Transmitting electronic invoices via Peppol

xSuite eDNA (electronic Document Network Adapter) is your cloud-based exchange and conversion platform for e-invoices. The solution accepts incoming or outgoing invoice data records and converts them into the desired XML format. EU standards (DIN EN 16931, BIS Billing 3.0, e.g. XRechnung and ZUGFeRD) and numerous international formats are supported. The Peppol network is used as the transmission path.
The cloud solution offers the advantage that formats are always automatically kept up to date and new formats are continuously added. Adaptations in your ERP system are not necessary, as we perform the updates for you on the cloud side. The solution can also be seamlessly integrated into your system via APIs.

Receiving and processing electronic invoices

The data from incoming e-invoices is transferred with xSuite eDNA and automatically imported into the corresponding fields in your ERP system, both at header and line item field level. Additional information is also transferred, such as the receipt date of the electronic invoice. The data is then checked against the master data in your ERP system. This enables automated creditor recognition. The e-invoice can then be conveniently processed with the same xSuite workflow that you use for paper, PDF or other invoice formats.

Things to know about Peppol and the e-invoice

What is Peppol?

Peppol (Pan-European Public Procurement Online) is a network and standard for the electronic exchange of business documents, especially in public procurement. The aim is to increase efficiency and transparency. Companies can use Peppol to exchange electronic documents such as invoices in a secure and standardized way. Originally developed for the public sector, Peppol is now used across all industries. The network is based on open standards, promotes interoperability between systems and facilitates cross-border e-commerce by defining uniform formats and protocols for data exchange. Originally developed for Europe, Peppol is now also used in Asia.

What is an XML invoice?

An XML file (Extensible Markup Language) is a text-based file that stores structured data in a hierarchical format. It consists of tags that describe the content and are arranged in a tree diagram. The XML format is often used in data transfer between different systems as it is platform-independent and easy to understand. XML is used in numerous areas such as web development, databases and configuration files - and as a machine-readable e-invoice format.

What is ViDA?

ViDA stands for "VAT in the Digital Age". It is an EU initiative that aims to adapt VAT regulations to the requirements of the digital age. The central components are a mandatory e-invoice in machine-readable format and the introduction of digital real-time tax reporting (CTC, "Continuous Transaction Controls").
