Argentina eFactura e-invoicing

Argentina’s tax authority, AFIP – Federal Administration of Public Taxes, completed the mandatory imposition of eFactura in July 2019. E-invoices had first been introduced in 2003 on a voluntary basis. QR codes on e-invoices were imposed in the first half of 2021.

All taxpayers must now follow the following steps to issue a valid tax invoice:

  • Register with AFIP for a CAE (Electronic Authorization Code) certificate to issue invoices. Invoices may only be produced via this login code. Note: digital signatures on invoices are not required.
  • Invoices can be created either within AFIP’s portal, or via adapted accounting or invoice software.
  • Invoices are transmitted to AFIP in XML-format. They are then provided with a CAE unique number with an expiry date. This code should be added to any delivery notes for goods, too.
  • Invoices, once created with AFIP, may then be printed with a bar code (QR Code from March 2021) for the customer. The invoice must include the CAE for the customer to validate.
