E-billing in Brazil started in 2012 with an initiative of the federal and state tax authorities. Its aim is to end the need of an authorized printer for fiscal receipts and replacing it by an e-invoice, which can be printed in any device or sent by e-mail. The initiative promotes savings costs, simplification of redundant tax presentations and enhanced security.

25 of 27 states have opted out for the e-invoicing to date. Amazonas and Rio Grande do Sul already signed decrees which make it mandatory to adopt e-billing for certain firms, a requirement that will extend to all billers by 2015.
