Are there any specific digital invoice requirements?

Important to know

When you start using digital invoices, it is important you understand that certain specific legislation applies, both relating the invoice itself was well as to VAT regulations. We all know that “invoices must be kept for a period of 7 years” (in a number of counties). This is similar to digital invoices. However, what most people do not know is that in most countries specific legislation is in place for invoices relating Fixed Assets (must be kept 10 years). Make sure that the process of storing invoices according to legislation is properly taken care of for you. The fiscal authorities require that you are in control of the entire proces from the sender to receiving and storing the invoice.
