In El Salvador the plan is to implement a pilot plan to test the electronic billing system over the next two months, starting with six companies.

Monday, June 25, 2018

The global project that will simplify 63 processes currently carried out by large taxpayers is expected to be consolidated in the next two or three years, since it is still in the stage of purchasing computer equipment.

Regarding the experience that other countries have had in this matter, Finance Minister Nelson Fuentes explained to that " ... It has been demonstrated, in Mexico, Uruguay, Colombia, that (the system) has the capacity to collect and reduce levels of evasion through the digitalization of processes, " he said. "We are talking about how to simplify 63 processes that big taxpayers have to do now when they have all their papers in order. What we are looking for is for big business people to not have to move from their desks."

Luis Caballero, general manager of Softland Central America, affirms that " ... the electronic invoice is a tool with many advantages when it comes to making state institutions more efficient ..." companies must start from today to get all of their billing processes in order because, regardless of the system used for electronic invoices, the systematization of data is a prerequisite'."
