E-invoicing process description

The electronic invoice exchange model is based on the assumption that the supplier's ERP system generates an e-invoice and forwards it to the selected Access Point (AP), which checks the file (especially whether the company's NZ number is correct) and transfers the file via the Peppol network to the selected AP by the invoice recipient.
