Code10 eInvoicing – SDI Italy

Electronic invoicing has become an indispensable facet of business transactions in Italy, with varying mandatory implementation dates depending on the business type and the nature of commercial operations. This shift has impacted all businesses, from large corporations to small enterprises and freelancers, necessitating specialized consulting services like those offered by Code10 to ensure regulatory compliance.

Key Implementation Dates:

  1. Large Enterprises and B2B: Starting January 1, 2019, electronic invoicing became mandatory for all B2B and B2C transactions in Italy. All large enterprises, as well as entities engaged in B2B transactions, were required to issue and receive invoices exclusively in electronic format via the  Sistema di Interscambio (SDI) .
  2. SMEs and Freelancers: This same deadline applied to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and self-employed individuals, who were also compelled to adapt to the new electronic invoicing system.
  3. International Companies: Companies not based in Italy but conducting business operations within the country were also encompassed by this regulation from the onset of 2019.

Specifics of B2B Transactions:

In the case of B2B transactions, electronic invoicing has necessitated special attention. Companies must ensure their invoices comply with a specific XML format and are transmitted through the SDI, which validates the invoices and communicates them to the respective recipients. This process has been pivotal in ensuring transparency, traceability, and the reduction of tax evasion in B2B operations.
