Electronic Invoices and Delivery Notes for Turkey
In this blog post, I intend to give you an overview of our Document and Reporting Compliance Turkey solution, and also consolidate the different documentations we have available.
In Turkey, electronic invoicing is legally binding for companies under certain categories depending on their annual revenues and sector. Additionally, companies that are registered as electronic delivery note users, at the Turkish Revenue Administration, must send electronic delivery notes when sending goods to customers. SAP Document and Reporting Compliance for Turkey enables users to create, process, and monitor electronic invoices and delivery notes. Then this can be submitted to the Turkish Revenue Administration (TRA). The sending and receipt of such electronic documents must be done via the web services of the TRA. Electronic delivery notes must be issued and approved by the TRA before actual shipment of goods. The companies can integrate with authorized service providers who communicate with the TRA on behalf of these companies.
Currently for Invoices, the following electronic documents are supported by the SAP electronic invoicing solution.
- Basic Invoices
- Commercial Invoices
- Consumer Invoices
- Export Registration Invoices
- Incoming Basic Invoices
- Incoming Commercial Invoices
Basic invoices are sent to registered electronic invoice users, and no reply is expected from the
customer . Commercial eInvoices are also sent to registered eInvoice customers , but they are expected to accept/reject such invoices within a defined number of days. If receivers don’t respond within that period, the invoices are considered accepted. Receivers can pull the invoices into their SAP system as incoming basic/commercial invoices . Consumer invoices are sent to receivers who are not registered for electronic invoicing. Export registration invoices are sent to receivers who are either outside of Turkey or situated within free zones in Turkey.
In the electronic delivery note solution, the following electronic documents are supported by
SAP electronic delivery note solution.
- Delivery notes for registered users
• Delivery notes for unregistered users
• Incoming delivery notes
Delivery notes for registered users are sent to users who are registered with the TRA. They are expected to accept/reject the document s within a specified number of days. If they don’t respond within that period, the documents are considered accepted. These electronic documents can be pulled into the SAP system as incoming delivery notes. Delivery notes for unregistered users are sent to users who are not registered with the TRA, for example, receivers in scenarios of export sales.
