The complete and integrated solution for managing the entire electronic invoicing exchange process

In addition to fulfilling regulatory obligations, our service allows you to manage and standardize the information within issued and received documents, “translating” them into the correct format and automating communications with the Interchange System.

1. Receipt and Standardization

The solution receives electronic invoices in formats supported by customer software and management systems, standardizing data for transmission to the Interchange System based on regulatory requirements. Before sending, if necessary, the system digitally signs all invoices to be sent and verifies the formal correctness of the data required for transmission, eliminating transmission errors.

2. Acquisition and Transmission
We transmit documents directly to the Interchange System through a dedicated function, utilizing the transmission channels of our accredited platform. Messages and notifications received from the Interchange System are automatically acquired, and the management system simultaneously updates the progress status on individual invoices.

3. Archiving and Conservation

The solution includes compliant digital archiving of invoices. Invoices are automatically archived from the reception phase by customer systems. You can easily view invoices and related notifications through a system of views and search keys that can be customized based on customer needs.

4. Acquisition of Passive Invoices in XML Format

Acquire passive invoices received via enabled connector in electronic format. If necessary, the service converts received invoices into the accepted and most suitable format for customer software and management systems. Additionally, through the portal, it is always possible to view received invoices.

2. International and European Electronic Invoicing

Other European countries are gradually moving towards the obligation of B2B electronic invoicing: France, Belgium, Poland, and Latvia, for example, have already confirmed this. However, it is highly likely that each country will adopt different standards and methods. Through a partnership with Pagero, a smart business network globally, our company ensures through its management platforms adequate interoperability of electronic invoicing at the European and international levels. We commit to receiving electronic invoices from its customers, transferring them to Pagero, which will convert the digital documents into the most suitable format for the digital infrastructure of each country.

Frequently asked questions on the electronic invoicing

1. Differences between Structured and Unstructured Electronic Invoicing

The main difference between structured and unstructured electronic invoicing lies in the modes and formats of transmission. Unstructured invoices are typically in PDF, Word, PNG, or JPG format and are usually exchanged via email. However, invoices exchanged in this way cannot be considered electronic invoices. Electronic invoices must have a structured format, meaning a format that is automatically readable by business systems and the Interchange System.

2. Can I Issue Electronic Invoices to a Foreign Customer?

To send an electronic invoice to a foreign customer, it is necessary to first issue a regular electronic invoice, indicating the correct code in the “customer code” field and routing it through the Interchange System. However, the customer may have specific requirements for the electronic invoice format based on their country’s laws or business systems. In such cases, it may be useful to rely on experienced service providers in the specific field.

3. What Is PEPPOL Access Point to Facilitate Electronic Invoicing?

A PEPPOL Access Point is a service provider that allows connecting to the PEPPOL network and sending invoices through this channel. PEPPOL is an acronym for the IT infrastructure enabling B2B and PA companies to exchange invoices across Europe.

4. Can Electronic Invoices Be Sent via EDI?

Absolutely, electronic invoices can be exchanged via EDI, along with all other documents in the order cycle (sending orders, receiving confirmations, and optionally transport documents). If you want to exchange invoices via EDI, the only consideration is to ensure that the invoices sent to the Interchange System are accepted and error-free.

5. Is It Mandatory to Archive Invoices in Electronic Format?

Yes, it is mandatory to archive invoices in electronic format. Invoices are valid fiscal documents and must be retained for at least 10 years, as specified in Article 2220 of the Civil Code.
