An overview of Egypt’s e-invoicing mandate

Mandatory e-invoicing in Egypt is rolling out in phases as planned, currently the e-invoice project is at the 4th phase where it’s mandatory for large Egyptian taxpayers to use e-invoicing. Note that from January 2022, the mandate will be effective for ALL taxpayers operating in Egypt and VAT can no longer be deducted from paper invoices. 

Egypt operates this e-invoice mandate with a so called “clearance model”, meaning that each e-invoice must be validated and approved by ETA (Egyptian Tax Authority) before it is sent to the customer. Taxpayers are obliged to acquire a HSM (Hardware Security Model) device or a USB token to digitally sign the e-invoice. In addition, Product codes must be added on the e-invoice according to the GPC (Global Product Classification) classification of the GS1 (Global Standards 1) standard.

The Minister of Finance Mohamed Maait announced on 3 March 2021 that registered taxpayers in Egypt who wish to join the e-invoicing system are able to do so until 15 May 2021.
The e-invoicing system should allow the Egyptian tax authorities to follow up all commercial transactions between companies, as the data of all invoices will be exchanged digitally and instantly. The Minister hopes e-invoicing can help eliminate the informal economy of Egypt.
