Expert Group on e-Invoicing: “There is no future for paper invoices!”

July 17, 2008  |  Uncategorized

The Expert Group on Electronic Invoicing, set up by a European Commission Decision with the task to contribute to the creation of a European eInvoicing Framework, has published its first status report.

The Expert Group on e-Invoicing started its work at the end of February 2008. The Expert Group consists of 30 specialists representing all stakeholders: consumers, SMEs, large enterprises, service providers and public authorities.

The tasks of the Expert Group are to identify business requirements and responsibilities for the execution of specific work, as well as to steer the creation – by the end of 2009 – of a European e-Invoicing Framework.

The purpose of the European e-Invoicing Framework is to establish a common conceptual structure to support the provision of e-Invoicing services in an open and interoperable manner across Europe.

The Expert Group has issued a short status report which provides stakeholders with information about the progress of the Group’s work since its formation. Until now, the Group has held several meetings and established a series of initiatives to address a key opportunity for enhancing efficiency and productivity in the digital environment. A mid-term report will be issued before the end of 2008.
