Last week a controversy broke out after the National Tax and Customs Directorate, Dian, announced the closure, for three days, of the renowned Doña Segunda picket yard, which is located in the October 12 market square in Bogotá. The entity explained that the measure was taken due to the non-issuance of the electronic invoice to its clients, which is why the question of who should invoice electronically.

First, it should be mentioned that Dian has been implementing electronic invoices progressively, starting with large companies until reaching the smallest businesses, so starting this year the measure became mandatory for everyone.

“In accordance with Article 7 of Resolution 000165 of 2023, everyone responsible for invoicing must do so electronically. They are obliged to issue a sales invoice or equivalent document for each and every one of the operations they carry out,” says Dian in its regulations.

Within the natural or legal persons that Those who have gross income of 3,500 Tax Value Units, UVT, are required to invoice electronically. Taking into account this year’s UVT ($47,065), they would be those that sell more than $167.7 million a year.

This means that if you are the owner of a bakery, a restaurant, a neighborhood store, a hairdresser or a picketer, as is the case of Doña Segunda, and sells more than $13.7 million monthly, must deliver the electronic invoice to its customers for any purchase they make.

According to the regulations, those who are obliged to issue these invoices are those responsible for the Sales Tax, VAT, those responsible for the National Consumption Tax, INC, the taxpayers registered in the unified tax under the Simple Taxation Regime (Simple), merchants, importers, typographers and lithographers and agricultural or livestock merchants, regardless of their status as taxpayers or non-taxpayers of the taxes administered by the Dian.
