The Association of Banks of Mexico (ABM) reported that the project of instant invoicing of card payments was suspended for the time being until it met with the Tax Administration Service (SAT).
At a press conference, ABM President Luis Niño de Rivera noted that so far they have had no contact with SAT chief Raquel Buenrostro.
As far as the project was suspended, he said, the institutions are not working on this initiative, after the owner of the collecting agency said that he would discuss the issue of instant an invoice.
«We haven’t had contact with the new SAT holder yet, but we do have an interest in hearing their views, but for banking that project is totally suspended, we’re not working,» he added.
In November last year, the SAT and ABM launched the instant billing initiative through Point of Sale (POS) terminals to people who paid with cards.
The then owner of Tax Administration Service, Margarita Ríos Farjat, said that the measure is one of the two axes with which this agency works to make life easier for taxpayers, and felt that it is necessary to work closely with banking.
However, last January, the new head of the SAT, Raquel Buenrostro, commented at her Senate appearance that the proposal was under review and analysis by the agency of the Ministry of Finance.
«It’s not an Executive proposal, it’s an external proposal that was presented as an option and the SAT is assessing whether or not it applies,» he said.
