NF-e 4.0 – Are you ready for the new version of the electronic invoice?

On July 2, 2018, the 3.10 version of the NF-e will be deactivated. The changes in the layout of electronic invoices aim to standardize this process, increasing the tax security and control on the goods circulation. They also intend to reduce the maintenance in the systems of NF-e emission for the companies and for the SEFAZ.


See below what changes and which updates are required in GRC-NF-e and ERP:

The NF-e layout change requirements are grouped over a period and end up composing a national annual version, or every two years. The objective is to avoid frequent changes in the NF-e layout, to reduce the need for maintenance in NF-e emission systems for companies and SEFAZ.

The exception to this rule is motivated by the adaptations necessary in the change of legislation, which normally have a smaller size, but which must also comply with a schedule that can be observed by the companies and by the authorizing SEFAZ. The last layout revision was made in 2014. Currently the NF-e layout is in the “3.10” version.


Deadline for implementation

The deadlines for implementing the changes are:

  • Homologation Environment (business test environment): 01/15/2018.
  • Production Environment: 01/22/2018.
  • Deactivation of the previous version: 02/07/18
