How to manage Peppol e-invoicing?

At this time, there is no law in the US recommending or mandating the use of electronic invoicing. In spite of this, a pilot test has been carried out to analyze the implementation, which has been a success. All indications are that legislation may soon be introduced to move in this direction. In any case, companies that want to digitalize these processes can use the electronic invoice through Peppol.


Electronic invoice 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 the US, the recent pilot test was carried out using the UBL format. This is a format that is being implemented in the EU and other Asian countries.

Everything seems to indicate that the implementation of electronic invoicing in the United States will be carried out with the use of this format.

What is UBL format?

Routing codes: Peppol ID

In electronic 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 electronic invoices in UBL format, they must contain the Peppol Id, which is an identifier that allows routing the invoice to the correct recipient. This identifier is used in the Peppol network, which we will talk about later.

Peppol network as a method of sending e-invoices

Sending an electronic invoice is not as easy as sending it via email.

The Peppol network is an open, international document exchange network created in Europe. The electronic invoice pilot test in the US has been developed through this network. Given the success of this test, everything indicates that it will be the network chosen to develop the new electronic invoice exchange regulations in the country.

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

What is Peppol?

Valid company ID

It is important to have the recipient’s identifier in order to issue the electronic invoice.

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

In addition, the Peppol network only accepts a few specific identifiers accepted by the environment, so it is necessary to know this information about your customer.
