As of 2015, legal entities must issue accounting documents in electronic form. This has forced Mexican firms to get their management systems ready to meet the SAT requirements. Among other things, this means including the UUID Unique Tax Receipt Folio number in the electronic entries for all the different movements that generate this document.

The requirement poses some problems for businesses, which are often unaware of what this identifier is. It is a unique code, created by the PAC, which serves to identify a CFDI. The code is obtained by combining information contained in the receipt with data from the PAC that issued the electronic stamp. The UUID consists of a string made up of 32 hexadecimal digits grouped in sets of several characters separated by hyphens. So, it is a parameter integrated in the data structure that makes up the XML electronic file of the receipt.
