Mexico’s tax administration is continuing with its policy to improve electronic invoicing as well as the online digital tax document. These improvements stem from the tax administration’s conversations with key actors involved in the digital transformation of the country such as entrepreneurs, accountants, system developers and providers that are authorized and certified.

After communicating the implementation of the new version (3.3) of the online digital tax document and the incorporation of the updates for some of its complements, the tax administration has now published some guidelines that will affect taxpayers in the next few months. They are as follows:
- The first of these guidelines directly affects the mandatory use of version 3.3 and the migration to the new schema. Version 3.3 will go into effect on July 1, 2017, however, version 3.2 may continue to be used to issue invoices until November 30, 2017. As of December 1, 2017, the only version valid for issuing electronic invoices will be version 3.3.
- As for the payment receipt complement, it will be optional as of July 1, 2017, but only with version 3.3 of the electronic invoice and it will be mandatory starting on December 1, 2017.
- Finally, the approval process for the cancellation of electronic invoices will take effect on January 1, 2018.
All of the improvements being made by the tax administration are aimed at improving data quality and increasing ease of use for taxpayers. Nearly 90% of taxpayers have already migrated to version 3.3 of the online digital tax documents.
