Tax invoices are usually issued by whoever is supplying the goods or services. However, in special cases, the recipient of the goods or services may create a tax invoice and send it to the supplier (sometimes with payment). This is known in Australia as a recipient created tax invoice (RCTI), or in New Zealand a buyer created tax invoice.

There are rules and regulations governing the use of recipient created tax invoices. For all the details, speak to your accounting advisor or visit the ATO website or IRD website.

Creating an RCTI (as a customer)

MYOB Essentials doesn't have the ability to create a dedicated recipient created tax invoice. As a workaround, you can create a bill for the supplier and use the Notes to supplier field to include any additional information required to identify it as a recipient created tax invoice.

Bill with recipient created tax invoices entered into notes field

When you pay the supplier, enter the payment to close the bill. To email a copy of the RCTI to the supplier, display the bill and click Print. Save the displayed PDF and email it to the supplier.

Receiving an RCTI (as a supplier)

If you've received an RCTI from a customer, record it in MYOB Essentials like any other invoice. When the customer pays their bill, record the payment against the invoice.
