In times of digitalization, automated and digitized invoicing processes have become indispensable. The switch to electronic invoicing enables costs to be cut 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 July 1, 2011, the Federal Ministry of Finance decided that electronic invoicing will be put on an equal footing with paper invoices. Since then, an e-invoice can also be sent by email and does not necessarily have to be signed.
Every year there are new requirements in different countries regarding e-invoicing, as more and more countries in the public sector switch to e-invoicing and digitize their invoice processes.
