We have collected only the low hanging fruit of e-Invoicing

lowhangingfruit

The interoperability in question might be eclipsed soon by the potential of e-Invoicing in term of value creation in the whole financial chain. An attempt to harvest all the significant cost savings and better procurement practices may require a deeper plunge into processes, chasing the data quality, trying to figure the great potential of big data. Something beyond any conventional wisdom that may represent an exhausting effort to overcome received ideas. Quoting Bruno KOCH – BILLENTIS “One major reason is the poor data quality in invoices. Inaccurate information on B2B invoices is a major reason for payment delays. Reducing the proportion of exception handlings might increasingly become a priority. E-Invoicing is an excellent vehicle to combat this quality problem »

That is precisely the purpose of the Exchange Summit on e-Invoicing that will take place 5-6 October 2015 in Barcelona to acquire in-depth information about recent developments and future trends in e-Invoicing. Participants will benefit from a number of keynote speeches, panels and round tables covering interoperability and public procurement and discussions with global thought leaders. Open PEPPOL will raise awareness on how contracting authorities may leverage the CEF “Connecting Europe Facility “program funding for implementing e-Invoicing and e-Delivery in B2G.

e-Invoicing to public sector on the right track in France

tour eiffel By making e-Invoicing mandatory to public sector by 2020, the process of adoption to businesses is now right on track in France.

In spite of a European election that has turned into a political settling of scores, France confirm every day its alignment on the European positions and makes echo to the e-Invoicing Directive. Along with the simplification law decided under Hollande Presidency and voted by the French parliament in late 2013, e-Invoicing to public sector is probably the most notable provision among several measures that aims to “facilitate the life” of the SME’s like accelerating payments.

The legislative process is now well engaged with a law enforcement by the State Council expected by the end of june. The concertation process has fulfilled all expectations with the agreement of the French association of the mayors that represents local authorities among a total of 78 000 public bodies. With an estimated volume of 95 millions invoices a year for the whole public sector (compared to the 5 millions for the state only) figures are huge !

The mission has been assigned to AIFE, the IT agency of the Ministry of finances in charge of CHORUS (the French State accounting system and invoicing platform) with mandate to secure the deployment, presumably through a single point of contact that would serve as an interchange platform between economic operators, service providers and public authorities.
Considering the magnitude of this project, an incremental entry into force is contemplated every year starting with large companies the 1st January 2017 and ending with the very small enterprises the 1st of January 2020.
