So, what is e-invoicing?
E-invoicing is a way for businesses to electronically exchange invoices between accounting software systems, without manual data entry.
Why is it being introduced?
With the introduction of e-invoicing, businesses will no longer need to generate PDF or paper invoices.
How does it work?
Once connected to the same e-invoicing network (Peppol), you can start using accounting software like Xero to send and receive e-invoices.
