Characteristics of the electronic invoice in Australia

Australia began its electronic invoicing project with New Zealand in 2018 through the “Australia and New Zealand Government Electronic Invoicing Arrangement”. Since then, the Australian government has embarked on multiple initiatives in its digitalization strategy to incentivize private companies and public organizations to adopt the electronic invoice. It is highly likely that the Australian tax authority will publish a mass adoption plan for all taxpayers. Currently, it has announced that all government agencies must use the electronic invoice by July 2022.
