This is a summary of changes and new functionality introduced in each version.

Please note that this file may contain changes for yet-unreleased versions. Check the latest tags or PyPI for the latest stable release.

Any breaking changes which require intervention will be mentioned here.


  • BREAKING: Drop support for Django 3.2, 4.0 and 4.1.

  • Add support for Django 5.0.

  • Mark requests 2.32.0, 2.32.1, and 2.32.2 as incompatible. An upstream bug makes these unusable with django-afip.

  • Add support for requests >= 2.32.3.

  • Improve documentation on security considerations.


  • BREAKING: Change model field ReceiptEntry.quantity from PositiveSmallIntegerField to DecimalField to allow decimal quantities.

  • BREAKING: Drop support for Python 3.7.

  • BREAKING: ReceiptPDFView.get_context_for_pk() has been deprecated and will be removed in the next major release. The static method PdfBuilder.get_context() should be used instead.

  • BREAKING: The signal that auto-generated receipt pdfs for validated ReceiptPDFs has been removed. Applications now need to explicitly call ReceiptPDF.save_pdf() to generate the PDF files.

  • BREAKING: Variables for HTML templates have changed to support pagination. Check the included template for reference. Existing templates will not work without being updated.

  • Introduce a new PdfBuilder type which allows customising PDF generation.

  • The ReceiptPDF.save_pdf() method now optionally takes an instance of the above PdfBuilder.

  • Type hints have been added everywhere that is feasible.

  • Add a new helper helper method Receipt.approximate_date(). It is intended to be used to automatically approximate dates on systems which perform automatic or unattended receipt validation.


  • Fix crash sending “Nota de Crédito electrónica MiPyMEs (FCE) A”.

  • Add py.typed to explicitly indicate we supply type annotations.

  • Fix QR codes for PDF receipts. The original implementation happened before AFIP’s website had implemented the page where these QR point, so there was no way of testing them. The encoding was incorrect (some numbers were rendered as strings), but data was not incorrect for receipts of type “CAE”.


  • Fixed compatibility issue with urllib3 >= 2.0.0.


  • Python 3.11 is now supported.

  • Django 4.2 is now supported.

  • Added support for AFIP Optionals, especially for use in FCEA receipts: OptionalType and Optional models were added.

  • Serialization of individual optionals was implemented as serialize_optional.


  • setuptools_scm is no longer a runtime dependency. It was never required at runtime, but mistakenly listed as a dependency.

  • Fix crash when a receipt validation has an observation.

  • Django 4.1 is now supported.


  • Database support has been better documented. Please check that you are using a supported setup, and please reach out if you’d like your combination to be ran on CI.

  • Documentation on how we handle transactions has been added. Developers are advised to read these and that audit existing implementations.

  • As noted above, attempting to validate receipts within a transaction will now raise RuntimeError.

  • The raise_ flag for validate() has been deprecated and will be removed in release 12.0.0.

  • pytz has been replaced with Python 3.9’s new zoneinfo module. For Python < 3.9, backports.zoneinfo is a new dependency.

  • Added a new property as_decimal to VatType. This is usable to obtain the Vat percent as a Decimal which can be used for VAT calculations.

  • The maximum size of AuthTicket.service has been increased to accommodate for the longest known service name.

  • pyyaml version 6 is now supported.


  • Soporte para Python 3.10 y Django 4.0.

  • Django 3.1 ya no es soportado.

  • Soporte para cryptography hasta la versión 36.


  • Django 2.2 y 3.0 ya no son soportados. Ambos tienen problemas de compatibilidad con versiones nuevas de dependencias. Ver

  • Python 3.6 ya no es soportado.

  • Soporte para Zeep ~4.0.0.

  • Soporte para Django 3.2.

  • La [mayoría de la] documentación ahora está traducida.

  • Se implementa revalidate(). Provee un mecanismo de revalidacion de un comprobante para completar datos faltandes referentes a la validacion del mismo.

