With this implementation of south Africa tax billing format, the shipping address is included on the format, so that the template is categorized as sales invoice template. With this tax invoice template, the prices defined on the form excluding VAT, i.e. VAT is added separated. As detailed on the SARS (South African Revenue Services) site, Value-Added Tax is commonly known as VAT. VAT is an indirect tax on the consumption of goods and services in the economy. Revenue is raised for government by requiring certain businesses to register and to charge VAT on the taxable supplies of goods and services. These businesses become vendors that act as the agent for government in collecting the VAT.

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:

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

It is of upmost importance to adhere to these valid tax invoice requirements. It is found that the South African Revenue Services (SARS) became very strict when they review or audit a Value added tax (VAT) period.

If you are a service provider that does not need the shipping address section on the invoice form, see South Africa Tax Invoice Template (Service) here on We are also providing a special template that is suitable for attorney, where a "Date" column is added to the invoice detail section. Please refer to Free Attorney Invoice Template (South Africa Currency) for the details. All these templates and layout work with Invoice Manager for Excel (namely Uniform Invoice Software) (UIS), which is able to turn a simple Microsoft Excel invoice template into a complete invoicing software system.
