Costa Rica: Digital Receipts for Lawyers

Starting from March 1, law firms, notaries and legal advisors, as well as other professionals and legal services must be ready to use the new electronic receipt system.

Monday, February 26, 2018

"... Representatives from the Costa Rican Association of Public Accountants, suppliers and the business association GS-1 point out that the system's initial difficulties have been overcome. However they still advise that both the taxpayers in the legal sector and those who need to start using the electronic invoice in April and May, should prepare themselves in order to avoid inconveniences due to the saturation that occurs at the moment of registering in the Virtual Tax Administration system (ATV)." reports that "...In April the electronic invoice will begin to be obligatory for the sectors of engineering, architecture and informatics. In May it will be mandatory for professionals and services of industrial maintenance, communication, geologists, biologists, teachers, advertising and journalism."
