What you need to know about electronic invoicing in Argentina

17/10/2018

Starting on April 2019, the electronic invoice in Argentina will be mandatory for companies in all categories, including those that pay single tax since they will be able to use electronic invoices instead of fiscal controllers or both methods, depending on the company.

e-Invoicing has been present in the country for several years, but it is now when the AFIP has made a move towards its massification. The electronic invoice issuance system, called R.E.C.E., is regulated by resolutions 4290 and 4291, which objective is to achieve complete dematerialization of the market and to better control tax evasion.

e-Invoicing adoption schedule:

  • F through K: already issue electronic invoices
  • E: started on October 1, 2018
  • D: December 1st
  • C: February 1, 2019
  • B: March 1, 2019
  • A: April 1, 2019

These are some of the new specifications detailed in the regulations:

  • Those invoices type A must be issued individually, but with B or C invoices when the amount of the invoices is less than $5,000 (AR), they can be sent in batches with the amount that corresponds to the sum of each invoice. The invoice can be sent to the AFIP within five days before or after the date recorded on the invoice, except in the case of service provision where the transfer may be within 10 days before or after the date recorded on the invoice.
  • Businesses using fiscal controllers have six months to adapt their operations to the electronic model. Since August 2018, merchants and operations with final consumers can use electronic systems to replace paper tickets thanks to new fiscal controllers that will automatically send transaction information to the AFIP. This allows the Treasury to have information about the transactions in real time because they can generate a digital accounting ledger.
