Electronic Invoicing is becoming mandatory in 2025 – HÜNGSBERG is here to assist!

As of January 1st, 2025, electronic invoicing is to become a general requirement for B2B companies. However, recognizing the challenges and efforts related to this shift, legislators have introduced a temporary easing of regulations spanning from 2025 to 2027. Paper and PDF invoices remain permissible until the end of 2026, provided the recipient agrees to this form of invoice. Additionally, in 2027, the previous year’s turnover of the invoice issuer must not exceed 800,000 euros.

From 2028 onwards, all B2B companies must comply with electronic invoicing standards. Act promptly and align your business processes with electronic invoicing requirements together with HÜNGSBERG!

Electronic invoices serve as a digital catalyst for your supply chain

Electronic invoicing, known as E-invoicing, provides invoice details in a structured, machine-readable format, unlike traditional paper invoices or PDFs. This allows for secure, real-time electronic transmission and reception of invoices. Invoice issuers can utilize the XInvoice standard or the ZUGFeRD invoice format for E-invoice submissions. XRechnung relies on a structured XML dataset and is predominantly used in the public sector, while the ZUGFeRD invoice integrates a PDF document into a structured XML file. Various other E-invoice formats are generally compatible with meeting the aforementioned requirements.

Electronic invoicing represents a significant step in the digital transformation of businesses, offering an efficient and eco-friendly alternative to conventional billing methods.

Benefits of implementing E-invoicing

There are numerous compelling reasons for B2B companies to embrace electronic invoicing (E-invoicing). It is digital, secure, and eco-friendly, and also enhances the efficiency, transparency, and traceability of your invoicing procedures. This benefits both invoice issuers and recipients alike.

By adopting E-invoicing, B2B enterprises can, amongst other things, accomplish the following:

  • Streamline invoice management, reducing administrative overhead
  • Monitor the status of E-invoices in real time
  • Utilize time and resources more effectively
  • Enhance financial planning and cash flow management
  • Optimize business processes

Ensure a timely transition of your digital processes to E-invoicing with HÜNGSBERG as your electronic invoicing provider. We will save you time and resources and help you avoid any potential penalties following the mandatory introduction of electronic invoicing as of January 1st, 2025.
