EESPA publishes annual Public Policy Positions: recommendations for stakeholders

EESPA and its members seek to engage in the public policy debate on e-invoicing in the interests of wider e-invoicing adoption. The Summary (v8.0 dated 10 November 2017) of current public positions on relevant topics are published for all stakeholders and cover the following key issues:

1
EESPA has a vision of ‘the complete digitization of supply chain and e-invoicing processes, based on an interoperable eco-system, ease of use, and secure and sustainable processes’, and supports concerted action by all stakeholders to promote the benefits of e-invoicing for both the public and private sector.
2
The EU should continue to promote greater uniformity and legal clarity in e-invoicing and e-archiving laws and regulations, which should be unambiguous, harmonised and practical to implement. There is a growing trend towards the imposition of additional requirements, typically for real-time reporting of invoices to the tax authorities at EU Member State level, which is creating new elements of fragmentation.
3
The new EU core invoice standard (EN) is an important enabling initiative but needs a strong focus on implementation, to ensure its success.
4
Europe should look outwards and evaluate e-invoicing policy models in other continents for its own use, suitably tailored towards the European Single Market and Digital Agenda.
5
Policies related to e-procurement and e-invoicing should be solution neutral and recognize the trend towards ‘cloud’ based service and outsourcing models.
6
EESPA is pleased to participate in a wide range of legal, policy and implementation-related initiatives.

These positions were approved at the EESPA Annual General Meeting on 30 November 2018.
