Edicom NF-e adapts to new tax transparency legislation in Brazil
NF-e issuing solutions from Edicom now have the new interfaces as stipulated in Technical Note 2013.003, which sets out the modifications to be carried out to XMLs in compliance with version 6r. The changes enable disaggregation of taxes that affect the consumer in the electronic document generated.
NF-e modifications are determined, on one hand, by Law 12.741/2012 on Transparency of Local, State and Federal Taxation, which comes into force on 10 June 2013, and, on the other, by the Consumer Protection Code, defined in Law 8.078/1990, which rules that a consumer is any natural or legal person that acquires or uses a product or service as the final recipient of the same.
In this context, every legal person must furnish the individuals acquiring products or services with all the information concerning the amount of taxes that determine the final sale price.
The new XML schema must be in production from June 1, but is available for testing as of 15 May
