The Electronic Invoice in Argentina: News about the Electronic Invoice Issuance System (R.E.C.E.)
Argentina is headed towards the mandatory widespread use of electronic invoices with a new billing schema starting in April 2019. The AFIP announced modifications to the electronic invoicing model through general resolutions 4290 and 4291 by introducing the Electronic Voucher Issuance System (R.E.C.E). All of this was done in order to achieve complete dematerialization of the market and to better control tax evasion.
Starting in April 2019, electronic invoicing will be mandatory for taxpayers in all categories. The AFIP has communicated the following schedule:
F through K: already issue electronic invoices
E: started on October 1, 2018
D: December 1st
C: February 1, 2019
B: March 1, 2019
A: April 1, 2019
In the case of merchants and operations with final consumers, the challenge is to move from the paper invoice of the fiscal controllers to a totally electronic system in commercial retail. Therefore since August 2018, electronic systems can be used to replace paper tickets thanks to new fiscal controllers that will automatically send transaction information to the AFIP.
