Much has been speculated about the new electronic invoicing in El Salvador, the Ministry of Finance has maintained great secrecy about it and only a previously selected client base is now in the development process to report their taxes in this totally digital format. Today we explain first-hand the steps to follow so that you too can join digital and electronic invoicing.
As RRD El Salvador, we approached the Ministry of Finance, specifically the General Directorate of Internal Taxes (DGII) to answer the most common questions about this new form of tax reporting.
- What is electronic invoicing in El Salvador?
The electronic invoice is an electronic document that supports transactions for the sale of goods and / or services issued, delivered and stored in fully electronic media and formats, through a billing process that uses procedures and information technology. Due to its electronic nature, it consists of a data file written using a common programming language, which does not have a particularly formal design but rather responds to a computer structure that must meet at least the formal requirements established in the Tax Code for each type of tax. document.
- What are the requirements that taxpayers must meet to implement electronic invoicing?
To start the electronic invoicing process, participating companies must have the will and commitment to adhere to the project, belong to the category of Large taxpayers, be solvent with their taxes and comply with the work plan established by the tax administration.
- What is the first step to carry out an electronic invoicing implementation in El Salvador?
We are currently in the pilot plan phase. Taxpayers who meet the requirements noted above and who wish to request authorization to use the electronic invoicing system can be authorized to do so by individual resolution. In the current phase of the electronic invoice pilot plan, we work directly with each of the participants in a personalized way.
- When will the pilot plan for electronic invoicing be completed and will it become overcrowded?
Once the legal reforms to the Tax Code are approved to fully integrate the electronic invoice project, the massification or implementation phase will depend on what said reforms establish in their transitory provisions, when they are approved, so the massification will occur later. of said process.
