New Obligations in Ecuador for e-Invoicing Implementation
In 2014, the Internal Revenue Service launched a progressive schedule for adopting the electronic invoice, which required certain companies and entities to join this system.
Through Resolution NAC-DGERCGC18-00000431, the Internal Revenue Service reforms two previous resolutions relating to taxpayers obliged to issue invoices, withholding receipts, referral guides and credit and debit notes through data messages and electronically signed: Resolutions NAC-DGERCGC17-00000430 and NAC-DGERCGC18-00000191.
The reform ruling updates the calendar contained in Resolution NAC-DGERCGC18-00000191, which details the start date of the obligation to issue electronic invoices for some taxpayers. The key dates are as follows:
As of 1 January 2019:
Those engaging in sales activities for new land transport vehicles, including motorcycles.
Individuals and companies that carry out activities related with the sale of liquid fuels derived from hydrocarbons and biofuels.
As of 1 June 2019:
Importers - individuals and companies - engaging in local sales activities for imported products.
Individuals and companies whose income from sales to the State in the previous tax year is equal to or greater than USD 100,000.
As of 1 January 2020:
Those involved in commercialization of heavy machinery and new or used roadbuilding equipment, whose sale responds or not to a habitual activity.
As of 1 June 2021:
Natural persons and companies, not included in the previous groups, in transactions with the State for amounts equal to or greater than USD 1,000.00, must issue an electronic invoice for each transaction.
