How to send Peppol international invoices?

Current European regulations require public administration suppliers to use electronic invoicing in order to invoice the goods or services provided. In addition, this is also gradually happening for transactions between private companies.


Electronic invoice regulations in Europe

E-invoicing in Europe is mandatory in many cases, but this can be different depending on the type of recipient (public or private) and the regulations of the country. For example, in Italy all companies must be able to receive electronic invoices, but there are other countries such as Spain, France, Belgium, Sweden or Germany, where the use of electronic invoicing is only mandatory when exchanging documents with public entities.

European countries are not the only ones implementing these regulations, since countries such as Australia, New Zealand, Singapore or Japan are already moving towards the use of electronic invoicing and in some cases its use is already a recommendation.

Different electronic invoicing formats depending on the receiving country

The structured format of the electronic invoice in Europe may be different in each country. There are also similar formats but with different specifications, depending on the country or recipient. The most widely used electronic invoice format is UBL, used in countries such as Belgium, Sweden, Germany (XRechnung), Croatia and many others. In these cases, this format must comply with the specifications of each country.

Other countries like for example Spain, France or Portugal have specific formats.

Multiple networks for sending el electronic invoices to EU countries

Each recipient can request the sending of the electronic invoice through the network specified in their country’s regulations. Even in the same country, there may be several networks depending on the region where the receiver is located. One of the most used networks is Peppol, through which many European public entities, such as Belgium and Sweden, receive their services.

Other countries, such as Spain, France and Porgutal use other networks.

Routing codes and other required data

To send an electronic invoice to Europe, it must contain certain essential information in order to be recognized as a valid invoice (recipient identifier, taxes, lines, etc). In addition, the e-invoice may need to contain certain routing codes, which ensure that the invoice reaches the recipient and which may vary depending on the recipient and/or the country to which it belongs. An example is the Peppol Id (Peppol network).

It is not always that easy, as other countries may use other types of routing codes.
