e-Invoicing Compliance

Talk to an expert with deep e-Invoicing experience and expertise

What is e-invoicing compliance and why is it so important?

E-invoicing compliance can be broadly defined as adhering to the legal standards and rules governing the sending and receiving of electronic invoices by suppliers and buyers. These regulations vary across different countries, with specific invoice content requirements established by local laws. The stipulated prerequisites depend on the jurisdiction under which an invoice is issued.

The 2023 EU Report on the VAT Gap highlights the challenges tax authorities confronted in ensuring optimal revenue collection. Across the globe, tax authorities are enacting measures to narrow this gap, with many nations presently contemplating their implementation. The EU Commission’s report on VAT in the Digital Age not only mapped out the favorable outcomes linked to the adoption of such measures but also put forth recommendations for the uniform integration of these approaches. Change is on the horizon – and whether it has already begun impacting your business or not, prioritizing compliance with e-invoicing regulations is increasingly imperative.

Why is e-invoicing compliance so critical to my business?

Changes to regulations and the introduction of government controls have made e-invoicing compliance a critical part of business. Government mandates for e-invoicing are rapidly expanding across the globe. While the mandates have much in common across countries, the process, requirements, and legalities are unique for each. For example, countries are implementing invoice models such as centralized, clearance, and interoperability. This creates a highly complex tapestry requiring a specialist to manage.

*Please note, specific country compliance regulations may change periodically.
