The importance of reconciliation of Digital Tax Receipts and submitted information for taxpayers in Mexico

The reconciliation of Digital Tax Receipts by Internet, [in Spanish: los Comprobantes Fiscales Digitales], (CFDIs), and the submitted information emerges as a process of vital importance for taxpayers in Mexico.  The five points that highlight the significant importance of this fiscal year from the perspective of those who comply with their tax obligations are explained below.


1. Actual date of compliance with tax liabilities:

Reconciliation of the Digital Tax Receipts by Internet and the submitted information is prominent as as an essential means of guaranteeing full compliance with tax liabilities. Verifying the accuracy of the Digital Tax Receipts accurately and completely reflects the operations that are carried out, and allows taxpayers to ensure that their tax returns are adjusted to the established regulations by the Tax Administration Service, [in Spanish: el Servicio de Administración Tributaria], (SAT). This process not only allows them to avoid penalties, but also supports proper fiscal management.

A prime example of the importance of this reconciliation is the tax for obtaining a Positive Tax Compliance, [in Spanish: una Opinión Positiva de Cumplimiento], from the tax authorities, in accordance with Article 32D of the Federal Tax Code, [in Spanish: el Código Fiscal de la Federación], (CFF). This Article establishes that in order to obtain a positive judgment, the information submitted by taxpayers in their estimated tax payments, income, and withholdings must be consistent with the Digital Tax Receipts, proceedings, documents, or databases held by the tax authorities.  

Moreover, for situations in which the taxpayer attempts to carry out a disenrollment procedure of his/her Taxpayer ID Number, [in Spanish: Registro Federal de Contribuyentes], (RFC), it is imperative that there are no differential omissions or inconsistencies. This covers various areas such as the early filing of the annual tax return, estimated tax payments, withholdings, and income and expenditures. The information that matches that of the Digital Tax Receipts, the documents, proceedings, or databases that are held by the tax authorities is an essential requirement for guaranteeing the cancellation process without any setbacks. 

To sum up, the reconciliation of the Digital Tax Receipts, (CFDIs), and the submitted information, not only protects taxpayers from tax penalties, but is also an essential component in obtaining a positive tax compliance from the tax authorities, and is a key requirement in important processes such as the cancellation of the Taxpayer ID Number.


2. Optimization of Internal Processes:

Reconciliation streamlines the identification of possible discrepancies between the Digital Tax Receipts and the internal information of the company. This fiscal year not only provides for error detection, but also allows for the streamlining of internal processes, thereby improving efficiency in accounting and financial management. An early correction of deviations minimizes the risk of inconsistencies in the registers and optimizes business decision-making.  


3. Reducing Risks and Penalties:

Reconciliation for taxpayers plays a crucial role as a preventive mechanism which lessens risks and prevents potential penalties. Continuous verification of coherent information of the Digital Tax Receipts by Internet, and the submitted information, allows for a proactive correction of any irregularity before it becomes the reason for an audit or oversight actions. This focus, similarly, entails a reduction in financial and legal risk that is associated with non-compliant behavior. 

By way of illustration, being prepared to respond to the tax authorities in a timely manner, stemming from any possible inconsistencies with the information shown on the tax returns, and the content in the electronic invoices identified by the aforementioned authority, constitutes a concrete example of the benefits of reconciliation. The ability to address in a timely manner these presumed inconsistencies avoids the suspension or cancellation of the digital stamps.  The imposition of these restrictions, of these things occuring, would impede the continuity of issuing invoices, thereby emphasizing the strategic impact of reconciliation to safeguard the effectiveness and consistency of business undertakings. 


4. Improving relationships between Suppliers and Clients:

Reconciliation becomes a key element for strengthening relationships between taxpayers, suppliers, and clients. Transparency in transactions and coherent information in the Digital Tax Receipts, (CFDI), along with the submitted information, builds mutual trust. To this end, the timely and accurate sending of the payment receipt complements not only contributes towards transparency, but assists the clients in obtaining the tax credit that corresponds to their purchases.

Those companies that show a clear commitment to the legality and trustworthiness of their operations establish solid commercial ties. This demonstration of responsibility can translate into stronger and long-lasting commercial relations. Ultimately, reconciliation not only has a technical component in terms of tax compliance, but is also a strategic catalyst for promoting commercial relations based on trust and transparency. 


5. Streamlining Fiscal Planning:

For taxpayers, reconciliation of the Digital Tax Receipts and the submitted information becomes a key element in fiscal planning. The availability of accurate and reliable information streamlines strategic decision-making, regarding the fiscal management of the company. In addition, it allows you to foresee more effectively any possible adjustments or modifications based on the regulations in force. 

In essence, reconciliation of the Digital Tax Receipts and the submitted information is based not only on a regulatory requirement, but also on an essential practice for taxpayers in Mexico. Your contribution to complying with your tax obligations optimizes internal processes, reduces risks, strengthens commercial relations, and streamlines fiscal planning. This process positions itself as a key ally for success in order to make business operations more sustainable in the current tax context.
