Jordan's new e-invoicing system can issue 60mln bills per day-Hanandeh

Amman, Dec. 29 (Petra)- Minister of Digital Economy and Entrepreneurship, Ahmed Hanandeh , said Jordan's national e- billing system is capable of issuing 60 million invoices per day, noting that it provides various aspects of security and information protection applied in international systems.

In a symposium organized by the Amman Chamber of Commerce (ACC), on Thursday, Hanandeh said the system is "simple and user-friendly", adding that all necessary technical checks were carried out to make it "suitable for use without any obstacles."

For his part, Director General of Income and Sales Tax Department (ISTD), Hossam Abu Ali, said all small merchants and craftspeople are not required to use the invoicing system, pointing to the formation of ad hoc teams for all beneficiary sectors, aimed to taking into account their privacy and facilitating networking procedures.

Sectors are granted sufficient time to address any challenges facing companies and taxpayers to align with the new e-billing system, he said, lauding its implementation as a "quantum leap" in the tax reforms applied in the Kingdom.

Meanwhile, ACC head, Khalil Haj Tawfiq, said some system-related reservations are made from Jordanian commerce chambers' leaders, sectors' representatives, and trade unions chiefs, which requires patience in its implementation and giving beneficiaries a trial period.

To ensure its adequate implementation, he stressed the need to raise awareness about the system's work mechanism by issuing explanatory leaflets and videos, calling on holding dialogues with stakeholders to in this regard to avoid any adverse outcomes in the future.
