Readiness Of Slovenian E-Invoicing (ROSE)

ROSE project with new solutions for exchange of e-Invoices in public procurement in Slovenia and the European Union

"Readiness Of Slovenian E-Invoicing” (ROSE) project, co-financed by the European Union and implemented by the Public Payments Administration of the Republic of Slovenia, Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Slovenia, ZZI d.o.o., Mojdenar IT d.o.o. and Centre for European Perspective, is entering the analytical and conceptual solutions phase, throughout which the partners will continue to raise awareness and promote exchange of e-Invoices in the EU. They discussed the achievements so far and future goals at the second Steering Board Meeting hosted by the Centre for European Perspective on 27 July 2017.

The key objective of the consortium that is addressing the European Directive on electronic invoicing in public procurement (2014/55/EU), is to set up supporting technical environment that will allow them to upgrade the existing system of e-Invoicing for the budget users and to establish a system for the contracting entities (i.e. public service providers other than budget users). Both systems will enable the contracting authorities and contracting entities to receive and accept e-Invoices in accordance with the European standards on e-Invoicing.

e-Invoice recipients' entity database, that will be set up by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Slovenia, is following the decision of the European Directive according to which the ability to use the e-Invoicing system is also required from public service providers other than budget users. Among those we most often find local utility and other public services companies. The consortium will to a large extent focus on trainings that will help them understand the standardization of the e-Invoicing in the EU and in Slovenia. EU Member States and the European Commission introduced the new European standard mainly due to the diversity of the e-Invoices formats, used in various EU countries. Such diversity leads to unnecessary complexity and high costs for economic operators and public entities and prevents electronic invoices to flow seamlessly across the EU which limits effectiveness of the Digital Single Market. Solutions developed through the ROSE project, will include nationally-specific e-Invoicing standard eSlog 2.0 in compliance with European standards, a platform for transposition and receipt of e-Invoices sent in one of the European standards, e-invoices recipients' database and upgraded single entry and exit points for exchange of e-Invoices at the Public Payments Administration.

National conference, devoted to better understanding of public service providers concerning receipt of e-invoices and presentation of accomplishments of the ROSE project will be organized on 25 September 2017 in Ljubljana.
