e-Invoicing in Belgium
Characteristics of the electronic invoice in Belgium
The use of electronic invoices in Belgium was adopted in 2013, at which time the government declared e-Invoices had the same validity as paper invoices. In the public sector, it is mandatory for all federal and central administrations to receive e-Invoices. This obligation applies to suppliers of such public entities in several regions (Brussels, Flanders, Wallonia). Now, the obligation to issue e-Invoices has been extended to all suppliers of public administrations.
The electronic invoice is mandatory for B2G transactions with the central public administrations and the federal public administrations. While not currently mandatory in the B2B environment, the government is actively pushing for future adoption.
