Electronic invoicing, or e-invoicing, is exchanging an electronic invoice document, transmitting, receiving, and processing it electronically. It is digital throughout its entire life cycle. Hence, it offers cost savings and increased efficiencies in a business-to-business (B2B) environment, and that value extends to both buyers and sellers.
In an era driven by computer and communication technology, as millions of companies move forward to take advantage of the benefits offered by e-invoices, standards are needed to ensure complete interoperability of e-invoices so that once generated, any software can read them.
Out of the many data formats for e-invoices, the ZUGFeRD standard has become increasingly established in German-speaking and EU countries. Hence, GrapeCity Documents API for PDF (GcPdf) can now be used (with the help of the ZUGFeRD-csharp package) to create or load ZUGFeRD-compliant invoices (in c#).
