COMPLIANCE UPDATE! Mexico announced CFDI 4.0 from 2022

Since 2017, CFDI 3.3 (Comprobante Fiscal Digital por Internet) has been in force in Mexico. However, the Mexican tax authorities SAT does not stand still and has now introduced the fourth version CFDI 4.0, as the newest version of e-invoicing in Mexico.


From a timeline perspective, the Mexican tax authorities grant the Mexican companies a grace period (transition period) of four months which means that businesses operating in Mexico should be compliant with CFDI 4.0 as of 1 July 2022. However, as of 1 January, the new version is accepted by SAT, but no penalties will be given if CDFI 3.3 is still issued between January and July 2022

What is new in CFDI 4.0?

The changes which will be introduced won’t be as drastic as those which were introduced by CFDI 3.3. For instance, at that time, Complemento de Pago was introduced, which was a major change for companies.

For CFDI 4.0 there will be changes in four areas:

  • E-invoicing CFDI 4.0
    New version including new catalogues developed by SAT
  • Withholding tax
    Includes new field changes
  • Complemento de Pago
    A new version of the payment complement will be introduced
  • Cancellation request
    The cancellation reason field will become mandatory to fill in

At the moment, SAP is developing its SAP Document Compliance solution for Mexico to ensure compliance with the update to CFDI 4.0. As soon as the solution is published this blog post will be updated, and I will explain how the solution will cover the new requirements.
