France: Mandatory E-invoicing adopted by the Parliament

The French Finance Bill includes the roll out of e-invoicing from 1 January 2023. This will cover domestic B2B invoices initially. France imposed electronic invoicing on B2G transactions starting in 2017 in a phased approach.

Additionally, domestic B2C and cross-border sales invoicing transactional data will have to be reported (‘e-reporting’) to the French tax authorities.

Both requirements will be rolled out as follows: Jan 2023 – large enterprises Jan 2024 – mid-sized companies Jan 2025 – small companies
