Currently, the focus of the discussions on Comprobantes Fiscales Digitales por Internet (CFDI) is centered on the entry into force of the Complemento Carta Porte. This is due to the type, quantity and availability of the information required for the correct issuance of the CFDI. The challenges that the implementation represents for the issuing taxpayer lies in the fact that many of these data are not available in the current systems.

What you should know about the Complemento Carta Porte

  • Its use is mandatory for taxpayers who transport goods and merchandise within Mexican territory.

  • It is incorporated into the transfer type CFDI to prove the possession of the goods. Its function is to provide information on the origin and destination of the goods that are moved through the different means of transportation.

Main Challenge

One of the main challenges for the carrier will be to gather additional information from their customer in order to document the journey. This means that they will no longer be able to start the journey without having everything documented. The concept of “start the trip and then I will give you the data to document” is over. 

Although the initiative seeks to strengthen tax receipts, it also makes the operation and the exchange of documentation more complex. It integrates control mechanisms and precise information to have full traceability in the transfer of goods. However, this new system ends up, in some cases, making its application impossible. 

Due to this, different chambers and associations requested changes and asked for a six-month extension. The argument is that the complement is not adjusted to the operational and security reality of the country.

Changes to the norm are expected during the course of the month and confirmation of the three-month extension. If the postponement is confirmed, its use would be mandatory as of January 1, 2022. However, companies are still racing against the clock and should not let their guard down.
