About the E-Delivery of Business - E-invoicing Sub-Committee
The e-delivery of business - e-invoicing sub-committee looks to support software developers and interested parties involved in the development and adoption of e-invoicing solutions in Australia, New Zealand and across the Peppol network. This sub-committee, through monthly meetings, provides a platform for the broader Australian and New Zealand software industries to engage, participate and collaborate on A-NZ Peppol e-invoicing.
Understanding that Peppol is more than just e-invoicing, this sub-committee will also have a focus on other e-delivery opportunities for our members and the wider e-invoicing community.
The objectives of this sub-committee include:
- Monitoring opportunities and developments in e-invoicing
- Making recommendations on e-invoicing policies, technologies and their commercial implications
- Making recommendations to the DSPANZ Board surrounding e-invoicing
- Progressing e-invoicing awareness and adoption in both Australia and New Zealand
- Providing a platform for members and stakeholders to convene and share information and concerns with the ability for DSPANZ to escalate these queries with the ATO, MBIE or Peppol if needed
