Several months have passed since the announcement of Australia and New Zealand’s adoption of the Pan-European Public Procurement On-Line (PEPPOL) interoperability framework to enable electronic invoicing. The initiative to adopt PEPPOL has been well under way.
On July 25, 2019 consultation documents on local requirements were released. eDelivery Network specifications and Business Interoperability Specifications (BIS) and guidelines have been made available for businesses to begin the transition process. Stakeholders are invited to the review the information outlined in the documents and provide feedback about the proposals for local domain specific requirements and extensions to the standard PEPPOL BIS invoicing/billing documents. These requirements are still being finalized after incorporating stakeholder feedback. The transition to PEPPOL is expected to take place by the end of 2019 and by then businesses will be able to access the e-invoicing framework.
