An amendment in the General Communiqué No. 509 has announced healthcare service providers and taxpayers providing medical supplies and medicines or active substances must use the e-invoice application from 1 July 2021.
The mandated scope for transition to e-invoice and e-arşiv invoice applications in the healthcare industry
Published in the Official Gazette the implementation will cover healthcare service providers who have signed contracts with the Social Security Institution (SSI) and all taxpayers providing medicines and active substances and medical supplies.
- Hospitals, medical centres, branch centres, dialysis facilities
- Other specialised treatment centers licensed by the Ministry of Health
- Diagnosis, medical examination and imaging centres
- Laboratories, pharmacies, medical device and material suppliers
- Optometry organisations, auditory centres, spas
- Private legal entities providing or producing human medicinal products, in addition to their unincorporated branches and pharmaceutical warehouses.
The transition process to e-invoice and e-arşiv invoice applications in the healthcare industry
Within this scope, organisations must use the e-invoice application as of 1 July. Organisations signing contracts with SSI after this date must use e-invoice prior to their issue of invoices to SSI.
From 1 January 2020 all organisations included in the e-invoice application scope have to apply the e-arşiv invoice on the date of e-invoice application. Any healthcare organisations included in the amendment will then have to apply the e-arşiv invoice on 1 July.
What are the benefits of e-invoice and e-arşiv invoice transition to the healthcare industry?
The digitisation process will minimise physical contact, a significant benefit following the Covid-19 outbreak. Furthermore, organisations will no longer have to prepare or store physical documents as they are stored electronically.
For organisations that issue invoices to SSI, transactions such as payment terms will become faster and more efficient via the e-invoice and e-arşiv invoice applications. In addition to the transfer of all invoice-related processes to the digital environment.
Organisations that carry out the e-issuance process via the TRA Portal or via a third-party integrator will benefit from easy access to documents, improved efficiency, and business continuity as a result.
