eInvoicing & PEPPOL, what does it mean and what are the benefits?

The global standard for electronic invoicing (einvoicing) is PEPPOL. It allows you to send and receive invoices digitally and revel in cost savings, reduce errors as well as complying with government requirements. With Esker, those benefits dramatically increase through your entire AP process.

How does eInvoicing & PEPPOL work?

PEPPOL, whats the situation in New Zealand and how does it fit in with Esker.

It’s that easy. Invoices come in digitally, PEPPOL does it’s thing, and invoices go out.

PEPPOL in New Zealand

Early in 2019, the Australian and New Zealand governments adopted the Pan European Public Procurement Online (PEPPOL) interoperability framework for eInvoicing. At the same time, the Australia New Zealand Electronic Invoicing Board (ANZEIB) was established to set the direction for the rollout of eInvoicing.

Fast forward to 2023 and Central Government agencies are all required to be capable of receiving eInvoices. So even though at the moment, it is still possible for other businesses to send and receive standard invoices, you’re missing out on a raft of benefits.
