Honduras: Problems with Electronic Invoicing

Business people are complaining that the recurrent failures in the new online system known as the Revenue Management Service is causing losses because of delays in billing.

Wednesday, June 22, 2016

The new system requires all registered entities to use the documentation demanded by the Revenue Management Service (SAR by its initials in Spanish), for which printing houses certified in fiscal registry have to connect to the system for authorization from the SAR, and it is precisely this part of the process that is failing. 

Jose Luis Padilla, an accountant at Impresos Rápidos Ariel, told Laprensa.hn that "... for over three weeks the system has been failing. He explained that filling in the form DEI-924 (the application for printing authorization) should result in printing authorization from the CAI, but for the last three weeks they have not recieved this. Padilla said that they have had a lot of orders from businesses, traders and people who provide independent services that they have not been able to meet because of this situation. "

"..Israel Hernandez, owner of a printing company, acknowledges that the problem with the system has to be addressed at the offices of Tegucigalpa, where the institution is centralized; but complained about poor customer service received by taxpayers in the offices of the SAR in San Pedro Sula. "
