Greece to implement mandatory B2G electronic invoicing
Greece will implement mandatory B2G electronic invoicing in 2023
The Greek government announced through its Official Gazette on April 12, 2023, Law 4972/2022 which regulates and defines the phased introduction of electronic invoicing with public administrations. The law, which modifies Law 4601/2019, will come into force five months after its publication, meaning that the obligation will be effective on September 12, 2023.
The law indicates that public entities must be able to receive and process invoices in electronic format, and suppliers must send electronic invoices to public administrations following European standards. The chosen model is Peppol, so it is necessary to have accredited Peppol Access Points for sending the documents.
The government has published an implementation schedule based on the classification of public entities.
