Example of a tax invoice

In order to comply with VAT regulations, for any sale of more than R50, you have to issue a tax invoice, with the word "tax invoice" printed on it. This is the most important document in the VAT system. The VAT Act prescribes that a tax invoice must contain certain details about the taxable supply as well as the parties to the transaction. This includes:

  • The value of the goods/services excluding VAT
  • The VAT amount (calculated at 14% of the above amount)
  • The value of the goods/services including VAT
  • The name, address and VAT registration number of the person buying the goods/services
  • And your own name, address and VAT registration number.

Here is an example of a Tax Invoice as published on the SARS website, for you to download and keep for your reference.
