The ZUGFeRD standard for sending invoices

ZUGFeRD invoices not only reduce the cost of invoicing by eliminating material and postage costs, but also forms the basis for process optimisation.

Thanks to the integrated electronic process, accounting becomes much more efficient and thus relieves SMEs (small and medium-sized enterprises).

The IT industry is increasingly counting on ZUGFeRD invoices – electronic invoices with structured data in ZUGFeRD format.

XimantiX supports the ZUGFeRD standard for both electronic invoicing with XimantiX ‘eBeleg Service – Ausgang’ and as part of automated invoice reception with XimantiX ‘eBeleg Service – Eingang’.

What do ZUGFeRD invoices mean for the dispatch of electronic invoices?

A ZUGFeRD invoice is an invoice in the ZUGFeRD standard and includes both the visual representation of the invoice as a PDF, as well as the structured data in XML. It forms the basis for digitised processes in accounting. Our aim is to enable you to send invoices efficiently and directly from the source system, your ERP system.

Bereits heute erwarten schon viele Unternehmen von ihren Lieferanten die Rechnungen im ZUGFeRD Format. This is sure to increase, because
authorities expect to receive electronic invoices from their suppliers in future.

Some companies still want to receive paper invoices. This is a situation we are quite aware of. It is also why we offer you the technical basis for multi-channel requirements when sending invoices with our XimantiX ‘eBeleg Service – Ausgang’. This includes support for different standards for electronic dispatch, including the operation for sending printed invoices by post through the Print Document option in our solution.

Even if invoice recipients do continue to want different formats, you receive digitised processes from XimantiX and can benefit from the advantages. If this is also your objective, we will gladly help you to achieve it.

Will authorities accept ZUGFeRD invoices?

E-invoicing law and the e-invoice regulation adopted by the German Federal Government made it clear in the meantime that ZUGFeRD invoices can be sent to authorities in future. This standard could be considered an established standard in the e-invoice regulation in profile from ZUGFeRD 2.0 or in the EN 16931 variant.
