The Chamber of Auditors is urging the Tax Administration to delay the implementation of pre-reservation of tax receipts for transactions over NIS 25,000 until January 1, 2025. This mechanism was put in place to combat tax evasion and the use of fictitious receipts. It would not recognize receipts without a pre-reserved number when writing off VAT. The initiative was supposed to take effect on April 1, 2024.
The Chamber of Auditors believes that the postponement is necessary due to ongoing war-related issues affecting reservists and evacuees. Their businesses have already been affected by the conflict, and they cannot afford additional bureaucracy. The statement warned that if the decision not to postpone is made, unprecedented measures will be taken.
