There are just a few weeks to go until a new breakthrough takes place in the spread of e-invoicing in Argentina. July 1 is the deadline for migration to this mandatory system for all taxpayers who had net sales between $500,000 and $ 2,000,000 in 2015. This is set forth in General Resolution N° 3.749 and its subsequent amendments.
Bear in mind that these taxpayers should have adapted to e-billing by last March 31, the deadline for the previous extension. However, the Federal Public Revenue Administration (AFIP) then decided to set out a progressive schedule to facilitate the rollout of this technology, especially in small businesses.
In fact, companies that earned income of less than $500,000 in 2015 now have until November 1 to become e-invoice issuers. After that date, other taxpayers will also have to follow suit, regardless of their sales figures, as is the case of dairy operators, stockpilers or tobacco industry brokers and those signed up to informative regimes. This is recorded in the adaptation calendar published by the AFIP.
As stated in the article, “Electronic invoicing is more than just a tax obligation; it is a key element to improve operational issues and relations with SMEs.” In fact, the specialist from EDICOM highlights 7 great benefits for e-invoicing issues, summarized here:
Economic savings of up to 90% compared to traditional paper-based procedures.
Greater productivity and speedy processing thanks to automation of tasks.
Better accessibility to invoices, as they can be consulted by a simple file search in the management programme.
Carbon footprint is reduced, due to lower investment in paper and printing.
Ease of adopting other new technologies in the company and opening up to international trade.
