With URA’s implementation of the Electronic Fiscal Receipting and Invoicing Solution (EFRIS), a medium that is being used by all businesses to manage the issuance of receipts and invoices for tax purposes, many challenges have arisen for companies that have pre-existing accounting systems.
At the moment, any person who conducts business and is Value Added Tax (VAT) registered is required to issue an e-invoice or receipt for any supply or sale regardless of whether the supplied or sold good is subject to VAT at a standard rate, zero rate or exempt. However, those who are VAT registered may voluntarily use e-receipts for record-keeping, quick processing of tax claims or refunds and fair tax assessments, among others.
URA has advised companies to either manually process invoices and receipts through their URA Web portal (capturing invoices and receipts twice, both in the company’s accounting system and the URA system) or integrate the company’s existing accounting system to EFRIS.
The easier option of the two is clearly, integrating the company’s already existing accounting system to EFIS. So how do you do this? Well, URA gave a go-ahead for exceptional software companies to help fix this challenge.
