European Multi Stakeholder Forum on Electronic Invoicing

The Forum has been set up by the Commission and brings together key actors from the private and public sector of all Member States. It provides a unique platform to exchange experiences and best practices which can pave the way to the broad-scale adoption of e-invoicing at both national and EU level.

The Forum will monitor the uptake of e-invoicing in all Member States. It should also help the Commission in identifying further measures to facilitate the mass adoption of e-invoicing across borders.
First recommendations are expected to be presented and discussed in the first half of 2012.
