This paper deals with some classes of nonlinear implicit difference equations obtained via discretization of nonlinear differential-algebraic or partial differential-algebraic equations. The unique solvability of discretized problems is proved and the compatibility between index notions for nonlinear differential-algebraic equations and nonlinear implicit difference equations is studied.
