Guatemala Updates the Electronic Invoicing Model


Beginning on 1 September, Guatemala’s Superintendency of Internal Revenue (SAT) will roll out updates to the Electronic Tax Document (DTE) system in line with the new Online Electronic Invoicing (FEL) scheme. The updates include changes to rules and validations, as well as the format of DTEs.

Electronic invoicing in Guatemala is evolving to reflect the reforms defined in the Agreement of the SAT Directory No. 13-2018. These changes will move the country from the FACE e-invoicing model, created in 2011, to the FEL model. The end date is 1 July 2021, when only the FEL system will be authorized for the issuance of electronic tax documents by companies registering for the first time with the tax authorities.

As a step toward full implementation of the FEL model, all taxpayers must migrate to the new version of the electronic file containing the DTE by 1 September 2020. To facilitate its adoption, the new XSD version has already been published: GT_Documento-0.2.1.xsd.It serves as a guide to generate any electronic tax document in Guatemala.

The following fields have been added to the new format:

  • Resolution number
  • Resolution date
  • Entity type

The SAT also introduced new tax documents this year.

Electronic invoicing in Guatemala is changing to adapt to the new online system, FEL. The EDICOM solution guarantees compliance with all requirements of the FEL model.

The EDICOM International eInvoicing Platform helps taxpayers transition to the new electronic invoicing system in Guatemala. The solution has been updated to comply with new scenarios, including the recently added DTEs (electronic tax documents) and the changes and validations being added to the XML file. EDICOM will partner with your company to migrate from the FACE model to FEL.
