Enabling the Tax Invoice on your Account

Daftra software provides a dedicated tool to customize and format invoice templates. With the implementation of the Electronic Invoice System, we have provided a pre-made template called “Tax Invoice” that complies with all the requirements set by the Saudi Arabian General Authority of Zakat and Tax. This aims to facilitate the immediate transition for account holders during the Phase 1 of the Electronic Invoice System.

  1. Includes a QR code.
  2. Displays the VAT number of the business/establishment.