  • Se agrega get_server_status() para determinar el estado de los servidores del AFIP.

  • The fields from the TaxPayerProfile have moved into the PointOfSales model. A migration will handle copying data from table to the other for you. If you have any references to this model (e.g.: forms for your users, custom admins, etc), make sure you update these to point to the PointOfSales model. This allow customising invoices for different points of sales differently. Noticeably, different points of sales commonly have different address, websites, and/or phone number.


  • Fix mixup when sending validated receipts, introduced in v8.0.3.


  • Some factories were not fully reusable since they depended on data files that were no included in this package. These files are now included, and all factories should now be reusable by downstream apps.

  • Fixed a bug when validating credit notes and other receipts which have a related-receipt.


This version has a critical error in validating receipts with related receipts. It has been yanked and should not be used. If you’ve submitted any receipts with this version, you may need to invalidate them.


  • Fix typo in dependency specifier.


  • Fix improperly pinned Django version that excluded 3.1.x minor releases.


  • Receipts now show validation details in the admin.

  • The __str__ for TaxPayer has changed. If you relied on this for rendering content, please updated those references to TaxPayer.cuit.

  • Python 3.6 to 3.9 are supported.

  • Django 2.2 to 3.1 are supported.

  • The template tag receiptnumber (which was deprecated in 3.0.0) has been removed. Use Receipt.formatted_number instead.

  • Template discovery has been extended. See get_template_names() for the new behaviour. The new behaviour is backwards compatible with pre-8.0.0 and does not require any changes.

  • django_afip.views.ReceiptPDFDownloadView has been dropped. It was never documented, and not really of great use. If you need to expose PDFs prompting the user to download the file, use:

class MyPDFReceiptView(ReceiptPDFView):
    """Indicates to browsers that they should prompt to download the file."""
    prompt_download = True

    def download_name(self):
        # You can customise the filename here.
        # This is the default behaviour:
        return f"{self.receipt.formatted_number}.pdf"
  • QR Codes have been implemented and replace barcodes in receipts. If you use custom receipt templates, you’ll need to update them. The provided template should serve as a reference.

  • The fields from the TaxPayerExtras have moved into the TaxPayer model. A migration will handle copying data from table to the other for you. If you have any references to this model (e.g.: forms for your users, custom admins, etc), make sure you update these to point to the TaxPayer model.

  • Fixtures are now included with all necessary metadata (currencies, receipt types, etc). This should make bootstrapping new projects and environments easier.

  • The function models.populate_all has been removed in favour of loaddata(). The afipmetadata management command now runs the latter.


  • Override the TLS configuration for test servers too (7.1.1 only covered production servers).


  • Override the TLS configuration for AFIP’s servers (and only those). They have worsened their security configuration, and it’s now seen as insecure by default on many environments.


  • Dropped support for Python < 3.6.

  • Dropped support for Django < 2.2.

  • Add support for Django 3.0.

  • Properly include factoryboy factories so that apps can reuse them.

  • Fix some issues with migrations when using external storages.


  • Fix crash when retrieving points of sales and their issuance_type has changed.

  • Sort receipt pdfs into buckets, to avoid clogging up a single directory.

  • Fix crash when generating PDFs and the logo is stored in a non-filesystem storage.

  • Dropped support for Django < 2.0


  • Store files in tidier directories. All files handled by the app will be in an afip subdirectory inside MEDIA_ROOT. This does not require any changes or updates; existing files will remain in their current location and continue to be perfectly usable.

  • Added settings to configure storages for different files we handle. See the documentation for details on these new settings.


  • Add support for Python 3.7.

  • Add support for Django 2.1 and Django 2.2

  • Dropped support for Django 2.0.

  • Dropped support for Python 3.4.

  • Fix deserialization bug for AFIP metadata models.

  • Include factories for third party usage. These are useful for third party apps to reuse for their own tests.


  • Fix ocasional bug rendering barcodes.

  • Officially support Django 2.0.

  • Fix some tests, and drop GitLab CI.


  • Moved project to GitHub (this release just updates the docs and links).


  • Add templates for B and C type credit notes


  • PDF rendering now relies on django_renderpdf, rather than in-tree code, and PDF views now subclass that package’s PDFView, meaning that all their functionality is also available. This results in several changes:

    • ReceiptHTMLView has been dropped. To force a view to render as an HTML, add the querystring html=true. If you want to disable this behaviour for your subclasses, add the allow_force_html = False attribute to your subclass.

    • ReceiptPDFView now makes browsers render the file by default, rather than prompting to download a file.

    • ReceiptPDFDisplayView has been dropped in favour of the above.

    • ReceiptPDFDownloadView prompts users to download a receipt’s PDF. The PDF’s file name is now customizable by overriding get_download_name.

  • Allow filtering receipts [in the admin] by type.

  • Allow filtering receipts [in the admin] by issued date.

  • Allow searching for currencies by code, as well as name.

  • Drop support for Django 1.10.


  • Replace pybarcode with python-barcode, which is a fork of the former currently being maintained (we no longer depend on –pre releases).


  • Fix failing tests due to refactor introduced in 4.1.5.


  • The Receipt admin now includes links to each Receipt’s PDF.

  • Enable editing related_receipts as auto-complete fields (Django >= 2.0 only).


  • Fix stylesheets for PDFs failing to load on non-filesystem storages.


  • Fix issues reading keys and certificates from non-filesystem storages.


  • Fix some issues rendering PDFs when not using the default static files app.


  • Fix service dates (None) being shown for product-only receipts.


  • All migrations have been squashed. Please upgrade to 4.0.0 before upgrading further. See the docs for details.

  • Support for adding custom logos to printable receipts has been added. See the new TaxPayerExtras class for details.


  • The ReceiptPDF.save_pdf_to method has been removed.

  • The active_since field has been moved from TaxPayerProfile to TaxPayer.

  • Invoices in the admin will show a small asterisk if their value in the original currency doesn’t match their value in ARS.

  • The ReceiptPDF class now has a new client_vat_condition field. Newly created instances must define this non-nullable field.

  • ReceiptPDF instances will now auto-generate the PDF file when they are saved if the receipt has been validated. Note that they are only generated ONCE, and regeneration must be done manually.

  • Added a new ReceiptPDFDisplayView, that shows a PDF without prompting users to download it.

  • Only minimal dependencies are now specified, rather that pinned versions (this should avoid silly conflicts with other libraries requiring newer versions).

  • ReceiptEntry.vat is now blankable, making forms and admins less confusing.

  • Remove old monkey-patching code for the ssl module. This no longer seems to be necessary.

  • Fix issues displaying static files in receipts when not running in development mode.

  • ReceiptPDF.client_address can now be blank, given that this field may be absent for certain receipt types.

  • Added total_vat and total_tax properties to Receipt. This should be pretty self-explanatory.


  • The ReceiptPDF.save_pdf_to method has been deprecated and will be removed in 4.0.0.

  • VAT conditions in models are now limited to know types – this should very much help create UIs and forms. If you come across a missing VAT condition, please open an issue for it.

  • Improved the documentation surrounding PDF generation.


  • Use CAE expirations for receipt barcodes, not receipt expiration. This is the behaviour follows by AFIP’s own generators, even though the spec doesn’t explicitly state this.


  • New runtime dependency: pyBarcode>=0.8b1.

  • The receipt class now has a is_validated property to check if a single instance has been validated.

  • All internal errors now raise DjangoAfipException or a subclass of it.

  • Add barcodes to receipt PDFs (AFIP 1702/04).

  • TaxPayer certs are now blankable, which should improve admin usability, as well as make forms for new TaxPayers friendlier. You might need to check your forms if users are expected to always provide a certificate.

  • Certificate expiration dates are now stored (via a pre-save hook) and exposed by the TaxPayer model. This should also make it impossible to upload garbage instead of a proper certificate file.


  • Receipt entries are now shown in the Receipts admin.

  • Fix receipt entries being mis-rendered (missing quantity) in PDFs.

  • Allow generating PDFs for receipts via the admin.

  • Use PES (ARS) as a default currency for Receipts (only if metadata is present), and ‘1’ as a currency quote.

  • Customized admins are now included for a few more models.


  • The entire ReceiptBatch model has been dropped, along with Validation. Receipts are now validated via Receipt querysets, eg: Receipt.objects.filter(...).validate(). The existing ReceiptValidation objects remain unchanged.

  • Validation of Receipts can now be done in a single action via the Receipt admin.

  • Receipt instances have a new validate() method to validate that single receipt.

  • The receiptnumber tag is now deprecated. Use Receipt.formatted_number instead.


  • Drop support for Django 1.9, support Django 1.11.

  • The default ordering of Receipt instances has now changed, both via querysets and in the admin.

  • The total amount for receipts is not shown in ARS.

  • CI now run tests with all supported Python and Django versions.

  • This version has experimental Django 2.0 support.

  • Include a new ReceiptPDF admin.

  • All exceptions now inherit from DjangoAfipException.


  • Language settings of downstream apps should no longer generate bogus migrations for django-afip.


  • It is now possible to generate keys and CSRs for taxpayers, both programmatically, and via the admin.

  • The AuthTicket.authorize method no longer takes a save argument. Authorized tickets are now always immediately saved.

  • Add a missing migration.


  • Fix an error validating receipts with not VAT or Tax.


  • We now rely on zeep, rather suds, update your dependencies accordingly.


  • Raise CertificateExpired, UntrustedCertificate or AuthenticationError when attempting an authentication fail.

  • The field ReceiptEntry.amount has been renamed to quantity.

  • Add a links to documentation on where to obtain the AFIP WS certificates.

  • Introduce this changelog.


  • Fix inconsistencies in the return type for ReceiptBatch.validate().

  • Fix bad file names in PDF views.


  • Switched from suds-py3 to suds-redux. This should make installation a lot easier, since the latter is available on PyPI.


  • Fix a crash when fetching more than one point of sale.


  • Add support for Django 1.10.

  • The profile parameter has been dropped from the ReceiptPDF.create_for_receipt method.

  • Use PyOpenSSL to sign authentication tickets.

  • Dropped runtime dependency: The openssl binary is no longer required.

  • Added runtime dependency: pyOpenSSL.


  • The package version is not exposed via django_afip.__version__

  • Lots of documentation improvements!

  • Improve handling of some errors returned by AFIP’s WS when using invalid credentials.


  • Work around PyPI issues which resulted in failed deployments.


  • Each ReceiptEntry can now have a VAT attached to it.

  • Add a missing migration.

  • Each TaxPayer instance now has an is_sandboxed flag. Sandboxes and non-sandboxed users can now coexist. This flag should be updated to the current value of settings.AFIP_DEBUG. This setting had been dropped and will no longer be used.

  • Include a management command afipmetadata, to fetch all metadata from AFIP’s WS.

  • Make the ssl monkey-patching as least invasive as possible.

  • Improve error handling for openssl calls.

  • Add a new template tag format_cuit, which can be used to format numbers as CUITs.


  • Save PDF receipts into a receipts directory inside the media directory.


  • Only allow one TaxPayerProfile per TaxPayer.


  • Tidy up exception handling and corner cases for PDF generation.


  • Only allow a single ReceiptPDF instance per Receipt.

  • Failed receipt validations no longer raise an exception, but rather return a list of errors (since this handles partial validations better).

  • Lots of improvements to unit tests and error checking.
