State of play of B2G e-Invoicing in the EU

As of 18 April 2019, e-Invoicing will be the invoicing system required between government agencies and providers to create a competitive market that powers interoperability and trade between companies. The date may be extended to 18 April 2020 for regional organisations.

Directive 2014/55/EU regulates e-Invoicing in public procurement and is aimed at reducing the cross-border obstacles to trade arising from the coexistence of different national legal requirements and technical standards on e-Invoicing. Each EU Member State must draft its own transposition of the law to adapt the e-Invoicing model to its legislative framework.

The European Commission tasked the European Committee for Standardisation (CEN) with creating e-Invoicing standards to facilitate the adoption of electronic invoicing. The national formats used must be compatible with these standards.

PEPPOL use on the rise across the European Union

Use of the common and interoperable PEPPOL standard is expanding across the private and public spheres so that enterprises of any size can engage in cross-border public procurement processes.

EDICOM is PEPPOL Access Point certified and makes it possible to connect with any of the European public administrations.

B2B e-Invoicing is increasing

As EU countries adopt e-Invoicing models into their public procurement processes, the system is being expanded to the rest of the business network. These advances will make it mandatory for companies to seek technology solutions that adjust to their economic resources and internal process modifications.

Having a central invoicing platform could make this step easier, seamlessly expanding their use to private firms.

The first country to legislate invoicing between private companies is Italy.

Guarantee authenticity and integrity of your invoices

The European eIDAS regulation (Regulation 910/2014) establishes a legal framework for e-identification mechanisms. Certification as a qualified trust service provider means that EDICOM can give electronic transactions the trust mechanisms that guarantee authenticity and integrity, such as:

Qualified digital signature
