Electronic invoicing with the public administration becomes mandatory in the Generalitat Valenciana six month earlier than in the rest of Spain, as of July 1st. As of this date, all suppliers (legal persons) of goods and services must use electronic billing in their commercial relations with the Regional Government and its autonomous bodies. This is stipulated in the third additional provision of Law 5/2013, published in the Diari Oficial de la Comunitat Valenciana at the end of last year.
However, in the rest of the country public sector providers will not be required to use e-invoicing until January 1, 2015. This is the legal deadline laid down in state law for implementation of the so-called Facturae, whose annual profit is estimated at 51 million euros.
