Guideline for e-Archive in Turkey

What is the e-Archive? 

The invoice, which is the document of commercial transactions, has been included in the e-transformation process for a while. e-Archive is a system that enables the invoice to be prepared, sent, stored and reported electronically. The e-Archive invoice is the copy of the e-Invoice required to be kept by the taxpayer. e-Archive invoice is a one-way application that only includes sending invoices. Although it is an electronic invoice type, it can also be received on paper if desired. It is also obligatory to issue e-Archive invoices, but these invoices are not sent to the recipient. The e-Archive invoice can be sent via the company's own data processing systems or through intermediary institutions authorized by the Turkey Revenue Administration.

How to Send an e-Archive Invoice?

According to the Revenue Administration in Turkey, it is necessary to be included in the e-Invoice system in order to use e-Archive and send e-Archive invoices. However, there is no such limitation for recipients, e-Archive invoices can be sent to recipients who are not e-Invoice users.  Since e-Archive is not sent within the Revenue Administration, there is no mandatory format. For the same reason, sent e-Archive invoices should be reported daily to the Revenue Administration in the specified format.

For Whom are e-Archive Invoices Obligatory?

As of 01/01/2020, all e-Invoice taxpayers are obliged to switch to the e-Archive Invoice application. Except this; persons who are not taxpayers but invoice more than 30.000 TL on the same day, and taxpayers who issue invoices over 5.000 TL, including taxes, on the same day are also required to issue these invoices as e-Archive Invoices. In addition, organizations that do not have an obligation can optionally use e-Archive invoices.
