e-Invoicing Directive

A proposal for a directive on the use of electronic invoices in public sector contracts

At the end of June 2013, the EC submitted a proposal for a directive on the use of electronic invoices in public sector contracts.

The Directive aims to make mandatory provision for the use and acceptance of electronic invoices (e-invoices) in public sector contracts and at the same time develop boundary conditions for the interoperability of e-invoices.
