Directive on Electronic Invoicing in Public Procurement

The EU Directive for Electronic Invoicing in Public Procurement came into effect 16 April 2014 and is to be implemented into national law by amendment to the State Members legislation no later than 27 November 2018.

The Directive requires contracting authorities to be able to receive eInvoices and make payment electronically for all contracts regulated under the EU Procurement Directives. However, while the acceptance of eInvoices by all contracting authorities is mandatory, the exchange of invoices in other formats will still be allowed if both the contracting authority and supplier agree.

A formal 12 week consultation with stakeholders will take place by end 2017.
