e-Invoicing in Peru

The electronic proof of payment (CPE) responds to the e-billing model in force in Peru since 2010. Through the electronic system provided by the SUNAT (National Customs and Tax Administration), an invoice issued by electronic means has the same legal value as its paper equivalent, and provides greater advantages in terms of security and optimization of administrative management.

The rollout of this electronic billing system by companies involves the adoption of certain technical requirements to be fulfilled by senders and receivers, which include engaging in online communications with the SUNAT.

Legislative situation

The electronic billing system in Peru has been in force since 2010. In December 2013, Resolution 374-2013 required certain groups of businesses to implement the e-invoicing system. Recent initiatives, although no firm decision has yet been announced, indicate that the SUNAT intends to extend the mandatory nature of the regime to all taxpayers by 2017.

Process & features

EDICOM’s international electronic billing platform provides specific services that align you with the SUNAT (National Customs and Tax Administration) for everything concerning the issuing, reception and preservation process for electronic payment receipts (CPE).

► Authorization as “Electronic Issuer”:

Any company wishing to apply to join the electronic taxpayer regime must overcome the approval process to become an electronic transmitter, requiring:

  • Authorization: The issuer should apply to the SUNAT through the Sunat Online Operations (SOL) website.
  • Approval: They must pass a series of technical trials where the SUNAT assesses whether the solution correctly manages the creation, issuance and forwarding of the payment receipts (invoices).
  • Electronic certificate: To apply the e-signature mechanisms, it is necessary to obtain an electronic certificate issued with the Webtrust security seal.

Creation and electronic signature:

The platform automatically captures the data from the client ERP and transforms it into the XML standard set by the SUNAT. The system includes specific e-signature services to ensure document integrity and authenticity.

► Declaring and obtaining the CDR (Confirmation of Receipt):

The solution declares the CPE online by means of the appropriate web service connections. SUNAT registers and validates the electronic payment receipt (CPE), and issues a receipt acknowledgement (CDR), which is integrated with the invoice data.

► Invoice integration and distribution:

Transparently, the electronic invoice, validated in accordance with the legal stipulations, is transformed for integration with the client’s internal management system.

The solution recognizes the invoice recipient, and depending on who the receiver is, forwards it through the channel required by each client.
