eInvoicing is Connecting Europe

Today is a key milestone for electronic invoicing in Europe. From now on, European public administrations should be able to process eInvoices in the European Standard!

You stand to benefit from the faster and more efficient processing of eInvoices. eInvoicing brings great savings to European public administrations and to businesses. An estimated € 920 million in savings has already been recorded between 2015-2017 through eInvoicing alone.

This was possible thanks to efforts of the European Commission, the European Committee for Standardisation (CEN) and the eInvoicing stakeholder community, who crafted together a new free-for-use European Standard on eInvoicing. 

Road ahead

However, our journey does not end here. We need to carry on this fantastic work to ensure that all public entities - including sub-central authorities - are processing the European standard correctly.

The Commission’s Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) eInvoicing Building Block will continue to help European countries by offering on-site eInvoicing Trainings and Workshops; supporting webinars; a User Community hosting online discussions and a dedicated Conformance Testing Service.

In addition, it will be possible to apply for INEA grants until 2020.
