5 February 2019
From 1 January 2019, France extended the obligation to submit electronic VAT invoices for sales made to the government, to include small and mid-sized businesses.
Small and mid-sized businesses are considered to be vendors with between 10 to 250 employees and this new requirement will mean that they must use authorised software to raise and send invoices via a digital connection (such as an EDI or API) to their public service customers.
Larger sized companies with more than 250 employees are already obliged to provide e-invoices on these types of transactions since 1 January 2018.
