Buyer Information

How public bodies enrol in eInvoicing

A public body's first action must be to make contact with the Scottish Government eInvoicing Team to have an initial discussion to identify readiness to introduce an eInvoicing solution to your organisation. The initial communication will be to provide information on the eInvoicing solution, identify technical requirements, current invoice process, supplier on-boarding, Service Definition Document (SDD) - Validation Rules and next steps.

The Scottish Government or relevant public body will provide support and guidance to suppliers throughout the adoption, configuration and live transacting phase.
