In the first quarter of this year, the Russian Federation Tax Service modified the xml structure of certain e-documents. On February 2, Order № MMV-7-15/40@ rolled out some changes in the legal waybill. Soon afterwards, on 4 March, the modifications to the e-invoice message came into force, as detailed in Order № MMV-7-6/93@.
In general, the changes proposed by these two laws do not entail any major differences in the documents. However, updates like this can be complicated for taxpayers, unless they have a solution that adapts to them automatically.
To avoid difficulties for businesses issuing e-invoicing, EDICOM constantly checks and updates the solution in line with new legal requirements as they appear. To this end, the company has a Permanent e-Invoicing Observatory, which analyses the rollout and development of this system in 60 countries around the world. This ensures that the international e-billing platform is kept up-to-date with current legislation at all times, so users do not have to worry about any changes.
e-Invoicing in Russia
Nowadays, the e-invoicing system is spreading worldwide. In Russia, its development is especially noticeable in sectors such as the retail, pharmaceutical and automotive industries. Large and medium-sized companies are increasingly turning to this technology to save on costs and improve their management.
