In view of the new normal, timely payments from your customers is a crucial factor in ensuring sufficient cash flow for business sustainability. One such solution is for business to adopt the Nationwide E-Invoicing Framework (Peppol) will help you get paid faster.
Singapore is amongst countries who have adopted Peppol as their e-Invoicing framework, including others such as Australia, New Zealand and many others in Europe too. Peppol facilitates a standardised B2B & B2G e-invoice exchange which eliminates human errors (i.e. data entry or checking of OCR accuracy) associated with our traditional method of invoicing (paper based or digital files). This in turn helps reduce delays in the invoice processing lead time and speeds up the payment from your customers.
Peppol promotes secured transmission of invoice data in a standard format that is easily recognisable by any businesses regardless of the location and types of accounting system used. The common standard would allow quicker validation and payment.
