Guatemala has announced the extension of new obligations to invoice with the Online Electronic Invoicing (FEL) system beginning in April 2021.
The Superintendence of Tax Administration (SAT) has approved a resolution by which additional public suppliers will be incorporated into the FEL system beginning April 1, 2021.
