Panama Initiates eInvoicing Pilot

January 23, 2018

Panama has issued a new resolution announcing the implementation of a pilot program that will mandate the use of electronic invoices for VAT reporting in Panama.

The General Directorate of Revenues (DGI) has indicated that they will be implementing the new invoicing system during the first semester of 2018, with 30 companies participating in a pilot program, to test the validity of the mandate. According to Resolution 201-0235, gazetted on January 11, 2018, the electronic invoices issued by the taxpayers in the pilot program will be considered in the same manner that is currently utilized by the DGI for paper invoices. At this stage, the electronic invoices will only be required and accepted by the DGI from those taxpayers authorized to participate in the pilot program. The DGI has also indicated that further resolutions will be released, which will specify the other requirements established under this new eInvoice mandate.
