Carta Porte sanction extension
Mexico has been in the midst of some turbulent e-invoicing changes, the most notable being the transition to the CFDI 4.0. Kofax supports the CFDI 4.0 as part of our e-invoicing solution today.
For specific transportation goods, the Mexican government also imposes further obligations on Mexican taxpayers, who are required to process the ‘Carta Porte’ as part of its CFDI. Kofax has successfully supported the Carta Porte since January 2022.
Coinciding with the Carta Porte launch, the Mexican government initially afforded some concessions to Mexican taxpayers, allowing a grace period whereby taxpayers would not been sanctioned for missing or inaccurate information in the Carta Porte. This owes largely to the complexities associated with the Carta Porte and its relatively fast implementation.
These concessions have now been extended to 31 December 2023.
From 1 January 2024, penalties will come into effect, meaning taxpayers will need to ensure information contained within the Carta Porte is accurate and complete, to avoid sanctions.
