Gleanings: SGH expert lecture on e-billing at Future Campus
80 On 14 September, participants learned about the latest financial and legal topics in the association group environment above the roofs of the old government centre in Bonn. The topics at the ServiCon Future Campus ranged from IT law and smart insurance solutions to early risk detection and open banking.
The managing partner of the SGH Group Gerrit Hoppen informed in his technical lecture about the current requirements of the e-billing obligation as well as the reporting system. He also explained the concrete effects of the change in the law on central regulation. The latter is an important topic for trade associations. In his speech, the audience learned, among other things, what is behind an e-invoice according to EN-16931, how the gradual changeover to e-invoices is currently planned and under which conditions EDI is still possible. He then outlined how the future requirements will be mapped in e-invoice platforms in accordance with the regulations and how the special features of central settlement will also be integrated in conformity with the law.
His conclusion: For a smooth implementation of the e-bill obligation, technical know-how is needed in addition to professional expertise. Since SGH is not only a central settler but also a service provider for e-billing, the company offers its customers a unique service combination. Renowned companies worldwide have been using the ivi platform for sending and receiving electronic invoices since 2006. SGH maps all current national and international e-invoice standards and this is also where the future requirements of mandatory e-invoicing and the reporting system are implemented in a legally compliant manner.
