalf of a taxpayer who is subject to VAT.

At this time, taxpayers who are not residents of KSA are excluded from the e-invoicing requirement.
