What is e-Invoicing?

As defined by the Australian Taxation Office, Electronic invoicing (or e-invoicing) is the automated exchange of invoice information directly between a buyer’s and supplier’s accounting systems.

With e-invoicing there will no longer be a need for businesses to generate paper-based or PDF invoices that must be printed, posted or emailed. Buyers will no longer need to manually enter or scan these into their accounting system.

In Australia and New Zealand, the common e-invoicing standard is Peppol (Pan-European Public Procurement On-Line), which is an internationally established standard. The Peppol standard allows invoice exchange between different accounting systems.
