Australia is on the Road to E-invoicing

In Australia B2B and B2G e-invoicing is still voluntary in terms of sending such documents. One of the obligation cencerning transaction with public entities is that they must be able handle the receipt of e-invoices when the supplier chooses to send them this way.

Implementation timeline

Regarding B2B transactions, The Australian Government intends to make e-invoicing mandatory in several phases based on company size. Three phases were proposed:

  • From July 1, 2023, companies could request large trading partners to send their invoices electronically over the PEPPOL network. That means large companies would be obligated as of that date to be able to send electronic invoices in the PEPPOL format upon request.
  • From July 1, 2024, companies could request medium-sized trading partners to send their invoices electronically over the PEPPOL network. That means medium-sized companies would be obligated as of that date to be able to send electronic invoices in the PEPPOL format upon request.
  • From July 1, 2025, all companies would be obligated to exchange electronic invoices in the PEPPOL format.
