What is it all about?
e-Invoicing (sometimes known as electronic invoicing) is the automated exchange of standardised structured invoice data directly between senders and receivers software across a highly secure, governed network. The use of structured data allows it to be interpreted by any invoicing software enabled for e-invoicing, dramatically increasing the accuracy and security of the process and at the same time lowering the cost.

Peppol was created by OpenPEPPOL in 2008 to set the standard for e-Invoicing and other e-Documents. The Peppol framework outlines the Peppol UBL (Universal Business Language) format for these documents and it governs the Access Point network. This framework is currently used in over 34 countries including Australia, New Zealand and many countries throughout Europe and Asia. In 2019 the Australia Taxation Office (ATO) was appointed the country authority for Peppol in Australia and the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) took that role in New Zealand. Working closely together these agencies govern the administration of the network and the accreditation of Access Points in Australia and New Zealand.
In the 4 corner model, Access Points send and receive business documents between organisations. Think of them like a post office box, the sender’s software sends the invoice to their Access Point (corner two) and the receiver’s software then collects it from their Access Point (corner three). To be a part of the Peppol e-Invoicing Network, organisations need to go through an extensive accreditation process to become an accredited Access Point. Included in this process are stringent certifications, meeting the highest security and interoperability requirements. This ensures that the Access Points, not only have the capabilities to function within the network, but also the trust and reliability to maintain a stable network free of fraud. The country authorities are responsible for the governance pf the network to ensure it remains secure.
WHY e-invoicing? Benefits
The ability to send from software (accounting platform) to software removes the need for creating paper-based or PDF invoices, minimising manual data entry, reducing errors allowing you to boost your processing time significantly. In the simplest terms, e-Invoicing allows the seller to create and send an invoice from their software, through the e-Invoicing network straight into the buyer’s software. But what other benefits are there?
