Enter recipient-created invoices in Xero

Add a recipient-created tax invoice (RCTI) in Xero when the buyer determines the value of taxable goods and services they receive.

When do I use RCTIs?

Use RCTIs if your customer buys taxable goods or services from you and creates the tax invoice themselves.

For example, a sugar mill buys sugarcane from you and they analyse it to find its value. The sugar mill then sends you an RCTI (and maybe, the payment) for the sugarcane.

Add an RCTI in Xero

  1. Add the RCTI into Xero as you enter a bill. You can also import multiple RCTIs into Xero.
  2. Create the invoice in another program, like Microsoft Word or Excel using one of the following templates.
