How e-bills work
E-bills are used in B2B transactions, in other words between two companies. Invoice recipients import the data directly into their accounting system, where they trigger the creditor workflow. This requires additional information that can be read from the machine-readable data.
An eInvoicing provider is responsible for the electronic exchange of data. Payment is made at the end of the creditor workflow when a payment order is issued to the bank. The benefits: if you decide to issue and receive e-bills, you will solely deal with these in your accounting software.
