Electronic invoicing

Electronic invoicing - e-Invoicing - is the electronic transfer of invoicing information (billing and payment) between suppliers and buyers of goods and services.

Part 2 of these Regulations makes amendments to the principal Regulations to implement Council Directive 2001/115/EC (OJ L015,17.01.02 p.24) - the ‘E-Invoicing Directive’. This requires electronic invoices to be formatted in a prescribed manner, including information requirements and use of electronic signatures.
