e-Invoicing and e-Archiving

25 Sep 2005

Due to the economic situation in 2003, quite a few companies are looking for ways to drive down costs and achieve extra efficiencies. In many cases, one way to realise this two-fold goal is to reduce the piles of paper by issuing (and accepting) electronic invoices and archiving them in electronic format as studies have shown that companies can save up to 75% of their invoicing cost by switching to electronic invoicing.

The evolution in this area is mainly controlled by the tax rules of the game (in particular the VAT rules). Since, to date, no harmonised legal framework for e-invoicing (and e-archiving of invoices) has been established, many companies hesitated to switch to e-invoicing (and e-archiving). The EU Directive of 20 December 2001 has changed the situation. When, by 1 January 2004, the Directive will be transposed into the internal law of the 15 Member States (and by 1 May 2004 in the candidate Member States), some harmonised framework will be available for companies in this area. This book co-authored by Ine Lejeune and Axel Smits, Marc Joostens and Jean-Marc Cambien with the help of the VAT network provides the reader with a first insight in e-invoicing and e-archiving.
