B2B electronic invoicing in Europe

The increase in electronic models implemented in the public sector inevitably entails the expansion of these systems to the private sphere

e-Invoicing between private companies

The increase in electronic models implemented in the public sector, such as B2B e-Invoicing and VAT compliance, inevitably entails the expansion of these systems to the private sphere.

This adoption of electronic models offers medium- and long-term advantages for all enterprises by cutting costs on resources allocated to processing and archiving paper and enhanced information processing. Companies that already have EDI systems can harness the investment made and adapt electronic processes to their other commercial flows. The main aim is to consolidate or implement technologies targeted at automating work processes and optimising operations.

The search for efficiency and competitiveness in a global setting powers enhanced interoperability between the stakeholders involved in invoicing processes.

The case of e-Invoicing in Italy

Italy was the first country in the European Union to legislate mandatory e-Invoicing between private businesses.

The Emilia-Romagna region made it compulsory in 2015 for the healthcare system to issue only electronic purchase orders to its suppliers, adopting the use of the PEPPOL format.

Dematerialisation in the Italian healthcare sector continues to evolve and the government plans to require that by 2018 all public sector healthcare providers must be equipped to receive electronic orders over the NSO (Nodo Smistamento Ordini) platform using the PEPPOL standard.
