Costa Rica e-invoice database

Wed 21st Sep 2016

Costa Rica is formalising plans to create a centralised, compulsory database of all invoices, credit notes and supporting documentation created by taxable persons. The new e-invoice database will mirror systems in China and Brazil, and should help reduce fraud.

The tax office has now provided details of the format requirements for providing invoice details.

The new database will be activated from 1 January 2017.
