An e-invoice is an electronically delivered invoice in a specified standardised format (usually XML format).
E-invoices contain invoice data in a structured form and can be automatically imported into the recipient’s accounts payable system. Because e-invoices are coded in this way, they can’t be read by humans, meaning the recipient must have the technical means to receive an e-invoice.
Depending on where you live and what industry you work in, e-invoicing may be standard practice. For example, in Finland most businesses use e-invoicing; however, in Germany e-invoicing is only standard practice when billing public sector clients.
E-invoicing is currently included in our Holvi Pro and Holvi Zen pricing plans.
