ACCA updates its research on UK/EU SME e-invoicing adoption

 is part of ACCA’s contribution to a Parliamentary Inquiry into e-invoicing adoption by the UK public sector, and how it can benefit small government suppliers.

For most of you ACCA may be unknown. However ACCA blows its whistle when it comes to e-invoicing adoption in Europe and the UK:

  • ACCA is a member of the UK National E-Invoicing Forum UK and was represented in the European Multi-Stakeholder Forum (EMSF) on E-invoicing in 2011 and 2012. As part of the UK delegation, ACCA led the Forum’s work to identify what policies and commercial practices have most successfully promoted e-invoicing adoption around Europe. This work culminated in ACCA’s report to the European Commission entitled Good Practices in the Adoption and Promotion of E-invoicing in EU Member States.

  • ACCA was also represented in the EMSF Working Group on improving e-invoicing adoption statistics. Prompted by their experience there, ACCA recommended that a question on e-invoicing be added to the UK SME Finance Monitor, the definitive survey of UK SMEs’ access to finance. The result was a unique dataset of e-invoicing adoption and the characteristics of adopters, which ACCA used in 2012 to develop its report Use of E-invoicing by SMEs, the first-ever comprehensive report into adoption by UK SMEs.
