from EEI-platfomr news:
“We also received confirmation from several of our informal sources in Brussels. Some of them said that there are thoughts to make e-invoicing mandatory. Some others have the opinion that the e-invoicing uptake in the EU will get a boost (because of the liberalisation) as from 2013, making additional e-invoicing regulations redundant.
A third piece of evidence can be found in the speech by EU Commissioner Michel Barnier. He lifted a corner of the veil on what he calls “act two” of the priority measures of the Single Market Act. Speaking at the European Parliament, last 21 June, Michel Barnier said that electronic invoicing would be oneof the priority measures for deepening the EU Internal Market.”
