A new EU Procurement Directive for e-invoicing came into effect on 18 April 2019, introducing new e-invoicing standards.
The practical effect of this is that contracting authorities should be able to accept and process electronic invoices that comply with the new standard. It is up to suppliers whether they choose to use the new standard or not.
More information is available from the Procurement Advice Note (PAN) which will be available on the Procurement Route Planner shortly.
