Slovenian government and business sector working together in EU Connecting European Facility Action

Slovenian government and business sector working together in EU Connecting European Facility Action for compatible system of EN 16931 and eSLOG 2.0 eInvoice receipt.

Slovenian obligors for public procurements are getting such exchange hub for eInvoices which will enable them to receive eInvoice in European standard, a requirement of the newly adopted Directive 2014/55/EU on eInvoicing.

The technical solution in the form of upgraded single entry and exit point is being implemented by the Public Payments Administration of the Republic of Slovenia for public procurement obligors, which are budget users. A brand new exchange hub is designed by ZZI d.o.o. for contracting authorities and contracting entities, which are not budget users, under the patronage of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Slovenia. Both solutions will be compatible, following the same concept of functioning and will thus be establishing a common system, taking into account interfaces with ERP providers who service both budget users as well as obligors who are not budget users. Both solutions will translate UN/CEFACT CII and UBL 2.1 syntax eInvoice into the new EN 16931 compliant Slovenian standard eSLOG 2.0 and will ensure visualisation of 2.0 eInvoice. In the transitional period, technical solutions will also generate conversions of eSLOG 2.0 eInvoice into eSLOG 1.6 eInvoice, which will ensure easier and smoother transition into novelties.
