Legal Compliance in EU E-invoicing: PEPPOL

In 2014, both the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union officially adopted E-invoicing Directive 2014/55/EU, which states that all European Public Administration entities will be obliged to receive and process STRUCTURED electronic invoices sent by their suppliers.

Compliance deadlines:

  • 18th April 2019 - European CENTRAL AND FEDERAL administration authorities
  • 18th April 2020 - European REGIONAL AND LOCAL administration authorities
