Generally, the amounts of payments or deductions are positive numbers, but the SAT has established that negative numbers can also be used, where appropriate.



10.  What are the main uses and benefits of an e-payslip?


It is a deductible receipt.

Yes. Remember that PACs offer comprehensive E-Invoicing and Business Digitalization solutions.
