The recent publication of Ministerial Mandate number EHA/962/2007 defines the elements necessary for converting paper invoices into their electronic equivalent establishing that the digitalization process must guarantee that the result is a faithful reproduction of the original paper document and that the digitalization device (scanner) must produce the image along with a Qualified Electronic Signature (as defined in Directive number 1999/93). The process through which this is accomplished is designated as "Certified Digitalization."

Invoice example With GST & PST An invoice not only shows the customer or client how much money is due but provides tax information in some countries multiple taxes may apply for example in Canada it is required to put the Suppliers identification numbers for GST and QST taxes purposes. Whenever a taxable sale is made the customer must be informed that GST and QST are added to the selling price. As there are no standard invoices required by law for this purpose you must indicate the amount of the taxes on the cash register receipt; on the invoice or contract remitted to the customer. If you choose to indicate the GST and the QST the amounts must be stated clearly.The European Union requires a VAT (value added tax) identification number on invoices between entities registered for VAT.

Electronic invoices provide an important means of reducing the costs of processing sending distributing and maintaining invoices resulting in a simplification of administrative procedures and a considerable reduction in the amount of time and space consumed as the invoices are transmitted through telematic means accomplished by applying technical certification mechanisms (electronic signatures) which guarantee the basic elements required in any invoice (the authenticity of its origin and integrity of its content) and allow them to be maintained in digital format which affords immediate access to them at any given moment.

Dealing with this volume in a manual operation was causing several problems. Invoice processing was extremely paper intensive; a considerable amount of time and effort was spent data inputting chasing paper invoices and filing.

No PO number Invoices that arrive in AP without a PO number can be very problematic which can take the team a lot of man-hours to manually process them. AP may receive non-PO invoices when a supplier has provided products or services to the buyer without receiving a purchase order. Many different challenges can arise when processing non-PO invoices which may include difficulty identifying the purchaser and original authoriser - making the approval process lengthy and a higher risk for errors.

Most people spend hours on their website design business cards and resumes but then use a template for their invoice. The invoice is your last contact with your client and it should share the attention to detail branding and style of your other elements. By creating a beautiful clear invoice you are saying that you care about the little details. Most importantly make sure you have all the necessary information.

Another outcome is an increase in efficiency; the AP department can instantly find an invoice without having to waste time chasing the business users. With approximately 70% of the invoices now matching the PO immediately a considerable amount of invoices only require scanning after which the process is entirely automated. This efficiency has directly resulted in a reduction in the number of people required in the Accounts Payable department; before the system was installed the team consisted of 13 people and there have been reductions in headcount as the AP manager substantiates:
