  • E-invoicing

    Invoices can be sent and received in number of ways – for example, by paper, email, portable document format (PDF), or electronic invoicing.

    When we say electronic invoicing (or e-invoicing), we mean the automated direct exchange transmission of invoices between software systems of the buyer and supplier.

    E-invoicing removes the need to create paper-based or PDF invoices, scan, post or email them, and manually enter them. There are many benefits of e-invoicing, for example, it's a more efficient method and helps reduce invoices being lost or delayed.

    E-invoices can be sent directly to a customer’s software if both systems are using the same standards, even if the buyer and supplier are using different software. In Australia, we are working with the software industry to use the Pan-European Public Procurement On-Line (PEPPOL) standard which is internationally established.
