澳大利亚计划推出电子发票新规

2016年,澳大利亚税务局在全国范围内推广电子发票标准。

而在零售业采用电子发票标准后不久,澳大利亚又推出了数字商业理事会,而该理事会的开发目的仅仅是为了建立电子发票标准化的国家框架。

据《悉尼先驱晨报》报道,本周发布的一份财政部讨论文件显示,澳大利亚和新西兰正计划联合建立一个跨地区的电子发票标准,负责监督两国的数字发票,预计可在未来10年内帮助整个行业节省300亿美元。

根据这一计划,澳大利亚税务局正在为这两个国家的企业创建一个集中查询设施,以便他们能够找到供应商的“数字地址”并直接向他们发送发票。此外,财政部的文件还支持建立一个由行业主导的非盈利机构来监督澳大利亚和新西兰的电子发票。该组织将包括由行业组织和政府任命的董事会,以帮助推进数字发票的使用。

澳大利亚小企业和家庭企业监察员Kate Carnell表示,增加使用电子发票将为企业节省不少时间和资金成本。她表示

“研究表明,处理纸质发票需要30.87美元,而每份PDF发票则需要27.97美元,每个电子发票只需9.18美元 - 这是一项重大的节省。”

此外,澳大利亚财政部还指出,使用电子发票还能帮助小企业减少错误和欺诈带来的损失。事实上,与纸质和电子邮件发票相关的诈骗活动一直层出不穷,今年澳大利亚就因“假结算”诈骗案损失了350多万美元。

 

In 2016, the Australian Tax Office pushed for a nationwide standard of electronic invoices. The retail sector’s adoption of eInvoicing standards was then followed by the launch of the Digital Business Council, which was developed for the sole purpose of creating a national framework of standardizing eInvoices.

Now, according to The Sydney Morning Herald, a Treasury discussion paper released this week outlines a plan that would have Australia and New Zealand creating a cross-Tasman body that will oversee digital invoices across both countries.

The paper revealed that the Australian Taxation Office is creating a centralized look-up facility for businesses in both countries so they can find the “digital address” of suppliers and send invoices to them directly. In addition, the Treasury paper supports the creation of “an industry-led, not-for-profit body to oversee eInvoicing in Australia and New Zealand. The organization would include a board of directors appointed by industry groups and governments” to help advance the use of digital invoicing.

Australian Small Business and Family Enterprise Ombudsman Kate Carnell said the increased use of eInvoices will save businesses both time and money.

“Research shows it costs $30.87 to process a paper invoice, $27.97 per PDF invoice and only $9.18 per eInvoice — a significant saving,” she said.

In addition, the Treasury noted that two of the potential benefits for small businesses using eInvoicing is a decrease in both error and fraud. In fact, the high incidence of scam activity related to paper and email invoices has been a major point of discussion, with more than $3.5 million lost to “false billing” scams in Australia this year.

“Paper and email-based invoicing is manually intensive and prone to human error, resulting in increased processing costs and payment times for businesses,” the Treasury said.
