Germany steps up e-Invoicing drive

Tuesday 18th January 2022

Germany is advancing the implementation of e-invoicing in public administrations according to a timeline that makes B2G invoicing mandatory in the federated states.

The German government has proposed the implementation of a new national VAT declaration system to create, verify and send invoices.

From this month, BTG Suppliers will need to issue electronic invoices to the federal states of Sarre, Baden Wurttemberg and Hamburg suppliers, excluding orders under 1,000 Euro

The mandatory issue of electronic invoices for suppliers of the national federal government and the administration of Bremen started during 2020. Other states are set to follow suit including West Mecklenburg-Pomerania in 2023, Hesse and Rhineland-Palatinate in 2024.

Since 18th April 2020 the federated states must accept e-invoices in compliance with the European Directive 2014/55/EU.

The federated states can choose whether to follow the model determined by the Core Invoice User Specification (CIUS) or their own e-invoicing standard that will need to use the PEPPOL network.
