Now without a digital signature
Simplification for electronic invoices
n order to help the acceptance and dissemination of the electronic mail, in particular the electronic invoices in the business everyday life to the breakthrough, the legislator has reduced the requirements (qualified electronic signature or transmission in the EDI procedure). The digital signature is no longer necessary. Since July 1, 2011, invoices can be sent electronically without having to use a digital signature.
The elimination of the electronic signature has simplified the creation and use of the electronic invoices for the biller and the recipient. Since then, the mailing of invoices has steadily increased. Of course, there are still customers who only accept paper invoices. Nevertheless, electronically sent invoices are on the rise and legally valid.
ZUGFeRD Initiative h2>
The forum electronic invoice Germany (FeRD) has developed a common overall format for electronic invoices. The format can be used for the exchange of invoices between companies, authorities and consumers. This enables the exchange of structured data between biller and bill-to party (“ZUGFeRD” format).
The ZUGFeRD invoice format allows invoice data to be transmitted in a structured manner in a PDF file. These are read out and processed without further steps.
The FeRD bill format was developed by companies in the automotive, retail, banking, software and public sectors.
It meets the requirements of international standardization. It can also be included and used in cross-border European and international billing.
Whether and to what extent the ZUGFeRD initiative can establish itself on the market is currently questionable. So far, the format exists only for invoices. An extension to other processes is discussed.
