The electronic invoice in Colombia
Characteristics of the electronic invoice in Colombia
The electronic invoice in Colombia began in 1995 when it was recognized as equivalent to the paper invoice. In 2013 the tax authority (DIAN) began to work on a mass adoption project for the electronic invoice. It was inspired by the model in countries like Brazil, Chile and Mexico aiming to facilitate the interoperability between trading partners and to reduce tax evasion. Since 2019 the electronic invoice has been mandatory for all companies with a presence in the country. EDICOM has been certified by the DIAN to be a technological service provider and a Certification authority.
