What changes are happening as a result of the new CT-e version (3.0) in Brazil?
On December 4, 2017, the new version (3.0) of the CT-e (Knowledge of Electronic Transport) went into effect for all transport and transport service providers. As of this date, SEFAZ does not consider version 2.0 of electronic documents valid.
The most significant changes with this version are:
CT-e OS (model 67): version 3.0 allows the issuance of this document for new services such as the transport of people, securities, or excess baggage.
CT-e Consultation: The consultation period is extended to 180 days from the date of issue.
Globalized CT-e: A field is included to record service provision operations within the state in cases where there is a need to inform several recipients of certain deliveries.
Disagreement of Service Provision: This event might be used by the recipient of the service to inform SEFAZ that it disagrees with the provision for the service requested.
Value Transport Guide: A new event will be added, which will be used only in the CT-e OS, model 67, to establish better communication between related value transport guides.
Changes in DACTE: The excluded fields in the CT-e were excluded in DACTE where changes in the date/ time format, including time zone are also applied. The above changes all apply to DACTE.
All the changes in CT-e are designed to improve the quality of information and make it easier for taxpayers to use.
The Issuer of a CT-e will always be a logistics provider who performs transportation services for a customer who needs a service for moving goods. Thus, this document represents the electronic invoice for the logistics sector in Brazil.
How to start issuing CT-e 3.0?
The disparity of the fiscal documents in Brazil and the complexity involved in declaring them to the governmental authorities create challenges for companies when exchanging mandatory electronic documents such as the NF-e, NFS-e and the CT-e.
Finding an efficient and automatic solution is essential to save companies time and money. For this reason, EDICOM has created an integrated and automatic solution to facilitate communications between companies and their partners that are ready to issue version 3.0.
The solution is called Portal DF-e and is designed to manage the mission and receipt of tax documents with a single platform that is managed directly by the ERP system. The platform will sign the document electronically, guaranteeing the integrity and authenticity of the data and will send the XML to clients electronically. It provides security, traceability and complete data integration with its partners with three fundamental characteristics:
Cloud integration: EDICOM provides enterprises with a SaaS (Software as a Service) solution, enabling seamless and rapid integration with any management system (ERP) in the market.
B2B2G connectivity: EDICOM offers a secure communications network for the exchange of Electronic Tax Documents with all of its public and private recipients.
Multi-pattern: In order to deal with a huge volume of transactions, EDICOM has a powerful data transformation module capable of generating documents according to the specific electronic schema of each tax body.
