- Receive the invoice in electronic format and match each invoice directly with its order.
- Transmit invoices using bank connection software (similar to payment materials) or through e-invoice operators who provide forwarding services.
Finvoice is a publicly available invoicing standard published by Finnish banks. It is also a forwarding service for businesses, provided by banks and payment institutions.
The Finvoice forwarding service is built around the Finvoice message format. The buyer receives the invoice in electronic format and transfers the information to its own accounting systems. Each invoice can be directly matched with its order on the basis of its reference. E-invoice data can be transmitted using bank connection software, similarly to payment materials, or through e-invoice operators who provide forwarding services.
For sample invoices, please see the Finnish Energy site (link below).
