Due to the new electronic billing regulation designated Nfc-e, , all points of sale must communicate with the Sefaz (Tax Agency), just as they did with the Nfe. It is already mandatory in eight states and will be adopted in the remaining eighteen over the next 24 months.
The NFC-e or electronic invoice for consumers entails several benefits and added values for your company, simplifying procedures:
The use of official Electronic Invoice Issuing Equipment (ECF) is no longer required.
Any printer, thermal or laser, may be used without prior authorization by Public Administrations.
Compliance with current obligations (Download printout Reduction Z and Reading X, Summary Map, Seals, Revalidation, Notification of Incidents, Cessation, etc.);
Outlay on paper significantly reduced;
Use of unaccredited paper, with less storage time requirements;
Exemption from technical audits.
NFC-e transmitted to Public Administrations in real-time;
No need for software approval by Public Admin.;
No prior authorization required for hardware used;
Flexibility of future expansion of points of sale in periods of intense business activity, without prior approval by the Public Administrations;
Possibility of using new mobile technologies (issuance via tablets and smart phones);
Integration of physical and virtual sales platforms.
