What is e-invoicing?

It exchanges invoices from software-to-software

Peppol e-invoicing enables organisations to send and receive invoices electronically, directly from the supplier’s accounting software, to that of the customer. It removes the need for unnecessary data entry.

Think of it like a phone network. It just works.

E-invoicing 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 e-invoices. 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.

It’s an easy way to comply with fast payment policies

The average time to process an e-invoice is just days – a fraction of the time it takes to process a regular invoice. It’ an easy way to comply with payment policies, meet your goals and foster good relationships with suppliers.

Why use e-invoicing?


Receive invoices seconds after they’re sent, so you can pay suppliers on time

With the Government’s promise to pay e-invoices in five days, now’s the time to move to e-invoicing. 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 e-invoicing, 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.
