In times of digitization, automated and digitized billing processes have become indispensable. The changeover to electronic invoicing enables costs to be saved by up to 80% compared to paper invoices. In addition, resources such as personnel, time and raw materials can be saved and errors minimized.
On 01.07.2011, the Federal Ministry of Finance decided that the electronic invoice will be put on an equal footing with the paper invoice. Since then, an e-invoice can also be sent by e-mail and does not necessarily have to be signed.
Every year there are new requirements in various countries regarding e-Invoicing, as more and more countries are switching to e-Invoicing in the public sector and digitising their invoicing processes.
