For Customers, Suppliers, Public Authorities and Platforms
There is hardly a business process today that is undergoing as many changes as invoicing. More and more, established invoicing processes involve the most varied transmission channels, formats and media types. Invoicing requirements, which now also include those of other countries, are so complex that existing systems and infrastructures frequently reach their limits.

And Retarus supports that invoicing processes you use for both your customers and suppliers.

Manage All of Your Invoice Process Requirements Centrally
Retarus supports your invoicing via all of today’s conventional communication channels. Each month, we send millions of invoices for our customers. Thanks to hybrid formats that combine PDF and structured invoicing data, you can set simple EDI parameters to define the outgoing channel.
Invoices are sent through the most varied channels that are often very difficult to manage. Simple PDF documents are not very useful in this case, because even though they are “digital” and cost-effective, they cannot be processed in a structured or automatic way. Retarus can work with all of your input channels and capture unstructured documents in such a way that you always receive structured documents in the end.
Your Advantage with Retarus
Retarus document validation helps you save an enormous amount of time otherwise spent on checking details and correcting errors.
Long-term archiving according to GoBD guidelines
You no longer need to keep pace with ever-changing compliance requirements. This means you are always up to date when something changes.
With Retarus’ Signing Service, PDFs and selected EDI formats receive a qualified electronic signature and therefore comply with external or internal compliance requirements.

In principle, companies can communicate by way of Peppol with all partners who are also connected to the network by way of one of the many service providers.

E-Invoicing Specifics in Europe
The EU Commission has been taking steps to advance the adoption of electronic invoicing for quite some time now, and the free market has also long taken note of the benefits e-invoicing offers to processes. However, e-invoicing in Europe is currently evolving so dynamically that one could easily lose track of developments. Most member states have introduced their own standards that need to be complied with when invoicing, such as:
Mandatory Electronic Invoicing for B2G Transactions in Germany
Anyone in Germany who wants to issue invoices to federal, state and local authorities must do so electronically. PDF invoices are no longer permitted for this. Instead, data must be transferred in the form of an XRechnung.
Another buzzword in e-invoicing is ZUGFeRD 2.1.1, which is a hybrid format. In addition to a PDF document, the ZUGFeRD format also includes a structured, standard-compliant XML file. ZUGFeRD is particularly suited for sending bulk invoices. In the past, invoices were sent as simple PDF files, which often complicated things for recipients when they tried to capture the data.
Retarus Business Integration Services offer the entire range of e-invoicing solutions and infrastructure required for B2G, B2B & B2C through to long-term archiving. And finally, the human factor with excellent service and support makes all the difference.

Mandatory Electronic Invoicing for B2G Transactions in France
France already implemented the EU’s E-Invoicing Directive for B2G back in 2017. Since January 1st, 2020, those regulations have also been legally binding in the country and have proven an unconditional success. Around 140 million invoices have already been issued to public sector organizations and government administrations by way of the officially prescribed platform, Chorus Pro.
Mandatory Electronic Invoicing for B2B Transactions in France
As of July 2024, mandatory e-invoicing and e-reporting regulations will also come into force for B2B commerce. The duty to report also extends to foreign companies which are subject to and collect VAT in France.
Retarus ensures the transmission of electronic invoices and the forwarding of mandatory data to the French tax authorities, as well as legally and fiscally compliant archiving.

Mandatory Electronic Invoicing for B2B Transactions in Italy
As of January 1, 2019, Italy has been obliging its companies to issue all invoices electronically conforming with FatturaPA and send them via the official document interchange platform Sistema di Interscambio (SdI).
This regulation applies to all local companies with a VAT (Value Tax) ID number, including the Italian subsidiaries of international enterprises as well as all suppliers and service providers registered in Italy which send invoices to Italian customers. Invoices sent by means other than SdI will not be considered valid invoices – with all the consequences that fact entails.
The invoices must be transmitted in FatturaPA XML format, bearing a qualified digital signature. In addition to this, wide-ranging, country-specific requirements need to be considered with regard to archiving.
Smaller companies have the option of entering or downloading the data for a small number of invoices by means of a web portal or PEC. Larger companies, on the other hand, will not be able to get around connecting their ERP systems directly with SdI to automatically process their FatturaPA invoices and any responses that may arise.
Retarus can take these connection efforts off your hands completely. Among many other benefits, our Business Integration Services cover FatturaPA conversion, the signature process as well as long-term archiving.
Mandatory Electronic Invoicing for B2B and B2C Transactions in Hungary
Already in mid-2018, Hungary intensified the duty to report invoices online. From this date onwards, all those liable for taxation under the Hungarian tax authority were required to report all software-generated invoices made out to any other party also subject to Hungarian taxation, provided that the invoice included value tax of at least 100,000 forint. The transmission of these reports had to be done in an electronic and automated manner via the online invoicing system Online Számla using the pre-defined XML data format OSA XML.
