Learn the basics
What is eInvoicing?
eInvoicing enables organisations to send and receive invoices electronically, directly to their software. It removes the need for unnecessary data entry and inaccurate OCR scanning.
eInvoicing in Australia is provided through a network of interoperable Access Points, like MessageXchange, conforming to the PEPPOL standard that has been adopted around the world.
eInvoicing happens through a four-corner model, where corners one and four are the supplier and customer, and corners two and three are Access Points. Access Points connect to each other to exchange eInvoices. You can think of it like a telephone network – your phone and your friend’s phone are corners one and four, and your network provider (like Telstra, Optus or Vodafone) are corners two and three.

Why use eInvoicing?
Receive invoices seconds after they’re sent, so you can pay suppliers on time
With the Government’s promise to pay eInvoices in five days, now’s the time to move to eInvoicing. Receive invoices directly to your software once your supplier sends it. It appears in your software, after going through an automation or matching process if you require it, so it can be paid on time.
Automate your accounts payable process
Our business process management engine can be setup to perform checks and matches along the way to verify the validity and approval of invoices. Setup processes to check the corresponding purchase order, the supplier, match the invoice amount and more.
Say goodbye to data entry errors
With eInvoicing, you’ll never have to enter an accounts payable invoice again. Suppliers enter the invoice into their own software and it almost magically appears in your software without another human touching it.

“The ATO started with an interim approach to make it eInvoicing compliant and let it start exchanging eInvoices as soon as possible… This meant minimal changes for the ATO to start exchanging invoices, and it bought it time to prepare its software and its people for the second phase.“
We’ve integrated with a range of software, from SAP to Oracle, Technology One, Microsoft Dynamics, Netsuite, Pronto, MYOB, Xero and more. We can connect to any software, in the cloud or on-premise, as long as it has the ability to export and import data.
