Tax Compliance in Mexico: Guide for Oracle NetSuite Users

So keep reading we have, for sure, the answer you’re looking for! 

Let us explain…  

You might be wondering how your company will fulfill all these requirements that you didn’t even know existed?!

WHT or Withholding taxes are important to consider when you are expanding your NetSuite use into Latin America. 

As all transactions that involve them are present in legal reports, required by the local government, that cannot be filled without specific tax information such as ‘DIOT’ or better known as legal ledgers.

A legal ledger is a book of accounts in which the government enters the names of all the companies with whom they have operations; there being two parallel columns in each account, one for the entries to the debit account of the person charged, the other, for credits. In Mexico, it is mandatory to declare financial information into this book in the correct way.

In Mexico and in most Latin American countries Electronic Invoicing is a mandatory document. For E-invoicing, first, we need to set specific values or requirements on the customer record. The document must be fulfilled the needs to be uploaded to its portal and approved before its use.
