In a significant development, Uruguay has broadened the scope of electronic invoicing, now applying it to a majority of taxpayers. A newly issued resolution outlines a compulsory timetable for the gradual integration of electronic invoicing into the existing framework. The primary objective behind this universalization initiative is to streamline and modernize the documentation procedures for taxpayers, marking a notable shift in the country’s regulatory landscape.
Specifically, taxpayers registered for Value Added Tax (VAT) are mandated to transition to electronic invoicing by the deadline of May 1, 2024. This deadline serves as a crucial milestone in the comprehensive adoption of digital invoicing practices. Notably, exceptions to this requirement exist for taxpayers exclusively involved in agricultural activities characterized by lower income levels.
Stay abreast of these pivotal changes as Uruguay takes significant strides towards the widespread implementation of electronic invoicing, with a focus on modernization and efficiency in the taxation documentation realm.
Effective date: May 1, 2024
