E-Invoicing Standard: ZUGFeRD
Trubiquity’s EDI capabilities provide built-in support for all common communication protocols & standards as well as the ability to manage data flows with both EDI and non-EDI enabled trading partners – anytime, anywhere, regardless of system configuration. To keep current with the latest EDI standards, we now offer creation & transmission of invoices in a PDF format.
Support of Future E-Invoicing Standard ZUGFeRD
Going beyond EDI in accordance with VDA, EDIFACT, and ANSI standards for electronic invoices, Trubiquity now offers the creation & transmission of invoices in a PDF format. This is a significant benefit for global manufacturers, as they can now easily provide electronic invoices to non-EDI partners. With this expanded offering, we will also provide support for the forthcoming e-invoicing standard ZUGFeRd (Central User Guide of the Form electronic Invoice Germany).
ZUGFeRD can be used worldwide
The new standard, provided by FeRD (Forum electronic Invoice Germany) in June 2013 as an advance version, can be used immediately in financial and accounting software with the new data format to be completed in 2014. The ZUGFeRD format is based on a UN/CEFACT invoicing standard, an ISO standard for PDF delivery, and European recommendations for sending electronic messages. Germany is the first Member State of the European Union to provide a data format for sending electronic invoices, based on international standards, and that can be used worldwide.
Trubiquity offers its customers two options regarding the new e-invoicing standard: as either as a pure PDF invoice or as a PDF invoice with integrated encryption.
