Swedish government updates draft e-invoicing law

Thursday 15th February, 2018

The Swedish government revealed plans last year to introduce legal requirements for e-Invoicing within the Swedish public sector in compliance with the e-Invoicing Directive 2014/55/EU.

Since then the Swedish government has published an updated draft law that involves more extensive changes than previously announced.

From 1st April 2019, all contracting entities shall exclusively receive and process electronic invoices.

Also effective as of this date, all suppliers to contracting authorities shall exclusively send electronic invoices to the contracting authorities.

The electronic invoices shall be in a format that complies with the European standard (EN) or in a different structured format agreed upon between the contracting entity and the supplier.

According to decisions taken in December 2015, all contracting authorities shall be able to use PEPPOL for the transmission of electronic documents as of 1st November 2018.
