Where could I find out what requirements Mexico has regarding invoices?


The National Law Center for Inter-American Free Trade lists the requirements for Mexican invoices in a document outlining changes to NAFTA in 2001. According to the article, the Mexican Tax Code requires invoices to include the following information:

  • The Issuer's name, legal address, and Federal Taxpayer Registry Number (Mexican version of a TIN, also called an RFC)
  • Sequential numbering of the invoice
  • Date and location of issuance
  • The RFC of the buyer, or of the person to whom the invoice is being issued
  • The quantity or type of merchandise sold; in the case of services, a description of services provided
  • The sales price per unit and total value of the sale written in words and numbers (taxes incurred should be specified separately)
  • A cross-reference to the appropriate Mexican customs documents, as well as the port of entry where the merchandise was imported. This only applies for imports.
