The Belgian government decided, on the first of January 2013, that all paper- and electronic invoices are equal. This new law unravels a major reformation in the way we approach invoices. Apparently it’s no longer necessary to send a paper invoice. Instead you can send an electronic invoice. The most important question we have to ask ourselves is : does electronic invoices have more benefits than paper invoices and is it wise to have this reformation and make the change to electronic invoices ???
Well we think it is definitely worth trying!
Below you will find a list of advantages on electronic invoices.
1. The first advantage is the speed
Customers will receive their electronic invoices faster than paper invoices. It is no longer necessary to print all the invoices and put them into envelops. For an average company, that sends 4000 invoices per year, the average time of progressing paper invoices takes about 2 hours a month. That’s very time consuming task and it is avoidable. If you use electronic invoices, an average company will save 3 days of work a year.
2. The second advantage is the sustainability and the price
When you apply electronic invoices, you can reduce the cost and the use of paper. Mainly because you avoid printing invoices. For an average company, this means that you can save a tree every two years. Another important issue is that you will lose the cost of ink and paper. Sending e-mails is free and fast!
3. The third advantage is the efficiency and the safety
When you work with an automated invoicing progress the chance of errors, made by man is strongly reduced. Besides there is no risk that the letter is lost by the post delivery system.
This means that working with an automated invoicing process is much more efficient.
Now that you ran over the benefits of electronic invoices, you want to use the system yourself.
