Australia Approves B2B e-Invoicing

Australia B2B e-Invoicing

The Australian Government (Department of Treasury) has taken initiative with the Business e-Invoicing Right (BER) to push for the adoption of Business-to-Business (B2B) e-Invoicing in Australia. Currently, the Australian Government is seeking for public feedback by consulting stakeholders (like EDICOM) to Support Business eInvoicing adoption. 

Gradually, all companies will be able to request their trading partners to send them e-Invoices in the PEPPOL format. The objective of the BER initiative is to gradually introduce the obligatory use of e-Invoicing among Australian companies based on their size.

The BER has three proposed implementation phases:

  • From July 1, 2023: All companies can require their large trading partners to send them e-Invoices in the PEPPOL format. Large companies will be obligated to send e-Invoices in the PEPPOL format upon the request of the BER.
  • From July 1, 2024: All companies can require their medium to large trading partners to send them e-Invoices in the PEPPOL format. Medium and large companies will be obligated to send e-Invoices in the PEPPOL format upon the request of the BER.
  • From July 1, 2025: All companies will be required to exchange e-Invoices in the PEPPOL format. All companies will be obligated to send e-Invoices in the PEPPOL format upon the request of the BER. 

EDICOM is a PEPPOL Access Point accredited by the Australian Tax Authority

Australia has adopted the PEPPOL standard for the exchange of invoices in an electronic format. Communication through the PEPPOL network requires a PEPPOL Access Point that can communicate and transform messages in accordance with the PEPPOL standard. EDICOM is an Access Point that is accredited by the Australian Tax Authority (ATO), and Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) in New Zealand.
