What is the Ordinance no. 363/2010?
This ordinance was published in Diário da República, 1st series, no.120 from June 23, 2010, and established the regulation of the previous certification of invoicing IT applications.
This measure from DGCI (Direcção-Geral dos Impostos – Tax Administration) was created because there was a need to regulate invoicing applications, in order for them to comply with requirements that ensure that all registered information is inviolable, avoiding data adulteration in a context where more and more people use electronic data processing systems, namely for goods and services’ invoicing.
Who needs certification?
All computer programs used by a taxable person need certification from DGCI to issue invoices or similar documents, as established on articles no. 36 e 40 of CIVA (Código do Imposto Sobre o Valor Acrescentado).
The taxable person must ensure that their software complies with the new legal regulations.
Who doesn’t need the certification?
The following taxable persons using invoicing applications are excluded from certification:
If using software that was developed in-house or by a company from the same economic group, having property of copyrights;
If having transactions exclusively with clients that work in production, sales or services, including those who are professional;
If having had a turnover inferior to € 150 000 (mandatory from January 1, 2011);
