What is E-Invoicing?


Electronic invoicing (E-Invoicing) is the automated creation, exchange and processing of requests for payment between suppliers and buyers using a structured digital format. Invoice formats such as PDF, Word Document, and paper-scans are not considered E-Invoices as they require some level of human input.

E-Invoicing allows direct transmission of invoices in structured digital format from one finance system to another resulting in faster payment.

Singapore's IMDA has implemented the Nationwide E-Invoicing network via Pan-European Public Procurement On-Line (PEPPOL). From 20 January 2020, suppliers to the Singapore Government will have an additional channel to submit e-invoices via the Nationwide E-invoicing Network. Suppliers are encouraged to submit e-invoices to the Government agencies via this network.
