E-invoicing takes off in the Brussels Capital Region!

Published on 26.08.2021

Electronic invoicing consists of the complete automation of the invoicing process, from the issuance of the invoice by the supplier to its archiving by the customer. A pdf invoice sent by e-mail is therefore not an electronic invoice.

As from 1 November 2020 invoices for all new contracts of the Brussels regional administrations and organisations must be submitted in a digital format.

Since that date the number of digital invoices received by the Brussels public organizations has increased tenfold! In a span of less than one year the percentage of digital invoicing in the Brussels Capital Region went up from 1.06 to 10.08% (digital invoices received by public administrations and organisations).
