ZATCA or e- invoicing helps processing of invoices, credit notes and debit notes in a structured electronic format.

E-invoice implementation helps business to function more securely and efficiently. Here the company data is combined with ZATCA to make the trading system more transparent. This phase mandates integration of ERP/POS systems and billing software with the ZATCA`s Fatoorah Portal. Confirming the e-invoices via ZATCA portal also helps identify fraudulent practices. This also assists tax officials in reducing the frequency of their audits.
