Below are the most common rejection errors that can be of two types:

  1. Rejection errors for commercial reasons are those defined by the body receiving the invoice; these error codes and/or literals are foreign to the e.FACT, for this reason, these types of errors are not described in this FAQ. It is necessary to contact the receiving organization in case of doubt.
  2. Rejection errors for technical reasons are those generated automatically by the tool when performing certain internal validations.

Any errors involving invoice correction must be corrected by re-generating the XML and re-signing it. If a change is made to the content of an XML that was signed, the invoice signature will become invalid.

Below we describe the most common technical rejection errors:

FORMAT ERROR

Code literal That means? How to fix it?
The invoice is not in the correct format This error appears when an invoice is uploaded to the delivery mailbox and it does not respect the invoice format.

Validate the invoice , check if the format is correct and correct possible errors.

The most common format error reasons are as follows:

– In the PersonTypeCode field you are putting a "J" for a legal person and therefore the CIF of a legal person must be put, if you put "F" for physical you must put the NIF of a natural person.

– The header does not contain the expected format. Every invoice must start with:
<?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”UTF-8″?>

– The format of one of the identity documents (issuer TIN/CIF, recipient CIF, third party CIF...) is incorrect. It cannot contain any spaces or dashes.

HF01 Bad filename format The file format does not follow the guideline given in the integration guide The format indicated in the integration guide should be reviewed and amended.
HF08 Scheme validation error The submitted invoice schema has not passed syntactic validation and/or the published extensions have not passed validation . The invoice must be generated in invoice format 3.2 and 3.2.1 .

REGISTRATION ERROR

Code literal That means? How to fix it?
HRE1 Error registering document The invoice could not be posted correctly, because there is an item that is not reported correctly.

Validate the XML of the invoice, if you pass the validation try to send it again. If the rejection persists, send us the xml of the invoice:

Support form

EV02 Duplicate invoice The invoice has already been sent. Verify that the invoice has not been sent previously. You can check the status of the invoice in the Delivery Mailbox
DF01 We receiver has rejected t the invoice manually Error detected by the entity receiving the invoice You must contact the recipient of the invoice to obtain more details of the commercial rejection of the invoice.
HS01 Broadcast platform code unknown For example, if the invoice is delivered from an issuing platform that does not adhere to the e.FACT service See dherides platforms in the e.FACT service : Create and send invoices
HR01 Unknown receiving platform code Unknown invoice receiving platform code. That is, it has been sent to a platform code that does not exist in the HUB. The invoice recipient platform code is unknown. The recipient code must be reviewed or confirmed with the recipient.
HS02 Broadcast platform disabled The broadcasting platform is not properly configured.

You need to check the configuration of the sending platform and if you think the configuration is correct, please send us the error, indicating the platform from which it is sent and attaching the invoice xml and the error xml :

Support form

EG01
Generic error in the invoice receipt process There was an error uploading your invoice. Reload your bill after a few minutes. If it persists, please contact us via the Support Form

SIGNATURE ERROR

Code literal That means? How to fix it?
HF04 The file does not contain an electronic signature An attempt was made to send unsigned XML to the platform

Sign is required the XML to respect the invoice format

HV01 Error verifying signature/certificate The invoice has not passed the issuer's digital certificate validation (expired or unrecognized certificate) or the electronic signature of the invoice could not be validated (incorrect format).

Check that the SigninTime field in the XML contains the invoice signing time without any numbers or extraneous characters.

If you see, for example, a +2 or a Z, you must redo the signature of the invoice and send it again.

If there is nothing to alter this field, you need to review the certificate used to sign the invoice through Signasuite.


HV02 Signature/certificate validation could not be performed The number of retries set to validate the signature and certificate of an invoice has been exceeded, and therefore the invoice will be rejected
The invoice must be sent again . If it persists, please contact us via the Support Form

CONTENT ERROR

Code literal That means? How to fix it?
HR11 Recipient Social Reason not indicated or reported It is missing to indicate the social reason in the XML.

This point must be corrected and the invoice sent again.

HD01 Error sending the message to the destination platform Attempting to send an attachment for which we do not have a previous invoice associated with it.
The invoice for the associated attachment must be sent in advance.
HS09 NIF issuer not indicated in document The invoice does not contain the NIF of the issuer
Check that the XMl of the invoice contains this data (NIF of the issuer)
HR09 Receiver NIF not indicated in document The invoice does not contain the NIF of the receiver Check that the XMl of the invoice contains this data (NIF of the receiver)
HR10 The recipient NIF indicated on the invoice does not match the destination entity The invoice does not correctly report the recipient's TIN It is necessary to review the NIF indicated in the XML of the invoice
HR04 Received file content not supported by target platform Delivery of an invoice with an unaccepted version of the invoice format. For example, invoice generated with version 3.oo 3.1.

The invoice must be generated in invoice format 3.2 and 3.2.1 .

HF03 Received file content not supported by the Hub The content of the file is not correct mainly because it is not a invoice format The invoice must be generated in invoice format 3.2 and 3.2.1 .
HF07 Only Invoices with a single invoice are accepted The file . XML contains more than one invoice and only invoice files with a single invoice are supported The XML needs to be regenerated in a single invoice.

ERROR WITH ADDRESSING CODE

Code literal That means? How to fix it?
HS05 Bad sender address code (invalid check digit) The Issuing Platform has incorrectly reported the check digit (last number) of the Issuer's Address Code (Issuer ID)
The format indicated in the integration guide should be reviewed and amended.
HR05 Bad receiver addressing code (invalid check digit) The check digit (last number) of the receiver addressing code (receiver ID) is not correct, as per the format given in the integration guide
The format indicated in the integration guide should be reviewed and amended.
HR08 Receiver addressing code is not an AAPP The recipient's address code (recipient identifier) does not correspond to a public body
The format indicated in the integration guide should be reviewed and amended.
HR06 Receiver addressing code does not exist Receiver addressing code (receiver ID) does not exist (see integration guide ).

See the integration guide and if you think it's correct, send us the error, attaching the invoice xml and the error xml :

Contact form

HS06 There is no ref. previously indicated in the attachment The attachment is rejected because a registered invoice with the same reference as the attachment is not located
See the "Management of attached documents" section of the integration guide

RCF Error Rejection Codes HF09

Below are defined the new rejection codes added as a result of the new validations incorporated by the necessary adaptations of the e.FACT to comply with the requirements required of the PGEs as established by Order HAP/1650/2015, of July 31, which amends Order HAP/492/2014, of March 27, which regulates the functional and technical requirements of the accounting register of invoices of entities within the scope of Law 25/2013 , of December 27, promoting electronic invoicing and creating the accounting register of invoices in the public sector, and Order HAP/1074/2014, of June 24, which regulates the technical and functional conditions which must meet the general entry point for electronic invoices : https://www.boe.es/diario_boe/txt.php?id=BOE-A-2015-8844

How are the RCF rejects returned to the PGE?
When an invoice is rejected for not complying with the validation rules, all these errors have been grouped into the code = HF09 and the specific code of the error and its description are included in the description. All detected errors are returned in the following format:

  • “Error code: Description | error code: Description”

For example in an invoice with detected validation errors RCF05002 and RCF05004 would be returned as a rejection comment:

  • RCF05002: Issuer: The NIF does not conform to the rules and criteria of its formation. Rule number 5b of Annex II of Order HAP / 1650/2015 is breached | RCF05004: Issuer: First name and last name are required. Rule number 5d of Annex II of Order HAP / 1650/2015 is breached |
