Digitalise your business with InvoiceNow — a nationwide E-invoicing network that enables smoother invoicing and faster payment cycles while making a positive impact on the environment. The Nationwide E-Invoicing Network adopts the Peppol framework allowing businesses to transact internationally with other linked companies.
In conjunction with Nationwide E-Invoicing Initiative, GS1 Singapore is embarking on InvoiceNow which you are able to receive your invoice in a more efficient manner in 2021. We encourage our members to be on board. Paper invoices and statement will be phased out and we will require members to update their email addresses. To get you prepared, we will still send you the paper invoice on January 2021 if you have not joined the initiative. Moving forward, the e-invoice will be sent via Peppol.
