e-Invoicing in Chile

The Electronic Tax Document (DTE) is the electronic billing schema currently in force in Chile, and its management involves the adoption of certain requirements to be met by senders and receivers, including engaging in online communications with the SII or Internal Revenue Service.

What is the DTE?

A file generated in XML format and electronically signed by an electronic issuer, which is recognized for tax purposes.

Legislative situation

The electronic billing model in Chile is mandatory and regulated by transitory article 1 of Law nº 20.727. Said article lays down a schedule that distinguishes 5 different groups of taxpayers that must gradually join the electronic billing scheme between November 2014 and February 2018.

Process & features

EDICOM’s International Electronic Invoicing Platform implemented to civic services for the creation, sending and reception of the DTE (Electronic Tax Document).

► Obtaining the Folio Authorization Code (CAF):

 The issuer must obtain a range or set of authorized folios from the SII website. The SII delivers the CAF (Folio Authorization Code), which must be used in the construction process of the "electronic stamp" to be included in the DTE (Electronic Tax Document)

Dual Signature: electronic stamp & e-signature:

 The CAF integrates a private key that is used to encrypt the electronic stamp. The stamp is obtained from a fixed data string with certain billing information.

The invoice must also be signed with a digital certificate issued to the sender.

► Declaration to the SII (Internal Revenue Service):

The issuer must submit the DTE to the SII and wait for online confirmation before sending the bill on to the customer.
