E-Invoicing Requirements in Kenya

In Kenya, e-invoicing is becoming increasingly prevalent, with the government mandating VAT-registered businesses to adopt a compliant Electronic Tax Register (ETR) to record their transactions.

E-invoicing is mandatory for VAT-registered taxpayers who must adopt a compliant Electronic Tax Register (ETR) to transmit tax invoice data. To confirm validity, a valid electronic tax invoice must include key features such as a buyer PIN, control unit serial and invoice numbers, and a QR code.
