Norway: Digitization of B2G invoicing drives B2B invoicing market development

The Norwegian public sector has become increasingly digitized in the last few years. The digitization is a result of several different initiatives by the government, ministries and other authorities. The development is moving forward very quickly, which naturally effects our industry in a positive way.

  • For all contracts signed with the public sector in Norway after July 1st 2012, it is a legal requirement to send e-invoices in the EHF format.
  • From January 1st 2015, the same requirement applies to all suppliers to municipalities in Norway.
  • In the future, the access points in Norway will be required to offer more features such as receipt handing, encryption, electronic signatures etc. Suppliers to the public sector will also be required to be able to handle electronic order messages starting in 2017-2018.

The Norwegian public sector has chosen to communicate through the PEPPOL network and in 2015, approximately 21 million electronic invoices were exchanged via PEPPOL Norway. The number of recipients that are connected to the network increases with more than 50 companies per day.
