"Public awareness of electronic invoicing should be promoted and consumers should be encouraged to take e-invoices into use", states the final report of an e-invoicing working group appointed by Ms Suvi Lindén, Minister of Communications.

The working group encourages cooperation between e-invoice operators, banks, and other service providers in terms of informing about the service.

Communications Minister Lindén believes that e-invoicing significantly promotes electronic services. She underlines the importance of the government guideline to use electronic purchase invoices by the end of 2009.

"Introducing e-invoicing in public administration is an important step forward and we need to ensure the implementation of the system. SMEs, consumers and municipalities should strive for the same goal", Lindén says.
