The following applies to the Federal Administration: The Regulation on Electronic Invoicing (E-RechV) essentially stipulates that electronic invoices must be sent to all invoice recipients who are authorities as defined by Section 159 (1)(1-5) of the Act against Restraints of Competition (GWB) from 27 November 2020. This therefore concerns the highest federal authorities, the Federal Government’s constitutional bodies, and the direct and indirect Federal Administration authorities (so-called sub-central public contracting authorities). You will usually receive relevant information for the exchange of electronic invoices from your contracting authority.
The list below also provides an overview of the Federal Administration authorities and companies that are accepting electronic invoices via the Federal Government’s platforms. The same requirements for the transmission of invoices apply to all of these invoice recipients. The overview below distinguishes between the ZRE and OZG-RE invoice submission platforms and the recipient Federal Administration authorities and institutions. The lists will be expanded on a continual basis. At the moment the documents are only available in German language.
If you are unsure, contact your contracting authority and ask for more information about electronic invoicing.
