How to send business to government e-invoicing in Australia?

Currently, the Australian central government recommends and encourages companies to use e-invoicing through the Peppol network. Learn how to proceed in a simple and free way.

Problem

B2G e-invoicing in Australia is set up in UBL format

Electronic invoicing is not a simple PDF, it is an invoice in a structured electronic format and, many times, this format may be different depending on the recipient.

In Australia, e-invoicing is being implemented through the Peppol network and its standards. As a consequence, companies must generate and send electronic invoices in UBL format, which is the format used in this international network.

What is UBL format?

Routing codes: Peppol ID

In e-invoicing processes, most documents must contain routing codes. These codes are used to redirect the invoice and allow its correct processing.

In the case of e-invoicing in AU and the transmission of documents through Peppol, these must contain the Peppol ID. It is mandatory and necessary to be able to issue the invoice through this environment.

Valid identifier: ABN

It is important to have the recipient’s identifier (ABN) in order to issue the e-invoice.

Each receiver has a different identifier and all electronic invoices must contain this information.

Peppol network as a method of sending electronic invoices

Sending an electronic invoice to the Australian government is not as easy as sending it via email.

The implementation of e-invoicing in Australia has been done through the Peppol network. This is an international document exchange network, which allows you to connect with other companies for the transmission of documents.

To access the Peppol environment, it is necessary to register with a certified Peppol Access Point.
