In practice, it often seems that invoicing is nothing but “writing receipts”. Invoicing is the creation of invoices, which represent valid accounting documents, as the consequence of a contractual relation. In order to create an invoice, it is necessary to comply with few laws. This means that invoices need to be created in accordance with the Law on Accounting, the Law on Contracts and Torts, Companies Act, Value Added Tax Law.
For example, the Article 9 Paragraph 2 of the Law on Accounting stipulates that a valid accounting document is a written or electronic record of a business change that has taken place, which contains all the data necessary to post the change in business records in a way that its grounds, type and content in the accounting document are unequivocal. The next paragraph of the same article of the Law on Accounting stipulates that INVOICE is actually that valid accounting document.
For example, according to the Law on Contracts and Torts, a receipt is the document which closes a deal, while an invoice confirms that the job has been done. Contractual relation is the relation between two specific parties, which authorises one party (creditor) to demand a certain expenditure, action or abstention from certain performance from the other party, while the other party is obliged to complete it.
The Article 22 of the Companies Act regulates the use of business name and other data in the documents. It prescribes the data, which shall be part of business letters and other documents, including electronic documents. The Article 51 of the same law stipulates that this provision related to the business name also applies to entrepreneurs.
The Article 42 Paragraph 3 of the VAT Law prescribes mandatory invoice elements. If a receipt does not contain some of these elements related to the VAT shown in the receipt, the previous tax deduction right cannot be realized, i.e. VAT will be lost, which is regulated by the Article 28 Paragraph 2 Item 1 of the VAT Law.
When it comes to trade in goods, we shall be aware that the Rulebook on the Trade in Goods Records is still in effect, and that its Article 6 Paragraph 3 describe the terms bill of landing, receipt, delivery note, etc.
