Mexico’s Tax Administration is carrying out specific updates on its CFDI, designed to ensure a better experience of using e-invoicing and to remedy incidents that are detected over time with the application of this system.
The first major change will come with the new CFDI version 3.3. The new version includes changes in structure, data format, data features and data pools/catalogues, as well as in validations and calculation rules. Specifically, we highlight the following changes:
New validation rules are applied to check the coherence of the data and prevent possible errors.
Twenty-three catalogues will be used to improve data accuracy, some of them internationally accepted. Through these, the information for certain fields will be designed.
The existing information will be integrated with the billing process, so that when submitting returns, some fields will be displayed prefilled.
The second change implies including a new complement, the payment receipt complement. The version 1.0 of this complement must be included in the CFDI issued to confirm the receipt of payments in partial instalments and in those cases where the amount due is received in a single payment, but this is not covered when CFDI was issued, even in the case of credit transactions which are fully paid at a later date than that of issuance of the corresponding CFDI.
The third change affects the cancellation of CFDI. In this update, the tax administration has defined in detail, the procedures for cancelling online digital tax documents. In particular, it has defined new rules for how the receiving company can cancel an online digital tax document that has been accepted as well as one that hasn’t been accepted.
