Accounting Software as per Saudi Arabia (KSA) Government Workforce Model
The Zakat, Tax and Customs Authority (‘ZATCA’) has published a new guide providing explanation / clarification in relation to development of of a compliant QR code for E invoices.
In accordance with the e-invoicing Resolutions issued by ZATCA earlier, simplified invoices must contain a QR code containing certain prescribed information.
The guide can be downloaded from this link.
The guide issued by ZATCA provides some technical information/ clarification in respect of the following:
QR code specifications along with timelines to mention required details (generation vs integration phases) as detailed in the below table:
Tag, Length, Value (also referred to as TLV) file format and its creation along with explanation of some common mistakes.

Following the publication by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) General Authority of Zakat & Tax (GAZT) of the E-invoicing Simplified Tax Invoice with accounting software regulations, Webs Utility Global has set out below our recommendations of actions businesses should take ahead of the new rules coming into effect.
GAZT issued the final Online electronic based invoicing with accounting software (e-invoicing with accounting software ) regulations in Arabic on 4 December 2020, setting out that it will be mandatory for resident taxpayers to be fully equipped to issue, save and modify E-invoicing Simplified Tax Invoice s by 4 December 2021.
The regulations specify the terms, requirements and conditions related to Online electronic based invoices and Online electronic based credit and debit notes. That said, the exact type of E-invoicing Simplified Tax Invoice with accounting software system is yet to be formally published; we expect to see this in the New Year.
It is important to note that the E-invoicing Simplified Tax Invoice with accounting software regulations will attract all the provisions related to a tax invoice in the VAT legislation, and any non-compliance will result in penalties from GAZT.
The regulations also note that in addition to these regulations and the VAT legislation, the provisions relating to proof of Online electronic based transactions and Online electronic based signatures provided for in the Online electronic based Transactions Law in force in KSA shall apply to Online electronic based invoices and notes issued.
The following key points should be considered by businesses operating in KSA:
E-invoices must be issued from 4 December 2021 (first phase).
At a later date, the second phase will come into effect, whereby taxpayers’ systems of issuing Online electronic based invoices and debit and credit notes must be linked with GAZT’s systems to share data and information.
Details of the requirements, controls, and procedures for the above phases will be issued no later than 180 days from the date of the publication of the regulations (4 December 2020).
E-invoices must be issued in Arabic (additional languages are permitted, in addition to the required Arabic).
The E-invoicing Simplified Tax Invoice with accounting software provisions apply to all taxable supplies subject to the standard or zero rate of VAT and to both resident and non-resident consumers (i.e. for sales outside KSA).
Why is the KSA government implementing E-invoicing Simplified Tax Invoice with accounting software ?
The KSA government is implementing E-invoicing Simplified Tax Invoice with accounting software for a number of reasons. These broadly fall into two categories: efficiency and security.
E-invoicing with accounting software can increase efficiency in transactions by making trade more seamless, efficient, and result in faster payments and reduced costs, whilst providing the government with greater insights on market conditions. This also enables fair competition, increases business competitiveness and improves consumer protection in the market, in line with international best practices.
From a security perspective, E-invoicing Simplified Tax Invoice with accounting software allows the government to detect and reduce the shadow economy and to monitor the movement of goods, services, and money in (near) real-time, depending on the model that will be implemented. This in turn would lead to achieving increased tax compliance rates, provide increased transparency on commercial transactions and allow data-informed decision making.

Webs Utility Team bring the product offering to market much faster by compressing the length of time from development to release and treating end user as the ultimate arbiter of the product value. Our business and IT teams creativity, with clients, to prove the viability, feasibility, and desirability of products and then define the MVP scope. Webs Utility Team then create a prioritized, right-sized product backlog of user stories required for the 'first lean' release of the idea. Webs Utility Team sketch a skeleton application and build a first functional prototype and get it validated from the end-user and client. Based on the insights gained, Webs Utility Team follow with small releases until the product gradually emerges.
Orchestrating the Cadence of the Modern Workforce
In the ever-changing landscape of organisational structure, traditional role-based thinking constraints have given way to the T-shaped workforce to capture trapped efficiencies and compete more effectively in the hyper-competitive market.
Our T-shaped professionals possess the complementary capabilities of a specialist and a generalist, achieving cross-fertilisation across disciplines to eliminate inefficiencies, functional silos, internal bottlenecks, frequent refactoring, & dependency delays, ultimately bending the cost curve. Webs Utility Team strategically optimise the collective intelligence of T-shaped professionals in square-shaped teams to achieve high innovation velocity and enable solutions for our clients.
By engage the flow management strategy of swarming and continuous improvement approach, Webs Utility Team bridge the gap between value stream mapping and its impact. As the shape spectrum continues to shift along the innovation continuum and evolves into the forms of Pi, M, COMB and E, Webs Utility Team tap into their agility by applying the concept of staff liquidity to deliver a holistic product and service.
