Are you tired of chasing invoices, correcting invoice errors and avoiding email scams? Is this impacting your business cashflow?

Peppol e-invoicing is a faster, safer way to exchange digital invoices. It will save you time and money.

What is e-invoicing?


E-invoicing (or electronic invoicing) is a way to digitally exchange invoices through software that is connected to the Peppol network. E-invoices are not PDF invoices that need to be printed, posted or emailed.

E-invoicing allows you to send and receive invoices digitally with other businesses such as your suppliers, contractors or government. It does not apply to business to consumer transactions.

How Peppol e-invoicing works

What makes e-invoicing possible is the safe and secure international Peppol network that allows invoice data to be exchanged between different software or systems. To start e-invoicing, your software needs to be connected to the Peppol network. Many small business accounting software providers already offer Peppol e-invoicing options.

It doesn't matter which software you and your business partners use to invoice, as long as you're both connected to the Peppol network.
