At the meeting on application of electronic invoicing system, the Minister of Finance announced that the Law on Electronic Invoicing will be amended by the end of the year and that a transitional deadline will be given for adjusting the e-invoicing system by the end of April 2022.
This means that the beginning of the application of the Law on Electronic Invoicing for public sector entities and for private sector entities that issue invoices to public sector entities, instead of January 1, 2022, will be postponed to May 1, 2022.
Other deadlines from the Law on Electronic Invoicing will not change.
Therefore, the obligation of a public sector entity to receive and store electronic invoices and to issue electronic invoices to another public sector entity first applies, and this will apply from May 1, 2022, instead of January 1st, just as the obligation of a private entity sector to issue an electronic invoice to a public sector entity.
The obligation of the private sector entity to receive and keep the electronic invoice issued by the public sector entity, as well as the electronic invoices issued by the private sector entity, will apply from July 1, 2022, as planned. Also, the obligations of issuing and keeping electronic invoices in transactions between private sector entities take effect from January 1, 2023.
A demo version of the eInvoice system is available on the e-Invoice website
