TicketBAI in Araba

TicketBAI in Araba.

The compliance law TicketBAI was also introduced in the Province of Araba. In this blog post you will learn the details about the implementation of TicketBAI in Araba. TicketBAI compliance is established in Araba by the Foral Decree 48/2021, of October 5th, and aims to prevent tax tampering.

Requirements in Araba

Software in the billing or point-of-sale system must generate XML files for each transaction, sign them with a digital certificate, and send them to Araba’s Provincial Council. The software must also provide a QR code and ID code to be printed on the invoice. Further, the software chains invoices into a sequence so their trace can be verified in a sequence and stores their XML files for an established period of time.

SII obligations in Araba

TicketBAI affects those who are currently obliged to SII compliance. In Álava, TicketBAI does not exempt the taxpayer from SII obligations. TicketBAI is sending the information according to the “Issued Invoices” book. You do not need to submit the same information twice to the tax authority - only the additional books.
