Update of the electronic invoice format (Facturae) to version 3.2.2
The electronic invoice format Facturae will undergo a change of XML schema resulting in the new version 3.2.2, as published in the Resolution of August 24, 2017 of the Secretary of State for the Information Society and the Agenda Digital and the State Secretaries of Finance and Budgets and Expenses. This version is not mandatory for all Facturae users, only those providers that need to send the information that it adds must implement it.
This resolution will have effect on the relations between the Administration and its suppliers six months after its publication in the Official State Newsletter. Therefore, it enters into force next February.
This update requires the modification of the XML schema used for electronic invoicing with Public Administrations in Spain. In version 3.2.2. of Facturae, new data are included that must be implemented by the technological suppliers that require it, so the invoice reception platforms will have to adapt to admit this format.
These developments in version 3.2.2 of Facturae are:
- Inclusion of specific labels for:
- collect payments in kind,
- general description of the invoice,
- date of issue of rectified invoices.
- It is allowed to enter at the invoice level the reference of the contract file when the invoice refers to a single contract or order.
- A new unit, the Kilowatt per hour (KWh), is added to the table of unit types.
- The HTML format is added to the accepted formats for documents attached to the invoice.
- New fields are introduced to identify the electronic reference of cession documents of the credits derived from the invoice, both of the powers of attorney of the representation and of the cession agreement itself, that will not have to be attached to the invoice if the Administration or another addressee of the invoice can consult them electronically for, in its case, append them to the expense file.
