As I recently moved to México I do not yet have any fiscal number in Mexico. Furthermore a colleague told me that there is no need for it as in Mexico income from abroad does not need to be declared.
The Spanish agency means that it cannot accept the invoice this way.
Has anyone experience in this matter?
Nice greetings

Hi, Karlo, and welcome to Mexico!

Indeed, there is no need to declare any income earned through clients abroad, but if your client abroad requests your Mexican RFC, I'm afraid you'll have to get it at Hacienda. Your Mexican clients will need you to issue recibos de honorarios anyway, so that's not really an option, but a must. In any case, I guess you can send the Spanish client a simple invoice including your RFC (not an official Mexican recibo de honorarios), so still you wouldn't have to declare that.

At the moment I haven´t got the intention to have Mexican clients Apr 24, 2004

So I should not need a tax number. (Although you never know). The problem is that I will wait with official paper work until after my marriage in May. So it seems that I will have to wait a bit until I can invoice this agency.

Thanks for the warm welcome.
Greetings Karlo

Una sugerencia. Apr 24, 2004

Antes que nada, bienvenido a México, Karlo. Ojalá haya suerte por acá.
Creo que estás condenado, como todos nosotros, a registrarte ante Hacienda, quieras o no tener clientes mexicanos.
Ahora bien, te vas a casar en mayo, para, supongo, obtener estancia oficial, el FM3 como dependiente económico, o algo así.
Todo eso te va a tomar muuucho tiempo... si todavía no conoces bien México, ya lo verás.
¿Solución? No muy "regular", pero que no constituye delito alguno: pídele a alguien que te "preste" un recibo de honorarios o una factura, y pregúntale a tu cliente si lo aceptaría.
Suerte, y bienvenido una vez más.
Como todos, este país tiene muchos defectos y muchas calidades. A ti te tocará sacarle lo mejor, como lo hemos hecho muchos inmigrantes como tú y como yo.


Juan Jacob.

Si todavía cuentas con una dirección fuera de México, también podrías preguntarle al cliente si acepta una factura con dicha dirección, así evitarías tener que esperar por el trámite del RFC.
