What is an E-bill?

An e-bill provides the contents of the bill – instead of on paper or in an image file such as B. as PDF – in a structured, machine-readable XML data record. This ensures that information that is issued in this form by the biller is electronically transmitted and received, and that it can be further processed automatically and paid out without media discontinuity.

The introduction of e-bill

Digitization and automation of business processes are increasingly becoming part of everyday business life. E-billing is a key issue here. Since November 27, 2020, federal suppliers have been obliged to issue invoices for public contracts in electronic form.
