EU Directive on e-Invoicing

get link The BII workshop welcomes the European Commission Directive on electronic invoicing in public procurement (2014/55/EU) , and supports the objective of the Directive to remove market access barriers in cross border public procurement.

get link As one of its key measures to increase the uptake of electronic invoicing in the European market, the proposed directive calls for the establishment of a European Standard (EN) for a Semantic Data Model for a European Core Invoice.

http://solidkitchens.com.au/tag/kitchens/ The BII workshop has a number of deliverables that are relevant for e-Invoicing in public procurement and the proposed initiative to develop a European Standard (EN) for a Semantic Data Model for a European Core Invoice. These deliverables are relevant not only for the Semantic data Model itself, but also for the methodology relevant for it development and adoption.

 

BII deliverable Comment
CWA16558 Annex BBII Guideline; Capturing Of Business Requirements Describes a methodology for how to identify and describe business   requirements.This deliverable is currently under review and revision in   CEN WS/BII3.
CWA16558 Annex CBII Guideline; Conformance And Customizations Describes a methodology for how to adopt and make use of   the BII Profiles in a specific business context, while still preserving   interoperability.This deliverable is scheduled for review and revision in   CEN WS/BII3.
CWA16562 Annex BBII Profile 04; Invoice Only This profile describes a process comprising only a   supplier initiated electronic Invoice. It is intended to support use cases   where the invoicing is electronic, but where automation of matching it to   other documents is not required.The Invoice is a self-contained document with respect to   commercial and fiscal requirements.It is not a primary objective of this profile to   facilitate automatic order matching and/or cost allocation; the profile   assumes limited or no procurement data content and limited or no aligned and   synchronized identifiers in the system to match the transaction.This profile may cover Invoice factoring arrangements but   is not designed for self-billing.The profile includes a semantic information requirement   model for the invoice transaction.
CWA   16562 – Annex CBII   Profile 05; Billing This profile describes a process comprising an electronic   Invoice and, potentially, an electronic Credit Note, or just an electronic   Credit Note. It is intended for situations where invoicing is electronic but   where matching of the Invoice to other electronic documents may not be practical.   The Invoice and Credit Note are self-contained documents with respect to   commercial and fiscal requirements.Billing anomalies are notified externally and then   resolved by the issuing of a Credit Note and/or a Corrective Invoice. This   profile is also used when a Credit Note needs to be exchanged for other   reasons than for correcting an Invoice.It is not a primary objective of this profile to   facilitate automatic Order-Invoice matching and/or cost allocation; the   profile assumes limited or no procurement data content and limited or no   aligned or synchronized identifiers in the system to match the transaction.The Invoice may be expressed as text rather than   identifiers and codes e.g. the Invoice may contain items (goods or services)   with item identifiers as well as items with free text description.This profile may cover Invoice factoring arrangements.   This profile can be used with little or no integration to ERP systems.The profile includes semantic information requirement   models for the invoice and credit note transactions.
