Order Nº 340/2013 makes use of billing software certified by the AT mandatory
The November 22, 2013, the Ministry of Finance of Portugal published Ordinance Nº 340/2013, including modifications to the certification process for electronic billing programs.
The most important modification affects those companies using their own electronic billing software for accounting and tax records of their operations in Portugal. As of now, said software must be audited and certified by the DGCI (Direcção Geral de Contribuições e Impostos) tax authority in Portugal.
This way, all software developed in-house by companies will no longer be considered valid, even if it follows the XML file construction criteria with inclusion of the mandatory fields proposed by the tax authorities.
WHICH BUSINESSES ARE AFFECTED BY ORDINANCE Nº 340/2013?
Companies doing business under a Portuguese trade name.
Companies using their own electronic invoicing programs for accounting and tax purposes.
