It is worth noting that the Egyptian Tax Authority and the Ministry of Finance have identified a set of conditions that must be met in the invoice or electronic notification form to be approved. This is due to the financial desire to implement the service to the fullest and guarantee the rights of both employees and financiers of the tax community. These conditions stipulate the following:-

The invoice must include the electronic signature that was clarified in the procedures – of the issuing authority. Also, the unified code for the good or service mentioned on the invoice, which is obtained from the IRS.
Also, the company’s registration procedures in the electronic invoice system are required to be carried out using the tax registration number and the company’s email.
The necessary data must also be provided for the registration of the official of the company’s electronic tax invoice management system. For example, name, title, national number, mobile phone number or personal email.
Therefore, companies that have an “ERP SYSTEM” (a system for issuing invoices) must implement the necessary steps to integrate with the electronic tax invoice system at the authority. In addition to implementing test cases for system functions.
Among the conditions, is also the use of the portal of the electronic billing system (Portal). Especially for companies that do not have an “ERP SYSTEM” (a system for issuing invoices) according to the criteria set by the tax authority.
Hence, it is required to start issuing invoices electronically through the actual operating environment of the system only.
The goods registered in the invoice or notice must be local. This is because the goods imported from outside the Arab Republic of Egypt are not included in the electronic invoice system except by reselling these goods to persons or companies inside the Republic. Thus, the transaction is subject to the electronic invoice system in Egypt.

Advantages of the electronic invoice system for merchants:-

Although the use of the invoice is mandatory. As it has become an obligation for all Egyptian merchants to register in the system, whether by their own will and desire or in implementation of legal regulations, the system has many advantages and positive characteristics that benefit the merchant. Thus, it pushes him to search for registration procedures and quickly join the automated billing and notifications system. Certainly, these advantages are as follows:-

Expanding the scope of local trade: where the electronic invoice gives an opportunity to deal with government units and public bodies. As well as, public sector companies and the public business sector. Which leads to the expansion of the trader in his trade by opening large markets, which becomes within his capabilities to deal with them.

Benefiting from export subsidies: because failure to register in the electronic invoice system results in depriving the Egyptian merchant of export subsidies.

Reducing the administrative burden and reducing labor: Invoices are exchanged between companies in the electronic system with one click within a time not exceeding a few minutes. However, in the case of paper transactions, a single invoice would go through several stages on more than one employee. For example, the clerk and the administrator who reviews the paper and then the representative who delivers the invoice to the companies.

Saving some variable costs: from the money spent on papers, archiving papers, printing and sending costs.

Making a tax refund settlement on export inputs: It is not allowed for exporting traders to refund the tax on their export inputs, or make a settlement between the value of the subsidy due to them and the value of the taxes due to the tax authority resulting from their activity. Such as income tax and value added tax, except after joining the electronic invoice system.

Simplifying tax refund processes: As a result of the electronic transaction, all tax refund procedures can be implemented, as well as preparing or submitting returns without the need to complete invoices with companies as happens in the traditional way.

In addition, the position of the tax trader was promoted: by classifying his company among the companies with low tax risks. Whereas, the failure to implement the electronic billing system results in the company being classified among the high-risk companies, as it is in violation of the law and is not tax-compliant.
