What is E-Invoicing?


E-invoicing or Electronic Invoicing is a kind of electronic billing. It is used to monitor transactions between one another and to ensure the terms of their trade agreement.

The EU acknowledges an electronic invoice as equivalent to any other invoice when it’s issued and received in electronic format. This recognition extends to documents exchanged through various means, such as EDI, XML, or CSV files.

As companies advance into the digital era, many are switching to electronic invoicing services to automate their accounts payable departments. The 2012 Global E-Invoicing study illustrated the rate at which electronic invoicing is growing. According to the study, 73% of respondents used E-invoicing to an extent in 2012, a 14% increase from 2011. Supplier resistance to E-invoicing has decreased from 46% in 2011 to 26% in 2012.

Apart from gaining cost and time savings by removing the paper and manual processing e-invoicing provides flexibility to meet the transactional needs of both supplier and customer in an end-to-end way.
