Remote sellers providing digital goods or electronically supplied services (digital products) to Mexican customers must register for VAT purposes within 30 days of the first sale to a customer located in Mexico. There are no registration thresholds or simplified registration procedures. Non-residents must appoint a legal representative and establish a tax domicile in Mexico.
