e-Invoicing in Argentina
CAEElectronic Authorization Code
The origins of e-Invoicing in Argentina date back to 2003, although its use did not become compulsory until July 2015. As in most of its neighbouring countries, it is gradually imposing mandatory use sector by sector and according to the net income of companies. The authority that runs it is the AFIP (Federal Public Revenue Administration). To sign up for the e-Invoicing regime, taxpayers must have the Electronic Authorization Code (CAE) issued by the AFIP.
As of August 2017, it is mandatory in Argentina the use of T-invoice for the Tourism industry, which defines VAT reimbursement of accommodation to foreign tourists.
