E-invoicing is a better way to do business: it is cheaper, faster, less erroneous, streamlines directly into accounting processes, and is more environmentally friendly than paper and digital invoicing. Because of the introduction of e-invoicing, the development of business and financial transactions has undergone a digitization process in recent decades.
Although the benefits of implementing e-invoicing for both governments and companies are obvious, with the exception of a few countries, the worldwide adoption level is relatively low.
At the same time, initiatives have been launched per country, which ensures us that the e-invoicing landscape will look very different in the near future (1-5 years). For instance, are you up to date on e-invoicing regulations in Germany?
The main difficulty for the international rollout of e-invoicing lies in the fact that every country can have its own systems, XML dialect, methodologies, processes and regulations. Most countries will approach e-invoicing as a project on its own, as there is no international organisation setting up a single blueprint that can be implemented in all countries. Because of the differences, it is necessary to have access to organisations, or hire employees, with knowledge about the specific country, language, techniques and other expertises that are needed to make the rollout of e-invoicing possible in each specific country.
Knowing that the e-invoicing landscape can develop rapidly, it is important to be aware of the latest and upcoming changes in the countries where your organization is active. So lets start with Germany.
