Those who are prohibited from issuing tax invoices

  1. Non-VAT registered personsOf course, since tax invoices are VAT registered or VAT-registered, then non-VAT-registered entrepreneurs cannot issue tax invoices, and including tax invoices received from non-VAT-registered people is not considered a legally valid tax invoice as well. So if you’re going to get a tax invoice from a seller who doesn’t have VAT, be careful not to use it, otherwise we’ll be fined.
  2. Those who are VAT registered but do not actually sell goods or provide services.An entrepreneur who writes down real VAT but doesn’t sell real goods or services can’t issue a tax invoice, and the tax invoices they receive can’t be used as purchase taxes either, or what they call “fake tax invoices.”
