Ministry allows e-mail invoicing


Finance minister Jacek Rostowski on 20 December signed into law an ordinance permitting the use of e-mail invoices as a fully legitimate form of invoicing. This is good news for thousands of companies that wanted to abandon costly paper-based invoicing but found the cost of obtaining a secure electronic signature (the only alternative option, until now) prohibitively high.

Companies will still be required to obtain the consent of each customer for receiving electronic invoices instead of paper ones, and to store all e-mail invoices in a way that permits their easy retrieval for authenticity checks.

The change should significantly facilitate the take-up of electronic invoicing solutions in Poland, which has been slow so far, even compared to other countries in the region.
