e-Invoicing and Brazil: What is the "Manifestação do Destinatário"?
The so-called NF-e «events» are processes that allow electronic documentation of certain information updating processes on an already issued NF-e.

These events are integrated in Edicom’s tax invoice reception solutions and can be issued automatically on the basis of customized validation rules adapted to the needs of each receiver.
