The deadline for issuing the Complemento Carta Porte correctly, avoiding fines or penalties, is September 31st. Keep reading to find out what you need to know about filling it in.

While the regulations regarding the Complemento Carta Porte came into effect last January 1st, taxpayers still have until March 31st to issue it in the correct way, without being fined or penalized.   

The purpose of this mandatory document is to counteract informality and contraband through Mexico.

What information requires the Complemento Carta Porte?

The areas in charge of systems, operations, and accounting in freight companies must get involved in the implementation of this document. To fill it in without difficulty, we recommend using Excel, as in the model we propose later on. Doing it in this way will allow billing programs to identify and import the data easily.    

Remember that it must include all the information regarding the goods or merchandise, its place of origin, intermediate points and destinations, as well as means of transportation. The owner of goods or merchandise that will be transported through federal highways must be the one who provides the information with the codes available in the catalog of the Servicio de Administración Tributaria (SAT).
