ZATCA Phase 2 (Fatoora)
As a business in Saudi Arabia, accessing the Fatoora Portal is your first step toward seamless integration with the e-invoicing system.
What is ZATCA Phase 2?
The integration phase, known as phase 2 of e-invoicing, is an IT system of business issuing tax invoices as per ZATCA e invoicing, such as POS, accounting software, ERP etc., needs to be integrated with the ZATCA’s system (Fatoora Portal). Where all the invoices should be automatically pushed to Fatoora Portal on daily basis.
In this system, once the supplier generates the invoice, the details will be electronically uploaded to the Fatoora portal, which will validate and authenticate the invoice. After successful authentication, each invoice is digitally signed and added with a QR code.
ZATCA developed the Fatoora portal so taxpayers can onboard their EGS (E-invoice generating solution) units by generating a new Cryptographic Stamp Identifier (CSID) or renewing the existing CSIDs. Also, taxpayers can use the Fatoora portal to revoke the CSIDs and view the list of onboarded solutions and devices.
What is the difference between ZATCA phase 2 and phase 1?
The Generation phase, known as phase 1 of e-invoicing where any business is mandated to issue the simplified tax invoice with the QR code. Where in the Phase 2 all businesses should integrate with Fatoora portal to push all the invoices to ZATCA system for tax computation and further return fillings.
