  2. My suggestion for the CEF Telecom 2017-3 call for proposals on e-invoicing

    Doesn’t it feel a bit weird that EU community money (!) was spent on a new standard that is aimed be used by everyone, mandated (!) in the EU, but that is not freely available (!) because CEN holds the IP rights (!), and meanwhile there is €4 million available to promote adoption of this standard?

  1. Will governments still promote PEPPOL once mandatory B2G e-invoicing is in full force?

    It will not last for years. Once the authorities receive their invoices electronically from suppliers, you can expect promotion of PEPPOL as well as a related task force to be scaled down. 

  2. “Italy’s public administration has saved EUR 1 billion with mandatory e-invoicing”

    Electronic invoicing is one of the key projects in Italy’s Digital Agenda, AGID adds. Since the beginning of this year, the FatturaPA system can be used for free by companies and citizens to send invoices.

  3. First UBL+PDF demo invoices based on the EN 16931-1 E-invoicing Standard now available!

    To support organisations that have to or want to implement this new EN 16931 standard, UBL Ready set out to develop demo reference files based on the UBL syntax and fully compliant with EN 19631. These files are now publicly available. The demo invoices are available in both UBL and PDF format with an explanation on the structure and calculation of the invoice.

    UBL Ready currently provides the following demo files:

    1. An extensive e-invoice with multiple VAT rates, discounts and surcharges – UBL + PDF

    2. The extensive e-invoice, with additional UBL elements allowed by EN 16931 (though not necessary) – UBL + PDF

    3. Credit note based on the extensive e-invoice – UBL + PDF

    UBL Ready is currently working on other demo e-invoice files based on EN 16931, as well as working on a conversion guideline for those that already implemented UBL2.1/2.0.

  4. OASIS initiates UBL Payments and Finance Subcommittee

    The OASIS subcommittee is aimed at identifying requirements for standardized UBL document types supporting payments- and finance-related processes and to develop UBL payments and finance process and document model(s).

  5. Nailing successful B2G e-invoicing: Scotland shows how it’s done!

    Of course all over Europe government have to be able to receive and process e-invoices from its suppliers. Most of the times when an e-invoicing project is initiated, the initiator tends to make it easier for himself, imposing any burdens on the others. This is worrying to say the least, because as B2G e-invoicing is meant to reduce administrative burdens, it is no exception that the implemented (read: imposed/mandated) solution actually increases administrative burdens for companies.

    Luckily there are some areas in Europe that understand that you increase your benefits with e-invoicing by facilitating your suppliers. In Scotland for instance. They are doing things differently…

  6. What are the differences between PEPPOL BIS 4A – Invoice and the EU 16963-1

    With the new European Standard for e-invoicing (public procurement) EU 16963-1 on the horizon, it is interesting to know how it differs from PEPPOL BIS 4A. Is there an analysis available with the differences between the both?

  7. Slovenia receives CEF Funding for e-invoicing adoption
