Essential Integration for VAT-Registered Businesses in KSA
Integrating with ZATCA (Zakat, Tax, and Customs Authority) is mandatory for businesses in Saudi Arabia that are subject to Value Added Tax (VAT) and other tax regulations. As per the regulations set forth by ZATCA, businesses with annual revenues exceeding the VAT threshold (currently SAR 375,000) are required to register for VAT and comply with the tax reporting requirements, including integrating their Point of Sale (POS) solutions with ZATCA.
Before choosing a POS solution, it's crucial to ensure that it is compliant with the latest Phase 2 requirements of ZATCA integration. This will ensure that your business is fully compliant with the regulations and avoids any potential penalties or fines for non-compliance. Here's an overview of what each phase details
Phase 1 of ZATCA integration requires businesses to issue electronic invoices and receipts that comply with ZATCA regulations. This includes generating electronic invoices with specific data elements, such as the invoice number, date, buyer's and seller's information, tax amount, etc. The generated invoices must also be stored securely for a specified period of time and be available for audit purposes.
Phase 2 of ZATCA integration takes the compliance requirements a step further. In addition to electronic invoicing, Phase 2 mandates businesses to submit transactional data in real-time to ZATCA, including details of each sale transaction, such as item description, quantity, price, tax amount, etc., through a designated API. This data needs to be submitted to ZATCA within a specified timeframe, usually immediately after the transaction occurs.
