What is Simplerinvoicing?
Simplerinvoicing is the Dutch standard for e-invoicing. It's a network of participating software suppliers and e-invoicing service providers that enables e-invoices to be exchanged directly between ERP software and e-invoicing services. Service providers and their customers can use the system to send and receive e-invoices using their existing ERP or bookkeeping software. It doesn't matter if the sender and the recipient are using different software, as long as Simplerinvoicing is supported at both ends. A Simplerinvoicing e-invoice is an XML file that goes straight to the recipient's ERP or bookkeeping software, reducing administration and cutting costs.
IIs your bookkeeping software suitable?
About thirty software suppliers are now affiliated to Simplerinvoicing, and 5,046 businesses can now use the network for e-invoicing. There are also firms that can build customised interfaces. Visit get.simplerinvoicing.org to see whether your software can send and receive e-invoices via the Simplerinvoicing network.

Why didn't you support e-invoicing before?
We've been actively involved with Simplerinvoicing for two and a half years, but unfortunately we haven't used the system to send and receive invoices ourselves. The main reason that we didn't start e-invoicing sooner was that our bookkeeping software, Exact Globe, didn't support it. However, over the last few months, we've been working with our Exact supplier to develop an extension. As a result, our software does now support Simplerinvoicing and we're able to send and receive e-invoices.
