While they are mandatory for some industries, others are still receiving future timelines from the Argentinean tax authority Administración Federal de Ingresos Públicos (AFIP). Over 300,000 companies will be transitioning during 2014 to electronic invoicing. Today organizations need to consider solutions for Type E export invoices, as well as the regulations for domestic (Type A and Type B) invoices.
