The European e-Invoice: XInvoice, Factur-X 1.0.05 and ZUGFeRD 2.1.1

The e-invoice obligation for federal suppliers will apply from November 27, 2020. From this date, invoices of €1,000 or more must be submitted to federal authorities as XML files (in the form of ZUGFeRD 2.1.1, Factur-X 1.0 or XRechnung). If this is not done, they will be rejected.

The European standard 16931 (EN16931) defines how an e-invoice must be structured. This standard was developed by the European Committee for Standardization (CEN) as part of EU Directive 2014/55/EU and requires all public sector contractors in Europe to be able to receive and process e-invoices. In addition, contractors must issue e-invoices using these provisions by 2020. Based on EN16931, which only provides the basis for the required structured invoices, each EU member state can develop its own specification: the so-called CIUS (Core Invoice Usage Specification). In order to make e-invoices feasible for all companies regardless of their size and available resources, Germany has developed a hybrid format together with France: ZUGFeRD 2.0 or Factur-X. This standard combines the two most widely used invoice formats, XML and PDF. ZUGFeRD 2.0 and Factur-X are identical, but the name Factur-X is used internationally.

With ZUGFeRD version 2.1.1, or Factur-X 1.0.05, a profile is now also available for the use of XInvoice that meets the requirements of the EN16931 standard.
