Concretely: From 27.11. they have to offer digital invoices e.B. via XRechnung. This is quick and easy to implement and opens up lucrative opportunities. Also in the B2B and B2C sectors.
One format has already prevailed: XRechnung. Most companies, large or small, work with it. If you work or want to work for the federal government or authorities, you can also use any other CEN-compliant format, e.B. ZUGFeRD.
