In my opinion, the Directive fails to address key issues, without which it will be impossible to achieve real financial and environmental gains for Europe and the business community that serves it.
Whilst I would always welcome all efforts to encourage the use of e-invoicing, in my view this Directive just scratches the surface and leaves many unanswered questions. My fear is that it will actually serve to delay the full economic benefits of e-invoicing, which would make €2.3 billion look like small change.

We were a bit in doubt whether we should write about a press release we just received in our e-mail inbox. Or whether we were to covertly tweet about it. It concerns the frequently asked questions about e-invoicing in public e-procurement. Similar to the explanatory notes on the 2010 EU e-invoicing directive here and here.
Though it does provide some clearance. However some things are still left unanswered. Like "what is an e-invoice?" or "What is de role of PEPPOL in this topic?". So in the near future we hope to unlock these also. But for now....here goes:
