Electronic invoicing, also known as e-invoicing, is gradually gaining acceptance worldwide, including Israel.

The Finance Committee of the Israel government approved for second and third call the plan to reduce the use of fictitious invoices, promoted by the Minister of Finance, and the Tax Authority as part of the economic plan for 2023-2024. As part of the plan, the Tax Authority will operate a digital control system on transactions between dealers, by assigning allocation numbers to invoices.

In accordance with the approved plan, at the beginning on January 1, 2024, the Tax Authority will assign a unique number online to tax invoices whose value exceeds NIS 25,000. The threshold will decrease in the subsequent five years, so by January 1, 2028, the threshold will be NIS 5,000. From the beginning of the implementation of the program, there will be an obligation to obtain an allocation number from the Tax Authority for invoices in the prescribed amounts. Tax invoice without allocation approval will not be allowed to deduct the input tax.

Following the situation Israel, there are businesses in Israel that will require additional time to comply with the requirements of the new eInvoicing regulation. Hence, the Tax Authority decided to allow the deduction of input tax through a tax invoice without an allocation number, until March 31, 2024. However, as the Tax Authority is already prepared for the implementation of the law, customers that are ready in time and will be requesting allocation numbers starting on January 1, 2024, will be receiving the allocation numbers and will even benefit from speeding up the handling of VAT refunds.
