In January 2013 came into force on “Real Decreto 1619/2012” laying down the rules governing the invoicing obligations, which also affected the electronic invoice.
We define E-invoicing as one that has been issued and received like telematics form. And also is conditional on the recipient has consented to receive such invoice.
With this new regulation is intended to give a boost to the invoice in this format, giving it the same treatment as the paper invoice. In order to reduce costs and make more competitive to business.
The novelty in terms of electronic invoice that includes this “Real Decreto” is, among other, the unnecessary act of an advanced electronic signature. That is, it’s not mandatory the electronic data interchange (EDI), although its use is recommended to ensure the authenticity and integrity of the content of invoice.
In addition to a number of modifications to the electronic invoice, this regulation creates two new types of invoices:
The electronic invoice must have the same data requirements as paper invoices. And are:
Both paper invoices and electronic invoices must be retained in any means possible to ensure its authenticity and integrity of its contents. So in OpenKM, we have incorporated a module that allows you to manage these types of documents, from validating the digital signature invoice by up to send notifications to those interested.
