The electronic invoice in Ecuador
Characteristics of the electronic invoice in Ecuador
The Ecuadorian tax authority (SRI) issued a communique in 2009 stating a reform to the issuance of electronic documents. In 2014 the SRI published a rolling timeline mandating that certain companies and government entities join the invoicing system. The SRI began to progressively include new special taxpayer groups in the electronic invoicing system. Through resolution No. NAC-DGERC-GC18-00000431, the SRI reformed two previous resolutions regarding taxpayers obligated to issue electronic invoices, withholding documents, waybills and credit and debit notes through standardized files with electronic signatures: Resolutions No. NAC-DGERCGC17-00000430 y No. NAC-DGERCGC18-00000191.
