E-invoicing has finally arrived in Australia. This means businesses of all sizes are now able to:
The Australian Government is on board saying, “we are working with the software industry to use the Pan-European Public Procurement On-Line (PEPPOL) standard which is internationally established.” To sweeten the deal, e-invoices issued to the Government will be paid within 5 days (and if they’re late, they’ll pay interest). This is your opportunity to leverage this unique situation and demonstrate industry leadership.
* The New Zealand Government is on board too. They will pay E-invoices in 10 days (from 1 July 2020).
E-invoicing is an automated direct exchange of invoices between accounting software systems, removing the need for manual invoice creation and paper and PDF invoices.
PEPPOL is the international standard for e-invoicing. Like many technology frameworks, creating bespoke integrations can be time consuming and problematic.
Here are some of the things developers and business leaders must address when developing for PEPPOL:
Promis is the ‘invisible engine’ that enables you to offer e-invoicing services without having to worry about complicated PEPPOL specifications.
Promis handles all PEPPOL translation differences such as rounding, number of decimal places, GST calculations, and discount handling. Whatever your data format is, we’ll translate it into the PEPPOL framework and connect you with a certified access point, so your users can send and receive E-invoices.
Planning your move into e-invoicing is as important as any technical implementation procedure. The Promis planning process is designed to ensure you and your users get the best experience from e-invoicing. During our planning process, we’ll discuss the following with you:
As soon as your implementation is complete, your users can send and receive E-invoices simply and easily. And you are able to reap the benefits of PEPPOL and the e-invoicing system, without investing thousands of hours in development time.
Aidacare, one of Australia’s largest Healthcare Equipment and Service providers, operates from 23 locations and 50 distribution partner locations. Aidacare currently sends approximately 150,000 to 200,000 invoices per annum, so process improvement in this space was a key goal for the organisation.
One of Aidacare’s major customers, a large Aged-Care provider, asked them to start sending their invoices in a structured data format rather than a PDF.
Problems had arisen due to the customers AP Automation which couldn’t read all the data on the PDF’s requiring human intervention, slowing things down and creating additional manual tasks. E-invoicing removes the need for intervention in cases like this, thereby increasing efficiencies and turnaround times for payment.
In collaboration with the authorised access point, Ozedi, and Aidacare’s accounts payable solution, Basware, we have provided an elegant solution built right into Aidacare’s ERP.
As of 13 August 2019, the very first Trans-Tasman four-corner model for e-invoicing has been live in production and Aidacare has been sending e-invoices to the first of their major customers.
This is a significant improvement for Aidacare and a milestone for the e-invoicing project in Australia. It is one giant leap towards a future-focused e-business world. Aidacare has helped to roll out e-invoicing and are supporting all their customers who are interested in increasing productivity and gaining critical business efficiencies.
Promis was born from the power of automation. Why should you manually process invoices when you don’t have to?
Invoicing data exists digitally in the supplier accounting system, and it needs to end up digitally in the client accounting system. Why waste time interpreting pdf documents? And why should Accounting Software Suppliers be asked to learn PEPPOL individually? Promis leverages technology and automation to save you money, time, and headaches.
The Promis platform was passionately created by a team of accounting tech developers and entrepreneurs with 40 years of combined experience in the online accounting space.
Lead by visionary Alexander Kohl, the Promis team has significant experience across multiple tech platforms, including an accounting platform conversion service with over 100,000 conversions already completed.
Alexander and his team are already receiving praise for their work in simplifying e-invoicing for Accounting System Providers and businesses.
Wendy is our Marketing Director. Wendy makes sure every accounting platform knows how Promis can help them.

Neil is our Lead Developer. Neil fine-tunes our code so that it is a pleasure for other developers to work with the Promis API.
The rest of our business runs really smoothly but the accounting side was quite clunky and a nightmare to be frank. Promis has made all the difference. Now we can go to our customers and help streamline their processes too.
