2C Solution signs the new partnership with INPOSIA. Towards international e-invoice.

We met INPOSIA during the Exchange Summit on European Electronic Invoice held in Vienna, Miami and Singapore a few months ago. INPOSIA was the main sponsor of the event which brought together the major European and International service providers to discuss the future of the European e-invoice.


A partnership for international e-invoicing

“Right from the start we found a lot of business synergies together thanks to our services.” says Davide Coletto, CEO of 2C Solution. INPOSIA sends and receives electronic invoices in around 60 countries worldwide: “The goal of our partnership is to integrate our storage, archiving and signature processes with their products.”

2C Solution is an OPEN PEPPOL and AGID accredited service provider, able to manage PEPPOL not only in Italy, but also in other countries. INPOSIA is an EDI service provider for electronic invoicing in 60 countries worldwide.

The partnership between 2C Solution and INPOSIA will give in a short time a complete service of electronic invoicing and document storage (archiving and storage of documents, with automatic signature processes).


In what direction is Europe pushing for electronic invoicing?

The Directive 2014/55/EU “Electronic Invoicing in Public Procurement” obliges from 18 April 2020 the administrations to receive electronic invoices compared to the European standard. This standard provides the XML UBL 2.1 format in accordance with the European technical standard EN 16931.

A first step towards European e-invoicing involving all public authorities in the Union on the basis of Community Directive No 55 of 16 April 2014 on e-invoicing in public procurement.


Requirements for electronic invoicing in public procurement

The mandatory minimum requirements that an e-invoice in public procurement must always include are:

  • process and invoice identifiers;
  • invoicing period;
  • information relating to the seller;
  • information relating to the buyer;
  • information relating to the beneficiary;
  • information relating to the seller’s tax representative;

  • delivery details;
  • payment instructions;
