The e-invoice suits both consumer invoicing and business-to-business invoicing. The information necessary for the transmission of e-invoices is exchanged between the payer and the invoicer: companies exchange the information in a manner of their choice whereas the information concerning consumer customers is transmitted from Netbank.
The most important parts of consumer invoicing are the invoicer notification and the reception notification. The invoicer notification notifies the consumer customer that your company offers the e-invoice. The payers see the information in their Netbank services and can order the e-invoice from your company. From this order the bank forms a reception notification, which the invoicer retrieves in file format.
The invoicer notification is formed automatically. If your company does not have a program to form the notification, you can find one on the website of the Federation of Finnish Financial Services (FFI).
