What is an e-invoice?
An e-invoice, also known as electronic invoice or e-invoice, is a digital file formatted according to set standards. It is often mistakenly thought that e-invoicing is sending an invoice electronically in pdf format, for example. This is not the case: e-invoicing goes a step further.
The e-invoice is formatted in UBL (Universal Business Language) and is based on XML. The latter is the best known and most widely used standard for structuring documents. An e-invoice, for this reason also called UBL invoice, can be read directly by most financial software. This no longer requires manual input. An e-invoice must meet the same legal requirements as the 'normal' invoice.
