Solution to Europe’s E-Invoicing Mandate

The EU Directive on e-invoicing and public procurement (2014/55/EU) gives countries the opportunity to implement local legislation requiring suppliers to send e-invoices to public administrations (PA) with the goal of making e-invoicing the predominant invoicing method in Europe. Through this directive, all European public administrations must be able to accept invoices in electronic format from their suppliers.

There is a significant trend emerging as more European governments are now mandating e-invoicing for B2B or B2C transactions in an effort to increase efficiency in collecting VAT and tackle tax fraud. And e-invoicing requirements in many European countries continues to evolve, whether B2G, B2B or B2C. Complying with these global e-invoicing regulations is an increasingly complex process, one which Esker can facilitate.

Esker helps companies process e-invoices in compliance with the unique specifications of European countries. This includes processing any format (e.g., PDF, UBL, Facturae in Spain, Fattura-PA in Italy, etc.), communicating with PA platforms (including PEPPOL) to send e-invoices with status updates, and providing e-invoice archiving that’s compliant with regulatory frameworks.
