New German coalition government announces intention to implement B2B e-invoicing

6 January 2022

The German government has announced that it intends to implement a mandatory B2B e-invoicing regime in the country.
   
The new voluntary regime will allow businesses that sell to other VAT registered businesses and government departments in the country to declare their sales to the German tax authorities via a new e-invoicing platform. This is instead of sending invoices directly to their customers.

The German tax authorities will then digitally verify these invoices and send them to the customer via its platform.

The government has confirmed that it intends to implement the new regime as soon as possible and hopes this will help to prevent VAT fraud in the country, while reducing administration requirements for both the German VAT administration and VAT registered businesses.
