Mexico City

The Mexican tax authority (Servicio de Administración Tributaria – “SAT”) has announced changes to its CFDI (Comprobante Fiscal Digital por Internet) electronic invoicing system. The changes affect both the CFDI issue and receipt/payment process flows, and will be effective from January 1 2022.

CFDI 4.0

The latest version of the electronic invoice (CFDI) will include the following changes:

  • new required data elements for invoicing and B2C invoice reports (e.g. ticket portals and POS solutions)
  • addition of postal code of customer
  • addition of tax regime/domicile of customer
  • addition and validation of customer name
  • indication if the CFDI relates to exports
  • indicate if CFDI is subject to taxes
  • addition of the reason for a cancellation of an e-invoice (with four standard options)
  • changes to service response codes related to cancellation of e-invoices
  • addition of new validation elements

In addition, there are also major changes to the withholding and payment CFDI 2.0 and Payment Receipt Complement 2.0.
