The signing of the Minutes concluded the dialogue meeting between the Ministry and the national coordination of the most representative professional organizations

The Directorate General of Taxes (DGI) and the Administration of Customs and Indirect Taxes (ADII) signed, in Rabat, Tuesday, January 15th 2019, under the supervision of Mr. Mohamed BENCHAABOUN, Minister of Economy and Finance, the Minutes concluding the dialogue meeting with the national coordination of the most representative professional bodies, during which it was agreed to suspend all the measures relating to the implementation of electronic invoicing.

This event, held in a sincere, responsible and clear way, was characterized by a serious and constructive debate around the new tax measures relating to electronic invoicing and the requirement of the corporate unified identifier (ICE) in commercial transactions and customs control measures.

In order to ensure the best implementation of the above measures, it was agreed to suspend all e-invoicing measures, stating that stakeholders decided that the regulatory text concerning the implementation of this new system will be drafted only in the context of a participatory approach with the relevant professional bodies.

Small traders are not required to present their ICE as part of their transactions. The DGI will be responsible to deal with the problem of the requirement of the ICE for different service providers.

With regard to customs control, it was agreed on the type of the commercial document to be presented as a proof of possession of the goods transported by trucks within the national territory, as well as the data included in this document, in addition to the adoption of simplified procedures for the collective transport of goods in line with professionals from the sector.

In addition, a decision was taken to involve the national coordination of the most representative professional bodies, signatory of the Minutes, in the discussion on value at customs.

The signatory parties also agreed to the creation of a committee to monitor the implementation of this agreement, and the organization of regional meetings in partnership with professional bodies in order to disseminate tax procedures.
