Five new possible ways to issue e-invoices for taxpayers in Rwanda
On 14 May 2021, the Rwanda Revenue Authority announced the possibility for every taxpayer to choose one of the five available e-invoicing systems or EBM (Electronic Billing Machine).
Below is an overview of the EBM systems one can apply for:
E-invoicing software: a software system that is installed in the taxpayer’s computer. It is designed specifically for large and medium enterprises;
Electronic invoicing mobile system: a smartphone app that will issue an invoice via SMS containing the required content and a link to invoice details. This method is available exclusively for taxpayers with an annual turnover of less than FRW 20 million (ca EUR 16435.00) a year;
Online e-invoicing solution: an internet-based solution that allows taxpayers to issue invoices. Eligible for taxpayers from the service sector whose annual turnover does not exceed FRW 20 million and who do not issue invoices regularly;
Online Sales Data Controller: designed for taxpayers who use their own invoicing software systems and are willing to send e-invoices through the internet. Such systems will require integration with Rwanda Revenue Authority (RRA), for which a request will have to be sent at [email protected];
Virtual Sales Data Controller: a system that is similar to the Online Sales Data Controller. The only difference is that it also operates offline. This system needs integration with RRA as well, which is done by sending a request to the RRA e-mail address mentioned above.
