B2B e-Invoicing

Electronic invoices sent between companies must comply with established regulations in order to preserve the integrity and authenticity of digital documents.

e-Invoicing between private companies

The increase of electronic models implemented in the public sector means expansion of e-Invoicing systems in the private sector.

This adoption of electronic models offers medium- and long-term advantages for all companies. Companies see a reduction in processing costs and paper archiving costs. They also see better information processing. Companies that already have EDI systems in place can take advantage of the investment made and adapt electronic processes to their other workflows. Their main objective is to consolidate or implement technologies aimed at automating work processes and optimizing operations.

The search for efficiency and competitiveness in a global environment provides greater interoperability between all involved in the invoicing process.

The status of B2B e-Invoicing in Europe

B2B e-invoicing in Europe is regulated by Directive 2010/45/EU. This explicitly imposes criteria of authenticity of origin and content integrity, which must be obtained in three possible ways. In this regard, Italy was the first country in the European Union that, in addition to mandating e-Invoicing, implemented a mandatory e-Invoicing system between private companies. France also legislated this B2B e-Invoicing model, with the requirement starting in 2023.

 

  • Through an EDI-based exchange.

  • Through an advanced electronic signature.

  • Through internal auditing processes that analyze invoice tracking.
