To promote the adoption of UBL and the benefits of UBL e-invoicing, a free label has been developed that (1) allows organisations to communicate their ‘UBL Readiness’ to their respective customers and supplier, called: ‘UBL Ready’, and (2) provides support for organisations that want to implement UBL e-invoicing.
To become UBL Ready an organisation has to proof that it can either import the validated demo files of other UBL Ready participants, or produce a UBL+PDF e-invoice file that –after validation- can be imported by other UBL Ready participants. All in all, applicants only have to perform five or less steps to become UBL Ready! This way UBL Ready promotes easy, free, flawless, seamless exchange and processing of e-invoices!

Stefan Engel-Flechsig wrote a post announcing that France and Germany are working on a common e-invoicing format. The co-operation mainly focuses on two areas: first, the question of a common Franco-German accounting form, which can be used in the same way in both countries and takes into account the requirements of the future EU accounting form. On the other hand, both forums have dealt with the legal requirements of electronic invoices and the audit by the auditors in the two countries.
