Characteristics of the electronic invoice in the Dominican Republic

The electronic invoice in the Dominican Republic is called Electronic Tax Receipt (e-CF) and is regulated by the General Directorate of Internal Taxes (DGII). Currently, the electronic invoice is in a voluntary stage for all taxpayers who carry out transactions involving the transfer of goods, delivery in use or provision of services for consideration or free of charge.

The DGII (General Directorate of Internal Revenue) has established a mandatory implementation schedule for all taxpayers. To facilitate the incorporation of Large Taxpayers, they have been segmented into 3 groups with different implementation dates.

The taxpayer must request to become an Electronic Issuer or have been expressly required by DGII to integrate into the model and have the electronic signature certificate granted by an entity accredited by INDOTEL.

Once approved, it will be subject to the electronic issuer certification process. In addition, the designation of fiscal receipt numbers (e-NCF) that only the authority will have the power to issue must be requested.



The electronic fiscal receipt (e-CF) is a data structure in XML format. This must be signed and transmitted electronically to the General Directorate of Internal Taxes as the regulatory entity for approval and assignment of a TrackID.
