Navigating the global tax compliance landscape successfully is complex and resource-intensive. Every country has a specific and constantly evolving set of legislated e-invoicing requirements.
Non-compliance, intentional or not, can result in significant financial penalties, business disruption, and reputational damage.
As from 2023 new legal e-ordering requirements for public authorities and institutions will become applicable.
As a consequence suppliers will be required to be able to receive e-orders and have e-catalogs (which will comply with the new Peppol standard) on the covered purchasing categories. A report regarding these requirements is scheduled to be sent out for consultation before the Summer holidays.
The European Union (EU) VAT Directive 55 obliges all EU public authorities to receive invoices electronically, or at least to have a defined for how they will do so, by 27 November 2018.
