Facturae to include new e-invoicing format version 3.2.2

Actualización esquema facturae 3.2.2

The format of Facturae e-invoicing with Public Administrations in Spain is due to undergo a change in XML schema to the new version 3.2.2, as published in the Resolution of August 24, 2017 by the Secretary of State for Information Society and Digital Agenda and the Secretaries of State for Finance and Budgets and Expenses. This version is not mandatory for all Facturae users, only those providers that need to send the information that it adds must implement it.

This resolution comes into effect in relations between the Administration and its suppliers six months after its publication in the Official State Gazette. This new version that will coexist with the current 3.2 and 3.2.1.

This modification requires a change in the XML schema used for e-invoicing with public administrations in Spain. Facturae version 3.2.2 includes new data to be implemented by technology providers who require it, so the invoice reception platforms will have to adapt to support this format.

The rollout of mandatory e-invoicing in Spanish public administrations gives rise to new needs and requires certain adjustments to make it easier to use for suppliers and administrations. The new features in Facturae version 3.2.2 are:

1.Inclusion of specific labels for:

  • collecting payments in kind,
  • general invoice description,
  • date of issue of corrected invoices.

2.The contract file reference can be entered at invoice level when the bill refers to a single contract or order.
3.A new unit, the kilowatt hour (KWh), is added to the unit types table.
4.HTML format is added to those accepted for documents attached to the invoice.
5.New fields are included to identify the e-reference of credit assignment documents derived from the invoice, both for the powers of attorney in representation and the transfer agreement per se, which will not need to be attached to the invoice if the Administration or other recipient of the invoice is able to consult them electronically in order, where indicated, to attach them to the expense file.
