Electronic invoices could save €10bn a year

Dutch companies could save €10bn a year if they stopped sending invoices on paper and just used electronic mail, the entrepreneurs organisations VNO-NCW and MKB told Monday’s Financieele Dagblad.

At the moment 95% of Dutch companies still send paper invoices even though it costs €30 per invoice compared with €6 for an electronic bill.
According to the two organisations, however, the existing EDI standard for electronic billing is much too expensive and they support the European Commission’s plan to develop a new one.
