Since 27/11/2020, suppliers working as contractors in public procurement for the Federal Government and its authorities have been legally obliged to submit e-invoices. To ensure that implementation of the Federal Government’s Regulation on Electronic Invoicing occurs successfully and promptly, associations, as central economic disseminators, can offer their support and motivation to ensure that this implementation is as seamless as possible for the suppliers.
What can you do as an association to assist your members?
As a service for your association members, various information materials that you can use are listed below. These contain the key information about the introduction of e-invoicing for different purposes and target groups:
