Updated draft law on e-invoicing to the Swedish public sector

Pagero has previously written about the Swedish government’s plans to introduce legal requirements for e-Invoicing to the public sector in Sweden in compliance with the e-Invoicing Directive 2014/55/EU. The Swedish government has now published an updated draft law that involves even more extensive changes than previously announced.

The main elements of the draft law are as follows:

  • Effective 1 April 2019, all contracting entities shall exclusively receive and process electronic invoices.
  • Also effective as of this date, all suppliers to contracting authorities shall exclusively send electronic invoices to the contracting authorities.
  • The electronic invoices shall be in a format that complies with the European standard (EN) or in a different structured format agreed upon between the contracting entity and the supplier.
  • No paper or PDF invoices will be allowed as of this date.

According to decisions taken in December 2015, all contracting authorities shall be able to use PEPPOL for the transmission of electronic documents as of 1 November 2018.

Pagero’s cloud-based platform Pagero Online supports a number of formats that are EN-compliant (including the formats Svefaktura and PEPPOL BIS that are now being discussed). We have extensive experience of PEPPOL and it is already used by many contracting entities and suppliers in Sweden.
