Story-line and questions• EU and national states globally drive e-Invoicing > When will the Russian public sector make e-invoicing mandatory?• Nordic countries already moving to next layers – the Real Time Economy > Russia is well placed to do the same• VAT automation is important step > Russia ahead of the game• Cross-border invoicing needs support next – tax invoice to customs?• SKB Kontur is a very impressive company to partner with for Tieto © 2010 Tieto Corporation 11/01/12

  6. 6. 54bn reasons in Germany “The bulk of the companies [SMEs in Germany] squander the sizeable efficiency gains that come with the introduction of digital invoices The German economy offers total cost-savings potential of around EUR 54 bn, mainly in more efficient processes (immediate further processing of invoice data in company bookkeeping and controlling systems) Why don’t more companies make use of digitalDeutsche Bank Research report (Emphasis mine) invoicing?” © 2010 Tieto Corporation 11/01/12

  9. 9. What we would do differently now:solutions• Scanning invoices delayed migration to e-invoicing for no good reason• Buyer-specific portals deployed despite most enterprises signed up by generic portal service providers © 2010 Tieto Corporation 11/01/12
  10. 10. What we would do differently now:communication• Cost-cutting aspect dwarfed other - even more important aspects• Earlier deadlines for paper and PDF• Late and patchy visible pricing for paper invoices. © 2010 Tieto Corporation 11/01/12
  11. 11. What we would do differently now:involvement• SME-sector’s organizations were not involved strongly enough in the beginning• Accounting profession should have been strongly involved from the beginning• Municipal sector should do more for tax payers and driving local enterprises © 2010 Tieto Corporation 11/01/12
  12. 12. What we would do differently now:standards• The Finvoice standard was not implemented strictly enough in the beginning• Separate bank network initially supporting only Finvoice• Too radical attempt to eliminate use of attachments in Finvoice standard.• International work should have started earlier © 2010 Tieto Corporation 11/01/12
  13. 13. What we would do differently now:internationally• Wrong order in SEPA payments first - e-invoicing later – despite our protests…• Direct debit should be part of e-Invoicing• Global aspects should be taken into account from the start © 2010 Tieto Corporation 11/01/12
