The deadline has been set. Legislators have decided that, from 2018, public institutions must be able to accept and process electronic invoices. MACH AG in Lübeck and Bundesdruckerei (Germany’s state-owned print shop) in Berlin see that as reason enough to put their heads together and focus on making e-invoicing available to public institutions as quickly as possible. The two partners, who are each exhibiting at their own stands have put something very special together for CeBIT 2016 in Hannover. They will reveal precisely what their collaboration entails on a joint tour on 16 March. Ivo Moszynski from Bundesdruckerei will set the ball rolling by showing how various formats can be transformed into e-invoices before handing over to Jakub Buraczewski from MACH AG, who will explain the electronic processing involved.
The workflow runs largely as follows: Bundesdruckerei creates a central portal that can be used to send or receive electronic invoices at the click of a mouse, regardless of their format. If required, it will also take over the preparation of paper invoices, scans and PDF documents. Ultimately, only structured data is sent to the e-invoicing software of MACH AG, where it is automatically incorporated into the financial system. As a result, invoice data can be processed securely, quickly and on a seamless, electronic basis. Practical joint tests have already shown that the automation and recognition of invoice data by Bundesdruckerei, its transfer to MACH financial management systems and its expert, technical processing really work.
