1. What is E-invoice?

E-invoice is a collection of electronic data messages about the sale of goods and provision of services that are created, made, sent, received, stored and managed by computer. E-invoice is a comprehensive solution for organizations and businesses, helping us to distribute, process and store alternative invoices to paper invoices. E-invoice is created and processed by the organization that has been granted a tax code when selling goods and services. The invoices stored on the computers of the parties according to regulation of Vietnam law on electronic transactions.

E-invoice has two types:

  • Export invoices, value-added invoices, sales invoices, other invoices including: stamps, tickets, cards, insurance receipts, etc.
  • Air freight receipts, receipts for international freight charges, receipts for banking service charges, etc.

When using E-invoice, it is necessary to ensure two principles: determine the number of consecutive invoices in certain order and each invoice number is guaranteed to be made and used only once.

This application helps reduce administrative procedures and makes it easier for businesses to manage and monitor invoices, store them, without worrying about being torn, burned, lost or damaged.
