The transition to mandatory electronic invoicing is an opportunity for companies. The dematerialization of invoices makes it possible to secure and automate processes that are often time-consuming and with low added value.
In addition, choosing to dematerialize your invoices today allows you to optimize your costs quickly. On average, receiving an invoice cost €10 less in electronic format than in paper format. In issuing, the saving is €6.45.
What is an electronic invoice?
To be considered electronic, an invoice must be created, issued and received in electronic format. This means that it does not exist in paper format. A simple PDF or scanned paper are therefore not electronic invoices.
The tax compliance of an electronic invoice
Today, in France, for a dematerialized invoice to be legally compliant, its issuer must guarantee three principles:
- The authenticity of the origin in order to guarantee the identity of the issuer;
- The integrity of the content to guarantee the non-alteration of the data;
- The readability of the invoice.
Methods of exchanging dematerialized invoices
There are currently three methods of exchanging electronic invoices: audit trail, electronic signature and full EDI. Depending on your situation and your internal capacities, our experts will advise you on the solution best suited to your needs.
By dematerializing your invoices in EDI, you will have only few changes to make when switching to the obligation of e-invoicing.
If necessary, following an internal or external check, a module allows you to return a batch of invoices according to different criteria such as the date or the invoice number.
New obligation on electronic invoicing: How to respond to it?
From September 1, 2026, in France, all companies will be required to accept the receipt of electronic invoices. This is only the first step provided for by the 2020 and 2024 finance laws aimed to generalizing e-invoicing to all companies.
On this same date, large companies and ETIs will be required to issue their invoices in electronic format. On September 1, 2027 it will be the turn of SMEs, VSEs and Micro-enterprises. An e-reporting obligation will follow that of e-invoicing.
This new reform is based on the establishment of a National Public Platform on which all B2B invoice data will have to pass. In operation, this is similar to the operation of the Chorus Pro platform with a Y architecture.
In order to comply with this new regulation, we advise you to anticipate your procedures. At TX2 CONCEPT, we are here to support you in your project and offer you a solution adapted to your needs.
We are committed to taking the necessary steps to be registered as a Partner Dematerialization Platform (PDP).
