How to create an XRechnung?

What is XRechnung?

XRechnung is an e-invoice format that is mandatory for invoicing most German government administrations. It ensures a uniform exchange of invoices between the invoicing company and the respective administrative body.
The baseline for XRechnung is provided by the European standard EN16931, which prescribes a clear structure of the invoice format. Thus, all relevant information of an invoice is transmitted to the recipient in a standardized way. The format consists of various data elements that are arranged in a defined structure and along business terms. These business terms include information such as the invoice issuer, the invoice recipient, the invoice date, the invoice number, the items and the total amount of the invoice.

The format XRechnung is now mandatory in many cases where companies invoice the German public administration. Other formats are often no longer accepted by the German government.

The introduction of the e-invoicing in Germany concept leads to a number of advantages:

With the e-invoicing format XRechnung, the processing becomes easier and errors are reduced. As a result, payments are processed quickly without long processing times. Thus, the supplier usually receives his money more quickly than with invoices that have to be checked and processed manually.
