e-Invoicing in Serbia

In Serbia, preparations for e-invoicing have been underway since 2019. The original implementation date was postponed from 1st January 2022 to 1st May 2022. 

The structure of the e-invoicing solution

An electronic invoice system has been planned and developed to enable the mandatory implementation. This solution is managed by a central information intermediary known as the eFaktura Government Platform. Private sector entities may accesses and use it to:

  • Issue
  • Send
  • Receive
  • Store electronic invoices

The valid invoice format is XML.

Invoices to the tax authorities can be sent in two different ways:

  • Directly to the eFaktura Government Platform
  • Through an Information Intermediary*

*One of the conditions to become an Information Intermediary is having a company registered in Serbia.

The Register of Information Intermediaries will be kept by the Central Information Intermediary. At the moment, the Register does not contain any data and therefore has not been published.

Process presentation

In B2G relations, when status changes are detected these are forwarded using invoice response messages. In our solution, the following status changes are mapped to invoice responses as shown below:

Storage of electronic invoices

An electronic invoice issued and received by a private sector entity must be kept for 10 years from the end of the year in which the electronic invoice was issued.

Electronic invoices issued and received by a private sector entity are stored in an electronic invoice system or in an Information Intermediary system, such Intermediary being a private sector entity engaged in safekeeping operations.

The authenticity of the origin and the integrity of the content of the electronic invoice is ensured by issuing it in the format prescribed by Serbian Law, as well as by keeping the document in a format suitable for electronic storage.
