  • eInvoicing for businesses

    eInvoicing benefits every business by simplifying and automating the exchange and processing of invoices.

    Firstly, contact your software provider to find out:

    • if your software is eInvoicing-ready
    • how and when they can help
    • what you need to do.

    You may need to update your existing software or add an extra service.

    • how many invoices you send and receive, and how often
    • how you send, receive and process invoices and if you use purchase orders
    • identifying your top suppliers and buyers (by number of invoices)
    • if you use software and scanning tools to manage your accounts payable and receivable.

    • Progressively onboard your trading partners focussing on those with most benefit to your organisation, for example, high-volume suppliers or high error rate invoices.
    • Transition as many of your trade partners to the eInvoicing channel to maximise your benefits.
