Upgrade of the Slovenian national eInvoicing standard eSLOG 1.6 to 2.0

As part of this activity, a new version of the eSLOG standard 2.0, which complies with the European standard EN 16931, has been prepared.  An XML schema of the new standard and a mapping table between eSLOG 2.0 and eSLOG 1.6 has been prepared. Mapping tables for eSLOG 2.0 and various eInvoicing syntaxes are also prepared (CEFACT CII, UBL 2.1). Prepared documentation for eSLOG 2.0 is available  in Slovenian and English for software solution and services providers to enable integration of the new eSLOG standard into their solutions.
