E-invoicing in Turkey

e-Fatura (e-invoice) and e-Arşiv (e-archive) applies to the following sectors:

  • e-commerce
  • real-estate
  • construction
  • accommodation

There are two types of e-invoices in Turkey:

  1. e-Fatura for B2B and B2G transactions; and
  2. e-Arşiv for all B2C transactions, plus any B2B transactions where the customer is below the e-invoice registration threshold. Many small businesses use third-party suppliers to produce these class of invoices. The current e-Arşiv threshold is TRY 30,000. This will be lowered to TRY 10,000.

Since 1 July 2021, any businesses that does not have the obligation to register in the TRA should declare invoices with a total of TRY 5.000 or more in the-Arşiv format.

Once over this threshold, the taxpayer must register with the Turkish Revenue Authority to use e-Fatura invoices.
