ZATCA amends e-Invoicing Implementation Resolution

31 May 2022 - Electronic Invoicing (e-Invoicing) has been live in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) since December 4, 2021. As previously announced, this initiative was structured around two phases:    

  1. The Generation phase – now live; and
  2. The Integration phase that will go-live on 1 January 2023.

In respect of the Integration phase, it is anticipated that by 1 July 2022, the Zakat, Tax and Customs Authority (ZATCA) will invite the first wave of taxpayers to integrate their IT systems with ZATCA’s Fatoora Portal, i.e., six months before the second go-live date of 1 January 2023.

The ZATCA released an updated draft of the e-Invoicing Implementation Resolution in Arabic on 27 May 2022. The changes made to the Resolution, annexes, and the related technical specifications will mainly be relevant for this latter phase that will go-live on 1 January 2023. Please note that this Resolution is yet to be published in English.

In addition, the ZATCA announced a public consultation where comments can be submitted up until 10 June 2022. This will allow taxpayers, e-Invoicing service
providers, advisors, and other interested parties to provide feedback on the
updated draft resolution, annexes, and the related technical specifications.
