With the concept of e-invoicing from 4th December,2021, handwritten and manually generated invoices will no longer be valid. The e-invoicing system requires businesses to generate e-invoices using software or any electronic solution complying with the guidelines.
While it is evident that one must use software or any other electronic solution, businesses must understand the different types of supplies covered under the scope of e-invoicing in Saudi. Barring a few notified supplies like exempt, imports etc., to other kinds of supplies, one needs to issue an e-invoice.
Let’s take a look at different types of supplies covered under e-invoicing in Saudi
e-Invoice is mandatory for taxable supplies subject to the standard VAT rate and whose value is SAR 1,000 or more, whether made to a taxable or non-taxable legal person.

An e-Invoice is required for all exports of goods, regardless of supply value or importer status.
Example of E-invoice for exports
Al Hafoof Chemical company, a registered taxpayer, is a subcontractor for chemical products in Riyadh. Florida Steel Factory, a USA based company, contracts Al Hafoof for chemical products for one of their steel productions to be delivered in the USA. Al Hafoof supplied the products as per the order received from Florida Steel Factory.
For the supply of goods or services from a supplier residing in the Kingdom to a customer located in any member state of the Gulf Cooperation Council, an electronic invoice must be issued in all cases in relation to such transactions.
It is important to note that that supplies between the GCC countries will be considered inter-state supplies from the date in which the transitional provisions under Article 79 of the VAT Implementing Regulations expire, and until that date, the import and export provisions will apply to those transactions
Example of intra-GCC supplies
Ali law firm, a taxable person resident in KSA, provided legal services to A-1 Enterprises, an entity located in Bahrain for a dispute related to real estate located in Bahrain. The law firm should issue an e-invoice (Standard Invoice) to XYZ once relevant Articles of GCC VAT Framework Agreement are enforced.
A nominal supply is an actual supply of goods or services to another person for no consideration. This does not include the supply of free of charge samples and gifts which have a value of less than 200 SAR (provided under the normal course of business)
An e-Invoice must be generated for nominal supplies and retained with the business records for audit purposes. However, the taxable person receiving goods or services under a nominal supply arrangement will not to allowed to deduct input VAT. Therefore, the e-Invoice should not be provided to the Customer
Example of e-invoice for nominal supplies
Alaa store, a perfume store in Riyadh, provides a free bag to a customer as a token of thanks for being a loyal customer. The cost price of the bags is SAR 300. Alaa Store must account for VAT of SAR 45 (15% of the cost price) on the nominal supply of goods for no consideration.
Since the deemed supplies should be documented for VAT purposes, Alaa Store should generate an e-invoice and retain it as a business record, according to the provisions in VAT Law.
An e-invoice must be issued on the date of receiving the payment before making the actual supply. In simple words, an e-invoice must be issued for receiving advances against the supply. In cases of part payment, an e-invoice must be issued to the extent of the consideration received.
Businesses should issue electronic notes for those situations for which debit and credit notes are issued. It includes sales return, cancellation of supply, change in price etc.
