Since 2010, Cyprus has had an optional electronic invoicing system, which states that the creation of electronic invoices is voluntary. All EU member states were required to implement this invoicing system into their local legislation by January 1, 2013. This ensures that companies can send electronic invoices to the government using European and international standards.
Different rules apply to central and sub-central government agencies. Receiving and processing compliant electronic invoices has been mandatory for central public authorities since April 18, 2019. The same applies to sub-central authorities since April 18, 2020.
