France: Chorus Portal Pro 2017 test run together with EDICOM

December 22, 2016  |  Electronic Invoicing, Europe, Government

France is into the final stretch of the mandatory B2G e-invoicing rollout. As of last September 20, 18 public institutions are voluntarily taking part in the pilot project for Chorus Portal Pro 2017, the billing management tool due to replace the current Chorus Portal from next January.

EDICOM is also working with these public bodies to facilitate their incorporation to this system. The aim of the test period is to check that dematerialization is on schedule  to be up and running by the deadline set in Ordinance Nº 2014-697.

The French government ruling requires large companies of more than 5000 employees to adopt e-invoicing on a mandatory basis from January 1 in their business relations with the Public Sector. In other words, all public bodies must also be ready to use this paperless system by the same deadline. Thereafter, the legislation sets out a schedule for gradual adjustment depending on the size of the companies, finally reaching smaller businesses in January 2020.
