e-invoicing deployment and implementation


according to the
European e-invoicing multi- stakeholders Forum e-invoicing is:
The issuing and receipt of VAT compliant invoices in an electronic format. According to Article 217 of VAT Directive No. 2010/45/EU, an electronic invoice is ... "an invoice that contains the information required in the Directive, and which has been issued and received in any electronic format.”

And an e-Invoice is
a document or dataset that can be considered an invoice under Council Directive 2006/112/EC as modified by 2010/45/EU and which has been issued and received in any electronic format."
a) Structured Invoice
Creation of a structured invoice document consists of the compilation of the required data into an agreed e-invoice message in electronic form with a known structure, format and content such as is the case with EDI and XML messages. This means that contrary to the case with a paper document, where the receiver may well be unfamiliar with the format, with a structured invoice message the format is pre-defined and known to the parties involved.
b) Unstructured Invoice
Unstructured refers to any data that has no identifiable structure. For example, images, videos, email, documents and text are all considered to be unstructured data within a dataset. While each individual document may contain its own specific structure or formatting that based on the software program used to create the data, unstructured data may also be considered “loosely structured data” because the data sources do have a structure but all data within a dataset will not contain the same structure.

e-invoicing Benefits have been widely elaborated and proven in the last years (http://www.billentis.com/ or  http://www.einvoicingbasics.co.uk/), but still the market penetration in Europe except the Scandinavian countries lies way below 40% for B2B/G invoices (Bruno Koch, Billentis, e-invoicing/ e-billing report 2015). The change management from traditional invoicing to electronic invoicing for each company needs time and effort, but benefits include sales-purchasing cycle optimisation through IT, reduced chances of fraud and meeting corporate green objectives. Most companies, who would like to start, gaining the benefits of e-invoicing, don’t have the expertise on how to manage such a project…

Experience has shown that many companies that have started to implement e-invoicing projects – either on the accounts payable or the accounts receivable side- have a very quick response and onboarding rate at the beginning but then face delays in onboarding the critical mass of their suppliers or customers.
