Tequila, Tacos & Taxes: An Overview of Mexico’s Tax & E-Invoicing System

Tequila, Tacos & Taxes: An Overview of Mexico’s Tax & E-Invoicing System

Join us on Wednesday, September 11 at 15:00 London BST for an in-depth look at Mexico's local and international tax system with a particular focus on the country's revolutionary e-invoicing system. Obviously, tacos and tequila shots are not included. 

In this webinar, you will learn all about Mexico's domestic and international tax system, what's trending in the sector, and some of the main advantages of setting up a business in the country. 

A big chunk of the event will be dedicated to Mexico's e-invoicing system, one that has led the way for other similar systems across the region.  

With its use being mandatory since 2014 and now fully adopted for 100% of the country's economic transactions, the Digital Internet Tax Receipt (CFDI en español) is a structured file in XML format for electronically declaring different fiscal documents (invoices, credit notes, employee payroll, etc.,) before Mexico's tax authority. Since its implementation, the CFDI has grown in success with the volume of digital invoices issued between 2011 and 2017 close to quadrupling from 1.7 billion to 6.5 billion.

Given its efficiency, plenty of countries throughout Latin America and the rest of the world have studied Mexico's CFDI in an effort to develop and improve their own e-invoicing systems.

Are you looking to learn more about Mexican tax and the country's trend-setting e-invoicing system?
