Australia to introduce B2B e-Invoicing

Thursday 14th July, 2022

The Australian Government has recently launched an initiative with the Business eInvoicing Right (BER) to push for the adoption of Business-to-Business (B2B) eInvoicing in the country.

Companies will gradually be able to request their trading partners to send them e-Invoices in the Peppol format. 

The Government has invested a further $15.3 million to enhance the value of e-Invoicing for businesses and increase business awareness and adoption.

The funding will support the Department of Treasury and the Australian Peppol Authority to:

• Work with payment providers to integrate e-Invoicing into the main payment methods used by business
• Deliver educational activities to raise business awareness of e-Invoicing
• Progress supply chain pilots with large businesses to gain insights and drive adoption across supply chains
• Continue work with states and territories to increase public sector e-Invoicing adoption.

The BER has three proposed implementation phases:

From 1st July, 2023: All companies can require their large trading partners to send them e-Invoices in the Peppol format. Large companies will be obligated to send e-Invoices in the PEPPOL format upon the request of the BER.

From 1st July, 2024: All companies can require their medium to large trading partners to send them e-Invoices in the Peppol format. Medium and large companies will be obligated to send e-Invoices in the Peppol format upon the request of the BER.

From 1st July, 2025: All companies will be required to exchange e-Invoices in the Peppol format. All companies will be obligated to send e-Invoices in the Peppol format upon the request of the BER.
