The Australian Government has announced the eInvoicing Week 2022 from 15th to 21st of August 2022. It is a week of economy-wide multi-media communication activities and events run with business, software providers, industry or professional associations and their networks.

What you need to know about Peppol
Peppol was initially created to facilitate cross-border public contracting between EU countries. Due to its interoperability and practicality, as well as its communications infrastructure, it has been expanding on a global level.
The Peppol system enables the delivery and receipt of invoices, credit notes, orders, order responses, catalogues, etc. using the Peppol standard. Businesses and public administrations can securely communicate their data through certified Access points in each country.
eInvoicing in Australia
The Australian Government (Department of Treasury) recently took initiative with the Business eInvoicing Right (BER) to push for the adoption of Business-to-Business (B2B) eInvoicing in Australia. Following this consultation, the Government has invested a further $15.3 million to enhance the value of e-Invoicing for businesses and increase business awareness and adoption.
The funding will support the Treasury and the Australian Peppol Authority to:
• Work with payment providers to integrate e-Invoicing into the main payment methods used by business
• Deliver educational activities to raise business awareness of e-Invoicing
• Progress supply chain pilots with large businesses to gain insights and drive adoption across supply chains
• Continue work with states and territories to increase public sector e-Invoicing adoption.
Regarding B2G eInvoicing, the Australian government has launched an initiative for the adoption of e-Invoicing in the public sector. From July 1st, 2022, the use of e-Invoicing will be mandatory for all Commonwealth Agencies following the Peppol standard.
