News about electronic invoicing in Europe

EDICOM always keeps an eye on international electronic invoicing.

e-Invoicing France

France is moving forward with its new electronic taxation system for private companies. It is currently finalizing the new B2B electronic invoicing and e-Reporting model.

e-Invoicing Italy

The system used for electronic invoicing between private companies is very similar to that of the public administration. Through the Sistema di Interscambio (SdI), companies can issue and receive electronic invoices, as well as corresponding notifications.

e-Invoicing Poland

Poland is making progress in its project to massively introduce electronic invoicing between private companies. The use of B2B electronic invoicing is expected to be mandatory beginning in 2023.

The state of electronic invoicing in Europe's public administrations

Electronic invoicing has been mandatory between public administrations and their suppliers since April 18, 2020. This creates a competitive market that promotes interoperability and business between various companies.

Directive 2014/55/EU regulates e-Invoicing in public procurement and aims to reduce trade barriers arising from different national legal requirements and technical standards for e-Invoicing. Each EU member state has developed its own implementation of the law, adapting the electronic invoicing model to its own legislative framework.

B2B electronic invoicing continues to grow in Europe

As European Union countries consolidate electronic invoicing models in their public procurement processes, this system is spreading to the rest of the business world. These advances push companies to seek technological solutions that adapt to their economic resources and to the modification of internal processes.

In terms of legislation, B2B e-Invoicing in Europe is based on Directive 2010/45/EU. This establishes 3 methods to guarantee the integrity and authenticity of electronic document exchange.

 

Electronic data interchange
