Electronic Payment Receipt (CPE)

Electronic tax documents like invoices, sales tickets, or credit notes are called electronic payment receipts in Peru.  A CPE is any document that certifies the delivery of goods or services regulated by the SUNAT.

    Types of CPEs

    • Invoice.
    • Sales Ticket (Individual or daily summary).
    • Credit Notes.
    • Debit Notes.
    • Withholding voucher (CRE).
    • Collection voucher (CPE).
    • Waybill.
    • Public service bill.
    • Electronic purchase settlements.

    CPE Format

    CPEs must be generated in the standard UBL V2.1 format based on XML and developed by the technical committee by OASIS.

    CPE Archiving

    CPEs must be archived by issuers and recipients. Issuers must make CPEs available for download or printing for at least one year and guarantee their confidentiality. Electronic issuers must also store, archive, and preserve all CPEs as well as daily reports and rejection notifications through magnetic or optical methods. 

    Electronic Issuance System (SEE)

    The electronic issuance system is regulated by SUNAT Resolución nº300/2014. To issue CPEs taxpayers must use an electronic service provider (PSE) which oversees the construction and signature of the documents. Issued CPEs must be pre-validated by an OSE-SEE. The OSE-SEE verifies the validity of the CDR by issuing a reception acknowledgment (CDR).  The OSE-SEE sends the CDR to the invoice issuer and the SUNAT which attaches the CPE’s XML.

    Requirements to be an Electronic Invoice Issuer in Peru

    • To have an RUC number. 
    • To be registered as an electronic issuer by the SEE. 
    • To have a digital certificate. 
    • To have a PSE and an OSE-SEE.
