What does Phase 2 of the e-invoicing implementation include?
Phase 2 begins on January 1, 2023. From this date, as a seller, you will need to integrate your e-invoicing system with ZATCA’s portal so you can share your invoices and get them validated and verified before issuing them to the customer. This phase will be implemented in different stages for different taxpayers, and you’ll be informed by ZATCA about the integration date 6 months prior to when it will affect you.
In this phase, you must be issuing your e-invoice in XML or PDF/A-3 format with embedded XML. Your e-invoicing solution should also be equipped with the technical requirements listed above.
