Peppol: The Future of Invoicing with Government

Starting in 2024, Peppol will become the standard for e-invoicing between businesses and the government. Are you not using Peppol by then? Then you can’t do business with the government. But what does this mean for your organization? In this blog we dive deeper into what Peppol is, why it’s important, and how Onetrail can help your organization with this transition.

What is Peppol?

Peppol (Pan-European Public Procurement OnLine) is the international standard for e-invoicing and e-ordering. In the past, differences in invoicing protocols between countries and even between different government entities within the same country could lead to delays and complications.

The idea behind Peppol originated in Europe with the vision of making cross-border public procurement easier and more efficient. The goal was to create a common standard that would ensure interoperability between different procurement systems in European countries. This would not only reduce the administrative burden for companies, but also increase market access for suppliers.

Meanwhile, dozens of countries worldwide – including outside the EU – have chosen Peppol as the standard. Its use is also becoming mandatory in more and more countries – including the Netherlands from 2024 – in order to do business with the government.

Key features and benefits of Peppol

  1. Standardized Communication: Peppol provides a unified way of communicating between different procurement systems. This means companies only need to connect to the Peppol network once to access all connected entities.
  2. Safety and Reliability: By using advanced security protocols, Peppol ensures the integrity and confidentiality of data exchanged.
  3. Cost savings: By eliminating paper invoices and reducing manual processes, companies can save significantly on their administrative costs.
  4. Real-time Processing: Faster processing times mean faster payments and improved cash flow for businesses.
