eInvoicing in Slovenia
The Law on the provision of payment services to budget users mandates the use of eInvoices in billing for public procurement. The use of eInvoices is fully applied in the public sector (B2G). The law further mandates the use of the Public Payments’ Administration of the Republic of Slovenia (PPA) eInvoicing system and details its tasks.
eInvoicing platform and eInvoicing management solutions
In Slovenia, it is mandatory that eInvoices in B2G are sent through the PPA eInvoicing system. eInvoices can be submitted by economic operators through different channels (websevices, webportal, etc.) and by using different market solutions. Bizbox and Bankart Banks Network are the main eInvoicing solution providers used by public entities and economic operators in Slovenia.
Approach for receiving and processing eInvoices
In Slovenia, eInvoices to the federal government must be submitted using the central government platform, i.e. the Business Service Portal (USP) which is operated by the Federal Computing Centre (BRZ). The BRZ, as the IT service provider and partner of the Federal Ministry of Finance, provides the IT solution for the eInvoice system. Economic operators have to be registered on that platform which is also the identity provider.
In Slovenia, economic operators send all eInvoices to the PPA through its central eInvoicing system (PPA eInvoicing system). Economic operators can submit eInvoices:
- Manually via the Web portal PPA eInvoicing (UJP eRačun). This service is provided to small businesses that can directly submit up to 60 eInvoices per year;
- Automatically via eInvoicing solution providers that have successfully obtained certification from the PPA eInvoicing system and have established a direct link with it. This method for sending eInvoices is recommended for medium and large-sized enterprises due to the process automation and the data integration with the companies’ in-house management systems;
- Automatically through Bankart eInvoicing solutions provided by banks participating in the eInvoicing interbank exchange in Slovenia. It is used in the eInvoicing interbank exchange with the PPA. The Bankart allows the participating banks and the PPA to submit and receive electronic invoices to and from their clients using their own solutions (e.g. electronic banking services).
