Mexico Extends the Delayed Mandatory Date of the New E-invoice Format to All Invoices

November 30, 2022


Mexico’s Tax Administration Service (SAT) has delayed the implementation of the new e-invoice system CFDI 4.0 once again. As we previously published, the delay initially  impacted only 'payroll' invoices (CFDI 4.0 de nomina). However, according to the recent announcement by the Mexican Government, the extended deadline will apply uniformly to every invoice type.  

The new e-invoice format will be mandatory from April 1, 2023not January 1, 2023, as originally planned.

Moreover, the transport document extension of the CFDI 4.0 invoice (Carta Porte) will not be required until August 1, 2023. The Folio Fiscal transmission, a requirement of CFDI 4.0, will not be mandatory until August 1, 2023.
