  • No manual entry of the invoice data

  • Direct processing via the usual payment methods

  • VAT compliant invoice data

  • No physical archiving

  • You can download your invoice data directly in your financial software or receive e-bills directly in e-finance.

    E-bill in e-finance

    Receive and pay invoices

    E-bill in e-finance is ideal if you receive only a few invoices electronically and do not have your own software. You receive and pay your invoices conveniently via e-finance.

    Notifications

    Receive notifications via push message or e-mail as soon as a new electronic invoice arrives in your e-finance.

    Archiving and mandatory retention

    PostFinance archives the digitally signed e-bills in PDF format VAT-compliantly in e-finance for 10 years. They can be used to claim VAT input tax deductions. The invoice issuer is responsible for issuing VAT-compliant documents. Storage of electronically transmitted documents is the responsibility of the taxpayer.
