European e-invoicing service providers processed more than 800 million e-invoices

840 million electronic invoices were processed and delivered to invoice receivers in 2013 by members of the European E-Invoicing Service Providers Association (EESPA), based on a set of survey results completed in June 2014. This represented a significant growth of 19 per cent over 2012 volumes of 706 million.

EESPA commissioned this first annual survey among its members as part of a continuing commitment to supporting the rapid market growth of e-invoicing and to play its part in monitoring take-up. The survey was carried out through a trusted third party on the basis of actual transaction volumes, collected on a confidential basis from individual EESPA members for the calendar years 2012 and 2013.

 

The majority of invoices processed were B2B or B2G (Business-to-Business or Business-to-Government) invoices (603 million invoices in total in 2013), although the EESPA membership also has a significant involvement in the delivery of B2C (Business-to-Consumer) invoices (237 million invoices in total in 2013).

 

“EESPA is very important organisation driving e-invoicing in the future. We are happy to see sharp growth in the number of e-invoices; it reflects the importance of the topic and in EESPA we are anxious to help customers to boost their e-invoicing”, comments Ahti Allikas, Member of the EESPA Executive Committee and Product Director, OpusCapita.
