Our Permanent Electronic Invoicing Observatory recently detected important progress in the electronic billing system in force in Peru (electronic payment receipts). Government authorities are seeking to exert greater fiscal control and modernize accounting management for small and medium-sized businesses in Peru through the electronic system.
Given these active policies, in which the Peruvian government requires an initial group of large companies to issue invoices with the electronic schema, EDICOM has joined in by updating its electronic invoicing platform in line with the requirements demanded by SUNAT. This way, EDICOM can provide companies engaging in trading relations in Peru with a solution that automates the creation, sending and safekeeping of electronic invoices.
E-BILLING SOLUTION IN PERU
Data are taken from the client's internal management system. The data are processed according to the electronic format provided by SUNAT (UBL 2.0.)
Electronic signature mechanisms that ensure document integrity and authenticity through advanced data encryption techniques are applied. An electronic certificate registered with the SUNAT must be issued previously.
The data demanded by SUNAT are submitted by web service communication with special delivery guarantees. SUNAT validates and registers the data on its platform, returning a receipt confirmation (CDR – Constancia de Recepción) that is integrated with the invoice data.
The EDICOM platform triggers the mechanisms to deliver the electronic bill to clients (recipients). Sending can take place through EDICOM’s own private network, which provides the documents with special security and traceability conditions (EDI system, private web portal for receivers), or by e-mail.
In the event of any possible anomaly in the bill, the solution automatically notifies the invoice status after validation in the SUNAT systems:
Accepted – Accepted with Comment – Rejected
The proof of payment, duly validated by SUNAT, is archived in the EDICOM DPC (Data Processing Center).
The data transformation process starts up automatically, for fully transparent integration of the bill with the client’s internal management system.
As required by law, the EDICOM platform enables online access with special security and confidentiality conditions where recipients can view the receipts issued for a 1-year period.
