As a reminder, the mandatory electronic invoicing requirement will be activated for all taxpayers, starting from January 1, 2024. All remaining businesses with a turnover not exceeding €25,000 per annum are included within the SdI e-invoicing obligations from 1 January 2024. 

Italy was the first country in the Union to implement e-invoicing use for B2B and B2G transactions, even before the implementation of the European Directive 2014/55/EU which established mandatory e-invoice reception for public administrations.

  • B2G e-invoicing is mandatory since 2014 (2015 for sub-central administrations).
  • B2B and B2C e-invoicing is mandatory since January 2019.

The electronic invoice is mandatory for public administrations and private companies administrations under the Fattura PA model (XML).
