E-invoice receiving pilot for Finnish customers – receive e-invoices directly to your Holvi account!
Now you can also receive e-invoices in Holvi. The much requested feature will soon be released for our Finnish customers. Before launching the feature, we are happy to receive feedback about the new tool from our current customers.
Using e-invoicing will make your daily life as an entrepreneur a bit easier. Please, let us know if you want to join our pilot group! Please note, that you should have an active business ID (Y-tunnus), so we can activate the service!
The benefits of receiving e-invoices are:
- The e-invoice will automatically land in your Holvi account. You will not need to worry about forgetting or loosing your invoice in your mail inbox. You will just need to choose the account you have ordered the invoice to > the invoice information will be attached to the unverified payment that is created when the invoice is received in Holvi. > You will need to verify the payment as when making a payment from your Holvi account. The invoice will be set to be paid at the due date.
- Less risk of errors. When you receive the invoice as an e-invoice you (or your accounting company) will not need to type in the payment information manually. This will lessen the risk of manual errors and will assure the invoice will be paid to the right receiver.
- Added efficiency and security. The e-invoice will arrive directly to Holvi and you will be notified when it arrives – no third parties will be able to access your invoice. You can save both money and time, when you don’t have to worry about wether the invoice you are expecting is sent, and you will not need to pay extra costs for overdue invoices. The VAT amount will be pre-filled for you, so you will directly be able to see, how much VAT you can deduct (in case you are vat liable).
- Preparing for the future and improving your company’s image. E-invoicing is getting more and more popular in B2B, especially for bigger companies and the trend is growing. When enabling e-invoicing, also smaller companies and sole traders can be just as an attractive partner option as bigger players in the same field.
How does the e-invoicing work in the pilot phase?
You can start receiving e-invoices to your account by contacting us at email@example.com and letting us know that you want to be a part of the test group. You will receive your e-invoicing address and the operator ID when we have enabled the feature for you.
After that you have made your request, you can also check your e-invoice details via going to invoices in your Holvi profile> Invoices > Invoice settings. After the activation you will see the e-invoice address of your company.
Please also remember to give the operator ID (003723327487) to your partners who need to send you an invoice!
At this point we are happy about all feedback is welcome and we are happy to hear about your experiences!
Please note that you can have several active e-invoicing agreements. When enabling the e-invoice receiving in Holvi no other agreements will be canceled and the e-invoices will reach the account you have given to your customers or partners.
How to pay an e-invoice?
You will get a notification from Holvi, when you have received an e-invoice. The notification will arrive in your registered email at Holvi and as a push notification in case you are using the Holvi mobile app.
When the e-invoice arrives, a new unverified payment will be generated in your Holvi account. You will find the invoice and payment details attached to the payment. You should verify the payment as any payment out from Holvi.
When the payment has been verified, it will automatically be paid on the due date of the invoice. Please make sure to have enough balance on the account at that time.
How much does it cost?
At the pilot phase, enabling the e-invoicing is included in your current pricing plan.
You will get an update on the possible effects of your pricing plan, when we launch the feature for all Holvi customers.
