The aim of this project is to update and adapt the Catalan electronic invoicing solutions to the new European Union standard EN 16931 in order to have a common electronic invoicing rule in Europe and to facilitate its use in the public and private Catalan sector. solutions allow the main entities that issue and receive invoices in Catalonia representing the public and private sector to update their existing eInvoicing systems.

In the public sector, the electronic invoice delivery point e.FACT, from CAOC (Consorci Administració Oberta de Catalunya), and the invoice receipt system, of the Barcelona City Council, managed by the “Municipal Informatics Institute” (IMI), have been updated to the standard.

On the other hand, in the private sector, the eInvoicing platforms PimeFactura, managed by PIMEC, and Cambra eBusiness, of the Chamber of Barcelona, have also been adapted to the norm. During the one-year project, how the results can be exported to other EU countries and sectors has been studied.

The project, coordinated by Eurecat, has counted with the participation of Barcelona Chamber of Commerce, PIMEC, Consorci d’Administració Oberta de Catalunya (CAOC) and The Municipal Institute of Information Technology (IMI) of Barcelona’s City Council.
