About CEF eInvoicing

Financed by the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF), the purpose of the CEF eInvoicing building block is to promote the uptake and accelerate the use of eInvoicing respecting the Directive 2014/55/EU on electronic invoicing in public procurement and the European standard on eInvoicing (due to be published in 2017), amongst both public and private entities established in the EU, as well as in participating EEA countries. The benefits to both users and the wider economy of adopting eInvoicing are reduced risks, reduced costs and improved market.

The CEF eInvoicing building block serves to support public administrations in complying with the aforementioned eInvoicing Directive, and helps solution providers adapt their services accordingly. To do so, CEF eInvoicing makes the following services available:

About the CEF building blocks

The CEF building blocks provide basic services which can be reused to enable more complex digital public services offered to citizens, businesses and public administration. They provide reusable tools and services helping to underpin the Digital Single Market, that aims to remove digital regulatory barriers, contributing as much as EUR 415 billion per year to the European economy. The CEF Digital Portal is the home of the CEF building blocks (eIDeDeliveryeInvoicingeSignature and eTranslation). It is the one-stop-shop for information about the building blocks. The portal provides access to tools, services and software that facilitates the deployment of eID to access digital public services across borders.
