    On the Tungsten Blog, Charles Bryant posted an interesting article about the way e-invoicing is excuted in Mexico. As the title suggests, Charles Bryant carefully explores whether Europe should follow this approach.

    All in all it is intriguing to ask whether the current path of EU liberalised e-invoicing (without B2B mandates) should perhaps be flipped for a path where mandated e-invoicing and fiscal efficiency go hand in hand.
