Italy plans to make e-invoicing mandatory per 1st of January 2019 (for all local B2B and B2C supplies of goods and services, between established or VAT-registered parties) .

E-invoices will have to be issued through the ‘Sistema di Intercambio’ system (‘SdI’). This is the platform currently used to transmit e-invoices to public bodies. It will allow the Italian Revenue Agency to automatically collect details of e-invoices, before it provides the e-invoice to your customer. This has to be done in the ‘Fattura PA’ XML format.

This requirement will hit both your AR and AP processes, as you will send and receive invoices in XML format in Italy.

We are currently building a docudraft template in the Fattura PA’ XML format and would welcome a few other ADERANT clients with offices in Italy to join the party.

Get in touch if this is of interest!
