|Update:||Compliance Alert - E-signature requirement for non-EDI invoices postponed|
On 26 May 2022, the Portuguese tax administration announced the postponement of qualified electronic signatures (QES) requirements for all non-EDI (e.g., PDF) invoices.
Previously, all non-EDI invoices were supposed to be issued with a QES, but it has been continuously postponed several times due to the Covid impact.
Furthermore, the new Dispatch 49/2022-XXIII postpones this requirement once again until 31 December 2022.
1 January 2023 is, therefore, the new timeline for all non-EDI invoices to have QES for B2B and B2C transactions.
