New phase for Business-to-Government (B2G) e-invoicing
While Business-to-Business (B2B) e-invoicing has been dominating headlines recently in Germany, it is important to remember that Germany is currently also in the process of fostering its B2G e-invoicing initiative.
B2G obligations in Germany operate on a federal level, with an increasing number of federal states being tasked with B2G obligations incrementally.
Rhineland-Palatinate is the latest state where e-invoicing obligations have transpired, where B2G e-invoicing has been mandatory from 1 January 2024.
The state of Hessen is expected to follow next, with a projected date of 1 April 2024.
Germany is also undertaking planning for the execution of its upcoming Business-to-Business (B2B) e-invoicing mandate. Kofax is following this closely. You can read more about this here.
