1. What are the tax machines all about?
The tax machines project from the Mozambican Tax Authority is a system that electronically communicates invoices, cash sales and equivalent documents issued by the companies to the TA.
It is intended that every fiscal document issued is electronically submitted to the TA.

Pilot tests are being undertaken in the region of Maputo until the end of March 2021. Some companies have been invited to participate in the experience during this phase. This pilot phase will be extended to the other provinces as of the second quarter of 2021.

The invoicing software producers send their programs to the TA, which will evaluate if they comply with the requirements of the tax machines.
As soon as the Decree 92/2014 enters into force, companies in Mozambique will only be able to use the invoicing systems authorized by the TA.
4. How to know if your software is prepared?
Each system will have a specific authorization for the software and the company using the software to issue invoices.
The software will show that the tax machine is initialized, as shown below:
