  3. Spanish Facturae to cut Public Administration debts to suppliers

    On 23 October, Congress approved the law promoting electronic billing and the creation of a single Accounts Register for payments in the Public Sector, which comes into force as of next year, 2014. This drive towards a paperless Public Administration. But in addition to this, Facturae is also an excellent way to cut down on Public Sector late payments to suppliers.

    As of January this year, all Administrations will have an accounting record for invoices, whose managers will forward the information on invoices received to the Tax Authority. This will also allow for better knowledge of payments pending, and therefore greater control of any possible delays that might occur.

  1. Combatting fraud and increasing security with the Brazilian ‘Receiver Respons’

    Brazilian NF-e legislation prescribes that electronic invoice NF-e receivers have to perform process updates towards the tax authorities on the e-invoices received. The Receiver Response has already been made mandatory for fuel distributors, service stations, carriers and retail fuel resellers. And it is expected to be extended the next few years.

    The first aim of the mandatory use of “receiver responses’ is to provide greater security in combatting company fiscal transactions. It also provides the receiver with legal security. For example, an Invoice for which the confirmation event is issued can no longer be cancelled by the issuer.
