SAP E-Invoice – Companies in Germany need software that supports the processing of e-invoices. This results from several factors that drive digital transformation and increased efficiency in everyday business.

First, the legal component plays a crucial role. From 2025, German companies will be obliged to create and receive e-invoices in accordance with EU Directive 2014/55/EU. The implementation of software solutions therefore becomes essential to meet the legal requirements.

Secondly, the use of e-invoices increases efficiency and reduces costs. Manual invoice processing is time-consuming and error-prone. Automated e-invoice processing systems minimize human error, speed up the invoicing process, and significantly reduce administrative costs.

Third, the software contributes to sustainability. The absence of paper reduces the ecological footprint and supports the sustainability goals of many companies.

Finally, the integration of e-invoicing software promotes the digitization and networking of business processes. This enables seamless collaboration with partners and suppliers, improves data quality, and provides valuable insights for strategic decisions. Overall, e-invoice processing will become indispensable for German companies in the coming years in order to remain competitive and legally compliant.


With MailCenter, you can easily create and receive electronic invoices in the system. All you have to do is add our extension to your SAP system and configure it briefly.

FAQ – MailCenter E-Invoice

An e-invoice (electronic invoice) is a digital invoice that is created, sent and received in a structured electronic format. It contains the same information as a paper invoice, but is transmitted and processed electronically to automate and streamline the exchange of invoice information.

An e-invoice is created in a structured data format, such as XML or EDIFACT, and sent to the recipient via electronic channels. The recipient can automatically read and process the invoice into their system. This process minimizes manual intervention, reduces errors, speeds up processing, and enables seamless integration with accounting and ERP systems.
