Welcome to eInvoicing Ireland

eInvoicing Ireland is responsible for facilitating public bodies in becoming compliant with the European Directive on eInvoicing (2014/55/EU) by April 2019. The Directive obliges contracting authorities and contracting entities ‘to receive and process electronic invoices’ (eInvoices) compliant with the European Standard (EN-16931) by 18 April 2019 for Central Government and April 2020 for Sub Central Government. In collaboration with eInvoicing Ireland and its four sector partners across Central and Local Government, Health  and Education, the Office of Government Procurement (OGP) has established an ‘eInvoicing’ Framework agreement, from which public bodies can access the services and solutions needed to support them in reaching compliance. It is important to note that suppliers are NOT being mandated under this Directive to send eInvoices in Ireland at this time.

The European Commission has identified eInvoicing as a key enabler in Europe’s move towards a Digital Single Market.
