What eInvoicing is
eInvoicing is a government initiative designed to make exchanging invoices and doing business more efficient.
eInvoicing uses the Peppol network
eInvoices are sent between accounting systems via Peppol’s secure global public network rather than email.
Government committed to eInvoicing
Some government agencies will pay eligible eInvoices within five days, or pay interest on any late payments.
Bills automatically prepopulated
eInvoicing does away with manual entry of bills, reduces errors and delays in getting paid, and lowers costs.
Free registration for eInvoicing
Register with the Peppol network from within Xero using your ABN to start receiving eInvoices.
