Electronic invoicing for suppliers of the public sector: next step on January 1st, 2018 for intermediate size companies

As a reminder, a decree dated June 26th, 2014 had introduced an electronic invoicing obligation for suppliers invoicing the State, local authorities and their respective public institutions and detailed the implementation calendar.

After large groups (more than 5 000 employees) and public authorities, it is now up to intermediate size companies (250 to 5 000 employees) to meet this requirement as from January 1st, 2018.

This electronic invoicing requirement will then be extended to small and medium size companies (10 to 250 employees) as from January 1st, 2019 as well as to very small companies (less than 10 employees) as from January 1st, 2020.

A computer solution designed by the FTA, Chorus Portail Pro, is offered to operators in order to make their transition to electronic invoicing easier.
