“For UK businesses, particularly small and medium sized enterprises, to realise the full benefits of e-invoicing, it is important that the systems are easy to install and use, and pricing is flexible enough to suit the needs of diverse businesses. E-invoicing providers have committed to looking at ways to improve interoperability and accessibility of e-invoicing for SMEs, including through the Business Application Software Developers’ Association Interoperability Charter.” (page 23).
This strategy sets out a plan for government and industry to continue to work together to promote the success of the UK information economy sector.
Tim Cole, Chair of the BASDA eBusiness SIG comments: ‘There is a real opportunity for us to engage with Government on this agenda. The stance taken by Government on e-Invoicing is welcomed … but measured. This is the start of a journey for sure!’
