Slovenia receives CEF Funding for e-invoicing adoption

The European Commission has decided to support and co-finance Slovenia’s CEF funding proposal to advance its E-Invoicing system and align it with the relevant EU legislation.

The action titled “Readiness Of Slovenian E-Invoicing” (ROSE) is prepared and implemented by the Public Payments Administration of the Republic of Slovenia, Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Slovenia, ZZI d.o.o., Mojdenar IT d.o.o. and Centre for European Perspective who coordinates the action. The action is launched on 1 June 2017 and it will be completed by 31 May 2018.


The objective of this Action is to increase the uptake and use of e-invoicing of 90% of the Slovene contracting authorities and contracting entities, and to be compliant with newly adopted European standard (EN) on electronic invoicing by the end of May 2018. Implemented eDelivery DSI will establish conditions of interoperability on local and national level and in cross-border communications.


EU countries and the European Commission introduced a European Standard for e-Invoicing in response to the many e-invoice formats used across the EU. These varied formats cause unnecessary complexity and high costs for economic operators and public entities and prevent electronic invoices to flow seamlessly across the EU.

Actions and deliverables

To achieve targeted uptake and use of e-invoicing and compliance with EN and document delivery for contracting authorities several actions will be undertaken:

  1. The existing single entry and exit point at the Public Payment Administration will be upgraded.
  2. The Slovenian e-Invoices standard will be eSLOG aligned with the newly adopted European standard.
  3. According to the European Directive on electronic invoicing in public procurement (2014/55/EU), the receipt of e-invoices send in the European standard is also required from public service providers other than budget users – in large number local utility and public services companies. The action will pay special attention to introduce and support the implementation of this new standard.
  4. Training of local contracting entities and solution providers as well as promotion and dissemination activities will build awareness and understanding of Slovenian local utility and other public service providers of EU standardisation of e-invoicing and their obligations of receiving it.
  5. Deliverables will be produced as reusable building blocks to support trans-European connectivity and will be available for wider deployment.
