The European e-invoice: XRechnung, Factur-X 1.0.05 and ZUGFeRD 2.1.1

The e-invoicing obligation for federal suppliers will apply from November 27, 2020. From this date, invoices of €1,000 or more must be submitted to the federal authorities as an XML file (in the form of ZUGFeRD 2.1.1, Factur-X 1.0 or XRechnung). If this does not happen, 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 obliges all contracting authorities in Europe to be able to receive and process e-invoices. In addition, contractors must issue e-invoices in accordance with 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 common invoice formats XML and PDF. ZUGFeRD 2.0 and Factur-X are identical, but the term 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 XRechnung that meets the requirements of the EN16931 standard.

Our PDF document provides you with further information on solutions, benefits and state-specific regulations.
