DIAN grants more than 1,000 Colombian companies an extension until December to implement e- invoicing


Colombia is moving towards massive widespread use of e-invoicing.

High income taxpayers were the first to be summoned to implement this model. On June 1, resolution 010 of February 6, 2018 came into force, requiring the large-scale Colombian taxpayers cited in resolution 076 of December 2016 to join the e-Invoicing model in Colombia as of September 1.

However, the DIAN recently published an extension granted to over 1000 businesses that had applied for another three months to adapt to the electronic system. This additional term was granted for justified technological reasons that give rise to impediments to rolling out e-invoicing by September 1, 2018. So, for the taxpayers indicated in this DIAN document, the mandatory start-up date is now December 1, 2018.

From EDICOM, as specialists in e-Invoicing projects, we recommend starting to plan the adaptation to the e-invoicing model as soon as possible, as it involves modifications in the way companies work, both in-house and externally. Specialized EDICOM technicians will study each case to propose and implement the solution that best suits each business.
