Germany moves a step closer towards e-invoicing

Tuesday 19th March, 2024

The German legislative body, Bundesrat adopted the recommended resolution for the Growth Opportunities Act in February, which will introduce significant changes in the area of electronic invoicing.

For the law to come into force it will need approval by the Bundesrat, the next meeting scheduled for 22 March, 2024.

The Draft Law envisages the introduction of mandatory e-invoicing between 2025 and 2028. The phased introduction would start with structured e-Invoices, becoming the default invoices to be issued.

Paper invoices and other electronic invoices, including unstructured (subject to the recipient's acceptance), will still be possible to issue for two years. According to Comarch.

The phased rollout will continue for another year for taxpayers not reaching the turnover threshold of 800 000 EUR, as well as for EDI messages not compliant with the European Norm (EN 16391).
