Electronic invoicing, especially in combination with electronic payment services (see also chapter on SEPA), has a huge potential to increase the productivity of enterprises. Different national requirements, especially in the field of VAT invoicing, act as barriers to implement e-invoicing for cross border business. UEAPME is represented in an Expert Group of the European Commission, which works on the necessary measures to create a European Area for e-invoicing.
