  • You can either send your e-bills from your financial software or use the online solutions e-bill light or ISRlight:

    Integrated e-bill solution

    Our integrated solution is ideal if you already have your own software and want to optimize payment collection. Issue your invoices in your software as usual. The invoice data is transferred to PostFinance from your system as a data file before being processed and forwarded to the recipient automatically in electronic format.

    E-bill light

    E-bill light is ideal if you only send a few invoices each year and do not have your own software. Registration and invoice recording are done online.

    ISRlight

    ISRlight is ideal for small and medium-sized enterprises that do not yet have their own software but want easy-to-use software for complete invoice processing.

    VAT and signature

    Electronic invoices which have been digitally signed by PostFinance Ltd can be used to claim VAT input tax deductions. The invoice issuer is responsible for ensuring that VAT-compliant receipts are delivered to the invoice recipient. The invoice issuer can instruct PostFinance Ltd, by means of a delegation declaration, to add the necessary digital signature to electronic invoices.
