Electronic invoice (e-invoice)
An electronic invoice (e-invoice) is an electronic transaction document that contains payment information. There are two different types of e-invoices:
1) electronic commercial invoices in an agreed format that makes it possible for the data to be processed automatically. Suppliers and recipients may send them to one another directly or by using service providers or an electronic banking service system;
2) e-invoices in an electronic format that is not suitable for automatic processing (e.g. e-mail letters, PDF, TIF, JPEG or other types of documents attached to e-mail letters).
