Taxpayers now required to issue tax withholdings document electronically by January 31, 2015
The SAT, through point I.2.7.5 of the Omnibus Tax Ruling for 2014, establishes the obligation to issue the certificates of retentions (withholdings e-document) for all taxpayers who issue digital invoices online including information on withholdings and payments for tax purposes.
Businesses and taxpayers may issue the e-document with their retentions on an annual basis by the 31 January, 2015 deadline for the issuing of withholdings pertaining to tax year 2014.
What is the electronic withholdings and payment information document?
An e-document that contains the information on the withholdings and payments made by taxpayers. This is constructed on the basis of a set of general tax data, to which complement is added with the corresponding tax in each case.
This way, taxpayers must generate a standard XML file with the information required for each item subject to withholding taxes set forth in the withholdings catalogue published by the SAT.
The receipt must be submitted to an Authorized PAC for incorporation of the digital tax stamp that certifies it, prior to its declaration to the SAT. Finally, the receipt is sent to the receiver so that they can present it as required for tax purposes.
EDICOM integral solution
EDICOM, as an Authorized Certification Provider (PAC), can supply an integral solution to automate the entire process of issuing e-documents with information on tax withholdings and payments.
This way, our software takes the data needed to build the XML directly from your ERP or accounting system, then stamps it and submits it to the SAT, before forwarding the receipt to the receiver of the withholdings. Our CFDI issuing platform provides a significant added value with the storage system for invoices under Official Mexican Regulation NOM-151-SCFI-2002.
From EDICOM we urge you to contact your commercial adviser as soon as possible, given the proximity of the deadline (January 31, 2015) for presentation of withholdings pertaining to the year 2014.
