Global e-Invoicing from one single platform is possible
Businesses operate in globalized markets and run their trading operations in a transnational framework, which means they must adapt their processes to an increasingly widespread reality: e-Invoicing. E-billing is a key transaction in trade relations that must comply with the legislation laid down by each country. In some cases, particularly in Latin America, issuance is mandatory. This is due to its potential to improve fiscal control by the tax authorities, in addition to the economic and production benefits.
EDICOM’s e-Invoicing platform simplifies the process of sending and receiving electronic invoices in multinational environments. It is the solution for companies that operate in different markets from centralized management systems and have to be able to process these documents according to the legislation currently in force in each country.
