E-invoicing to public administrations in France

As of January 1, 2017, e-invoicing to French public administrations becomes mandatory for companies over 5,000 employees. This new mandate has been established according the EU Directive on e-invoicing and public procurement [2014/55/EU] which gives countries the possibility to implement local legislation requiring vendors to send e-invoices to public administrations. The EU’s goal is to make e-invoicing the predominant invoicing method in Europe by 2020.

Esker’s Accounts Receivable automation solution is capable of processing invoices, as well as communicate with Chorus Pro, the French administration’s platform.

New requirements for invoicing to public administrations

Following the April 2014 directive on e-invoicing and public procurement, all vendors need to send e-invoices to public authorities in all European countries by 2020. If you work with public administrations in Spain, Italy or France, or plan to do so, it is crucial that the following dates for e-invoice compliance be respected:

  • Spain: As of January 2015, all invoices sent to the public sector must be e-invoices.
  • Italy: As of March 2015, all invoices sent to the public sector must be e-invoices.
  • France: Since January 1, 2012, suppliers have had the option of sending e-invoices to government ministries. The new directive eliminates this choice for the public sector (including local authorities and public institutions), making e-invoicing mandatory by 2017 for large accounts and 2020 for small to mid-sized businesses.

Esker can help anticipate this move, secure compliance and provide interoperability with all e-invoicing systems.
