In file transfer

You can fully digitalise your invoicing right from the first day.

The e-invoice service in file transfer suits you if you are using a financial administration system for processing sales invoices and/or purchase invoices. You will form e-invoice files in your own system and send them to Nordea’s file transfer, just like your other payment files. Similarly, you will be able to retrieve the incoming e-invoices for checking and posting into your financial administration system. Through the system, you will be able to reach both your corporate and consumer customers with the same agreement.

The service enables you to fully automate your invoicing and processing of invoices. You can attach the printing and posting of paper invoices and the scanning of purchase invoices to the service. Thus you will be able to adopt digital invoicing even if your trading partners still process their invoices on paper. In addition to printing and scanning, you can link other additional services to the service. For instance, you can add your company’s logo to paper invoices or transmit invoice-related supplementary information on an appendix or via a link (to consumers).

Consumer invoicing

Consumer invoicing is part of the “e-invoice in file transfer” service. The service enables you to send e-invoices to personal customers’ netbanks and direct payments to your customers who do not use an online banking service. You will able to reach all banks’ personal customers through Nordea.

In consumer invoicing, a notification service is included in the e-invoicing service: invoicer notification, reception notification and receiver proposal message.  

  • The invoicer notification tells your consumer customer that your company is offering the e-invoice. The payers see the information in their online banking service and can order the e-invoice from your company. 
  • The bank will form a reception notification from this order for you. A program is required for making invoicer notifications. If your company does not yet have a program with which you can make them, such programs are available on Finance Finland (FFI)'s websiteOpens new window.
  • You can enhance your customers’ adoption of the e-invoice right from the first invoice by using a receiver proposal message. You can also start using active approval, which means that your customers will be offered a ready-made e-invoice order for their approval in Netbank.

As an additional service to your consumer invoicing, you can use the e-invoice link. The link allows you to show further invoice-related details in a separate presentment archive.

To activate the service, please contact Nordea Business Centre.
