The e-invoice obligation for
Germany is coming!
CTC in Germany
An obligation to issue invoices electronically is planned for the B2B sector in Germany. When implementing this project, attention will also be paid to the EU requirement "ViDA - VAT in the Digital Age":
The Federal Ministry of Finance (Bundesministerium der Finanzen - BMF) informed the associations in a letter dated 17.04.2023 of the following proposal to discuss: It is planned to introduce the mandatory use of electronic invoices (e-invoicing) for domestic B2B transactions in Germany. This would be equivalent to mandatory e-invoicing in Germany for the B2B sector.
With this proposal, the BMF is pursuing the goal set out in the coalition agreement of the German government to combat VAT fraud in Germany and to introduce an electronic reporting system for the creation, verification and forwarding of invoices nationwide as quickly as possible.
You can find out how to prepare for the topic today in one of our web conferences. You can find them below.
CTC in the EU
At the latest since the publication of the EU Commission's draft directive on the introduction of a cross-border transactional reporting system in the European Union from 2028 (draft directive on "VAT in the Digital Age - ViDA", published on 08.12.2022), the topic of electronic invoicing (e-invoicing) has been on everyone's lips: such a reporting system is based on the mandatory issuing of e-invoices.
Many EU member states are intensively dealing with the topic and have already published first drafts or presented their solution. This is a new challenge for companies in the European Union, as the different countries have different solutions in the area of B2G as well as B2B.
