E-invoicing mandate in Israel

Gain insights into the e-invoicing mandate in Israel, understand its implications and equip your organization to achieve and maintain regulatory compliance.

Israel moves towards real-time tax reporting

As of May 2024, Israel is entering a new era for business transactions. While traditionally a post-audit country, a Clearance CTC model is set to reshape the landscape for B2B transactions. The Clearance model the Israel Tax Authority (ITA) is currently implementing will require authorized dealers (taxpaying businesses established in Israel) to submit tax invoice data on a transactional level to the ITA in real-time in order to obtain an allocation number prior to sending the invoice to their commercial counterpart. Once the allocation number (clearance proof) has been obtained, it must be placed on the tax invoice and only then exchanged between the trading parties.

What is the implementation schedule?

5 May 2024

Mandate applies to invoices over 25,000 NIS (ca. 6,100 EUR)

1 January 2025

Mandate applies to invoices over 20,000 NIS (ca. 4,900 EUR)

1 January 2026

Mandate applies to invoices over 15,000 NIS (ca. 3,700 EUR)

What are the non-compliance penalties?

Issuer of the invoice (seller)

Currently, no penalties are imposed if sellers do not add Allocation Numbers to tax invoices. However, based on the experience of other jurisdictions, this is expected to change. Non-compliance penalties for e-invoicing in other parts of the world can range from paying a fine of at least 350 NIS (~90 EUR) to imprisonment for up to one year.

Receiver of the invoice (buyer)

Even though the buyer is not mandated to fetch invoices from the Israeli Tax Authorities Computerized Processing System (known as SHAAM) or issue any invoice responses (currently, not envisaged), buyers should control the purchase invoices they receive that lack an Allocation Number that ought to have one. In the opposite case, the buyer will not be allowed to deduct input VAT on such invoices.
