This article describes a country-specific update for Spanish electronic invoices FacturaE in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009 SP1, Dynamics AX 2012, Dynamics AX 2012 R2, and Dynamics AX 2012 R3.

Effective 15th of January 2015, invoices sent to or received from Spanish Government Agencies and State owned companies must be submitted only in electronic format.

The Spanish Government has defined a single point of submission of any electronic invoice sent to any Spanish Government Agencies or State owned companies.

This single point is known as FACe and allows the submission of electronic invoices by two methods:

  • Uploading the electronic invoice to a website.

  • Using web service integration.

In both cases, the electronic invoice must be generated using a standard format defined by the AEAT (Spanish Tax Administration) known as FacturaE.
