e-Invoicing in the Netherlands
Characteristics of the electronic invoice in the Netherlands
The electronic invoice in the Netherlands is based on various European norms. Its use is mandatory for public administrations and voluntary for B2B transactions. EDICOM is an authorized PEPPOL Access Point Provider for e-Invoicing services in the Netherlands, approved by the Dutch Peppol Authority, Nederlandse Peppolautoriteit (NPA).
All public administrations and contracting authorities must be able to receive electronic invoices. New suppliers must also be able to issue invoices. Private companies can use electronic invoices as long as their clients agree, and the invoice meets the legal requirements.
Electronic invoices sent to the public sector can be sent following the PEPPOL model. Government institutions also use a PEPPOL connected platform called DIGIPOORT for the reception of electronic invoices.
