The SUNAT decided to adjust these provisions due to the COVID-19 global health crisis. The resolution establishes 1 January 2021 as the final date for compliance with both requirements.
In order for companies to be listed in the Electronic Service Provider Registry and be authorized as a PSE, they must obtain the ISO/IEC-27001 certification.
The ISO/IEC-27001 is an international accreditation used to guarantee security in information management.
Use of the SEE - OSE and/or SEE – SOL
Electronic issuers sending e-invoices, e-sales slips, and e-bills to the SUNAT or to voluntarily participants must begin issuing these documents through an Electronic Service Operator (OSE) or Online Operator (SOL) by January 2021.
This requirement affects major national taxpayers from the Intendency of Lima or the regional offices with annual profits equal to or greater than 300UIT.
Thanks to the changes outlined in this resolution, PSEs will have another six months to obtain the ISO certification and major taxpayers will have time to adapt their systems to the SUNAT requirements.
Status of Electronic Invoicing in Peru
Peru’s electronic invoicing project began in 2014 with the implementation of the Invoice Emission System (SEE). Following in the footsteps of neighboring countries like Colombia, Brazil and Mexico, the Peruvian government decided to phase in e-invoicing over time. Implementation was meant to conclude this year with the incorporation of 100% of taxpayers. However, the global health crisis has made that goal impossible and the end date has been postponed until next year.
In Peru, the electronic invoice is called an Electronic Payment Receipt (CPE). Currently, the CPE documents that must be generated electronically are:
Sales receipts (individual or daily summary)
Witholding slips (CRE)
Advance slips (CPE)
Public Service Receipts
Delivery and Reception of Electronic Payment Receipts (CPEs)
To exchange CPEs, businesses must contract an electronic service provider capable of generating the documents in line with the SUNAT requirements for document integrity and authenticity.
CPEs are signed electronically and validated by an Electronic Service Operator (OSE) that has been authorized by the SUNAT. To validate the documents, the OSE issues a reception receipt (CTR) to the SUNAT so that the document can be easily tracked.
The EDICOM electronic invoicing solution automatically sends and receives CPEs by integrating with your company’s internal management system or ERP. It is fully compliant with the SUNAT specifications.
