With barely two years since the beginning of the initiative Mexico has firmly established its system as one of the pioneering eInvoice standards globally. CFDI has proven to be a dynamic solution allowing businesses issuing invoices to benefit from important advantages in managing their administrative processes.
Mexican companies must issue their invoices in electronic format, through a procedure that requires them to engage the services of an authorized provider (ACP or Authorized Certification Provider) to validate the document created, certifying it and declaring it to the country’s tax authorities.
This system is being widely adopted, as shown by the SAT (Tax Administration Service) statistics for the period up to 31 January 2013:
- 581,924 taxpayers issuing invoices following this model.
- 669,323,719 CFDIs (Digital Tax Invoices) issued in the country.
Edicom consolidates CFDI issuing service
Edicom became the first authorized ACP in Mexico, gaining this accreditation in November 2010.
Since then, Edicom has strengthened its position in the market as one of the country’s major ACPs, with rising figures confirming a growing trend in the number of CFDIs issued by the certification service.

Edicom provider chosen by the biggest billers
The more than 669 million CFDIs issued and cited in this analysis were generated by a total of 581,924 taxpayers.
We have identified how 8% of these invoices are certified by Edicom, when actually only 2,830 taxpayers (less than 1% of the total) are users of the service provided by Edicom.
