B2B e-Invoicing to Become Mandatory in Italy in 2019 for All Private Companies


fattura elettronica B2B

B2B e-Invoicing between private companies is starting to spread throughout Europe. With the passing of the 2018 Budget Law, the text that introduces obligatory electronic invoicing among private companies in Italy has finally been approved.

The text, which amends Legislative Decree 127 of August 5, 2015, includes transactions between private entities within e-invoicing processes. So, businesses will now be required to transmit their invoices through the SdI (Sistema di Interscambio) exchange system and in the XML format defined by the Revenue Agency (Agenzia delle Entrate).

Italy is one of the most advanced countries in Europe in e-invoicing uptake, as well as massive widespread use of the PEPPOL network for exchanging data between the public sector and its suppliers. Thanks to the spread of e-invoicing in the B2G field, it was foreseeable that the next step towards full digital transformation would be B2B electronic invoicing.

Budget Law key dates

To comply with this new obligation, companies must take into account two key dates:

  • As of July 1, 2018, the requirement comes into force for those companies with activities related to hydrocarbon fuel supplies for engines or which provide subcontracting or outsourcing services in public tenders.
  • From January 1, 2019, the requirement will be applied across the board for all private companies.

How does e-Invoicing in Italy work?

EDICOM has developed a solution that automatically integrates the electronic invoices received through the direct channel between EDICOM and the SDI platform into your ERP. So, it is no longer necessary to check your e-mail for new messages, saving on time and resources. In reception of the XML message, it is also possible to apply a format conversion to deliver a file suitable for simple and direct integration into the ERP. Notifications from the SDI, necessary for correct use of the platform, can also be integrated in the ERP.

The e-Invoicing solution for Italy developed by EDICOM works equally well for billing between private companies and for invoicing the Public Administration. It is a complete and secure services platform that guarantees connectivity with any partner or institution. In addition, it is a scalable and international solution, adapted to the regulatory requirements for e-invoicing in more than 65 countries around the world.
