Dutch government agencies must be able to receive and process e-invoices by April 18th 2019, but what is an e-invoice? An e-invoice is an xml file that sends a standardized set of invoice data from one financial administration to another. This set of data is set up in such a way that all financial administrations with an e-invoice option can process this automatically.
The Dutch central government can handle e-invoices since January 2017 and since then, more and more provinces, municipalities and public water authorities are able to receive and process e-invoices. The underlying objective for each supplier (to the governmental agencies) is to do business in an easy, accurate and cost-efficient manner. Not only in the Netherlands, but also in the rest of Europe.
The Simplerinvoicing system takes a large share in making this goal possible. Simplerinvoicing is laying the foundation for an (inter)national e-invoice infrastructure using the PEPPOL transport network.
The Simplerinvoicing system consists of 40 participants who ensure that a total of more than 12,000 companies in the Netherlands can e-invoice from and to each other from their ERP or business system. As a PEPPOL autority, the Simplerinvoicing foundation monitors the security and reliability of their framework and, as a management organization, also plays a major role in the (further) development of standards, guiding prospective participants and facilitating board meetings.
