100% compliant with all e-invoicing requirements
With many governments and large corporations adopting e-invoicing, companies must send e-invoices if they want to get paid. Esker helps you achieve global compliance in whatever technology you choose:
Compliance via E-Signatures
Through its partnership with TrustWeaver, Esker applies the appropriate e-signatures, time stamps and verifications in over 50 countries.
Compliance via BCAT
Esker's audit trail and reporting capabilities keep track of all customer orders, from receipt and posting to dispatch and electronic archiving.
Compliance via EDI
Esker provides data formatting in the appropriate format, secured exchange via any communication transport (AS2, VPN, SFTP, etc.) and interoperability with any platform.
Regulatory compliance also includes the storing of e-invoices. All e-invoices must be archived electronically, both vendor and customer invoices, in separate and secure locations, and verifiable by an auditor until the end of the mandatory archiving period. Fully compliant with the EU Directive and the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, Esker’s electronic archiving solution provides confidentiality, control and accessibility to all invoices via a secured infrastructure and web portal.
Support for e-invoicing to public admins in Europe
The EU Directive on e-invoicing and public procurement (2014/55/EU) gives countries the opportunity to implement local legislation requiring vendors to send e-invoices to public administrations (PA), with the goal of making e-invoicing the predominant invoicing method in Europe by 2020. Here's how Esker can support your company:
Compliance with every country
E-invoicing is already mandatory to the public sector (e.g., hospitals, municipalities, regional councils, government agencies, etc.) for many European countries (e.g., Austria, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Norway, Italy, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland). Each country has its own specifications for e-invoicing formats, required fields and platforms for e-invoicing — Esker helps you deliver e-invoices in compliance with all requirements.
Compliance with every format and every platform
Esker is capable of processing any format (e.g., PDF, UBL, Facturae in Spain, Fattura-PA in Italy, etc.) and communicating with each PA platform to send e-invoices and provide status updates.
Compliance with e-invoice archiving
Esker's e-archiving solution is equipped with a secured infrastructure and web portal, and fully compliant with the EU Directive and regulatory frameworks.
