Learn here how to create a sales ticket in Holded
A simplified invoice, or sales ticket, is a proof of payment that is issued in purchase operations carried out with consumers or end users and that can only be generated in the national currency.
A clear example could be when you go to buy clothes in a store and they give you a purchase receipt that specifies each of the items you have bought with its price and the total of the purchase.
With the entry into force of the new invoicing regulations, tickets were renamed as simplified invoices.
What is the difference between an invoice and a ticket?
The main difference is that in an invoice, by having the tax information of the document, VAT can be deducted. That means, at the time of making the VAT tax form 303, you can add this invoice, with its accrued VAT. However, with a simplified ticket or invoice, you won't be able to do so.
In other words, we could say that the ordinary invoice is the one that is issued to companies and freelancers, and the simplified invoices or tickets to individuals.
The regulations allow a simplified invoice to be issued in some cases, such as, for example, when the amount does not exceed 400 euros (VAT included) or when the amount does not exceed 3,000 euros (VAT included) in retail sales operations.
