  • Trans-Tasman e-invoicing agreement

    In March 2018, the Prime Minister of Australia and the Prime Minister of New Zealand agreed to take practical action on adopting common approaches to e-invoicing as a means to progress the Single Economic Market agenda. This agreement was formalised on 25 October 2018 by signing an international arrangement.

    This initiative will build on the work of Australia’s Digital Business Council and the ATO in developing a framework of standards and guidelines for e-invoicing based on international standards. These open standards will allow the New Zealand and Australian business systems to ‘speak’ to each other, resulting in fewer errors during a business transaction.

    A federal level steering committee and the trans-Tasman e-invoicing working group were established to lead the way in standardising e-invoicing across government and the business sector in Australia and New Zealand.

    The working group is a representative group of federal and state government agencies in Australia and New Zealand.
