Spanish Public Administration already received close to 5 million e-invoices this year

EDICOM announced that from January to October this year, 4,630,681 e-invoices were submitted via FACe, the general point of entry to the Spanish public administrations. The data from the Ministry of Finance and Public Administration (MINHAP) shows evidence of the gradual consolidation of this technology in Spanish companies.

The figures are corroborated by the EDICOM Permanent e-Invoicing Observatory. According to this analysis, the platform run by EDICOM handled 2.287.463 e-invoices issued to the different Spanish administrations. The figure includes bills submitted via the FACe entry point (general point of entry for e-invoicing managed by the General State Administration), as well as those received through entry points created ad-hoc by some administrations.

Miguel Soler, EDICOM Facturae platform Product Manager:
“Spanish legislation allows public administrations to manage their bills through FACe or create their own points of entry. Both options are possible and, in many cases, complementary. In fact, of all the e-invoices that have been issued through EDICOM’s Facturae platform, 45% were forwarded to own points. The rest account for 30% of all documents registered by FACe in this period.”

After the General State Administration, the entry point that receives most e-invoices is that of the Catalan autonomous community, representing 10.6% of all documents issued by the EDICOM Public Administration HUB. The entry point of the Andalusian Regional Government (9.1%) takes second place, followed by those of the Xunta de Galicia (8.8%) and the Basque Country Health Service, Osakidetza (7.6%).

Ongoing development

As of last January 15, public sector suppliers and service providers are required to use this mandatory technology in their business relations with the Administration. In this sense, both the reports from the EDICOM Permanent e-Invoicing Observatory and MINHAP point to progressive growth in the first months of the year. “The EDICOM platform data show that the number of invoices more than tripled between February and October, an ongoing uptrend that was also observed by the FACe”.
