How do you send your invoices?

Here you'll find a list of contact details for the main regional and local administrations where you can send your electronic invoices.

Your invoices must be sent in XML format and sent directly to your customer via the Peppol network

Please note: invoices sent by email and/or in other formats (pdf, xls, etc.), are not considered electronic invoices and cannot be accepted by the administration.

There are several ways to send your electronic invoices, depending on your invoicing system:

You have an ERP system

If you issue a lot of invoices, you probably already have an ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system. If your ERP does not yet allow invoices to be sent via PEPPOL, you must change your ERP via your access point.

You can find more information in our guide to electronic invoicing.

You use an accounting and invoicing software

Ask your supplier or check on the internet if your invoicing software allows the sending of electronic invoices via the Peppol network, and find out how to proceed. 

Does your software not support invoicing via the Peppol network?

You have two options: 

You do not use an accounting or invoicing software

If you do not send many invoices to public administrations, you can encode your invoices manually (and free of charge) using the Mercurius portal:
