全面推广电子化,FCA要求使用纸质发票企业自担成本

据统计,目前英国约有85%的公司目前正在使用网上发票系统,但仍然约有8000家企业采取纸质发票。

近日,英国金融行为监管局(Financial Conduct Authority,后文简称FCA)对外表示,正在考虑对那些不通过网上系统接收发票的公司收取行政费用,收费标准为每年50至100英镑,其中包括纸质材料服务成本。同时他们提醒称,随着接收纸质发票的企业数量下降以及现有的规模经济效应不再明显,这个收费标准可能会提高。

这项规则拟从2019到2020财年开始执行。监管层认为,专门为一小部分企业提供纸质发票服务是低效、昂贵且费时的。此外,不通过网上系统收取发票的公司还会收到邮寄其他费用的信件,包括不收费的提醒信和信用票据,这进一步增加了FCA的成本,降低了FCA的工作效率,因为相关人员需要手动记录这些信件。

因此FCA表示,希望继续接受"人工服务"的公司自己承担成本。

对该提案的相关建议可于2018年1月15日前寄达FCA。

The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) is considering whether to charge firms an administrative fee if they choose not to receive its invoices by way of an online system.

The regulator has proposed that all fee-payers receive their invoices through its online invoicing system or else pay a fee, from 2019/20, arguing a paper service for a small percentage of firms is inefficient, expensive and time-consuming.

The FCA revealed around 85% of authorised firms are currently using its online invoicing system but this, it said, still left some 8,000 businesses receiving paper invoices.

It added: "Paper invoicing for a small percentage of firms requires a separate process to be in place which is inefficient. Printing and distributing 8,000 invoices as well as the associated paper and postage costs is expensive and time-consuming.

"In addition, firms that are not online receive other fees correspondence by post, including reminder letters for non-payment of fees and credit notes, further increasing our costs and making us less efficient as we need to manually record these."

The FCA said it believed firms that wanted to continue receiving the "manual service" should shoulder the cost themselves rather than expecting others to do so as well.

The watchdog suggested that an annual fee of between £50 and £100 should cover the costs for the paper service but warned this was likely to increase as the number of firms receiving invoices declined and any existing economies of scale were eroded.

Comments on the proposals can be sent to the FCA up to 15 January 2018.
