Colombia DIAN Delays E-invoicing Mandate for All But Largest Companies
Colombia’s tax authority, the DIAN, announced this week that it is delaying its e-invoicing mandate for all but the largest taxpayers operating in the country.
The DIAN had previously said that all companies that pay VAT in Colombia would have to adopt mandatory e-invoicing by Jan. 1, 2019. However, the DIAN this week said that the only companies that will be required to comply with the mandate starting Jan. 1 are those that the DIAN has identified as Large Taxpayers.
E-invoicing mandate delay for smaller companies in Colombia
Companies not on the list of Large Taxpayers will not have to comply with the e-invoicing mandate on Jan. 1. The DIAN will publish a schedule for compliance for smaller companies, but the agency did not specify a date of publication for the schedule, nor did it give any details as to when scheduled mandatory compliance might begin.
In the same statement, the DIAN confirmed that it will validate invoices itself and will not share responsibility with any other parties.
