Sign up for the Webinar on Europe’s Govein e-Invoicing project


Govein, the e-invoicing project led by EDICOM and funded by the CEF Telecom e-Invoicing initiative, has issued its third invitation to join. Health sector suppliers and Public Administrations wishing to benefit from the initiative have until September 30 to sign up.

The Govein project anticipates the course that Europe will be taking as of 2018, when Directive 2014/55/EU comes into force. To explain in detail what this EU-funded project is all about, our expert in international electronic invoicing, Andre Menezes, will be holding an online seminar on August 30th. Register to our webinar here.

In it, he will explain how health sector stakeholders can start up an e-invoicing platform to achieve savings of up to 75% of the costs involved in adopting this technology. Moreover, the financial collaboration from EDICOM will allow use of the e-invoicing platform free of charge throughout the project’s development.

You can find out the project’s advantages first-hand and get in touch with our experts to apply for the third registration call.

e-Invoicing becomes mandatory in Colombia from 2019

January 1, 2019 sees the start of a new phase for e-invoicing in Colombia. From that date, all those responsible for declaring VAT and Impoconsumo (Consumer Goods Tax) will be obliged to use this new system, according to the changes made in the latest tax reform (Law 1819 of 2016).

The obligation to issue e-Invoices is expected to reach over 800,000 businesses throughout the country, which will mean a real increase in the adoption of this technology. This is the goal being pursued by the National Tax and Customs Directorate (DIAN) with this new requirement, which could also reduce tax evasion rates, modernize tax compliance and increase savings for both the public and private sectors.

Although there is still a little more than a year to go for the system to be extended among taxpayers, the fact is that adoption of the new e-invoicing model will begin beforehand. In fact, for the remainder of 2017 and during 2018 the Tax Authority plans to have at least 50,000 companies billing electronically.
