Amid Global Compliance Chaos, How Do You Keep Your E-Invoicing Processes Compliant?
Tax administrations everywhere are now mandating E-Invoicing‚ clearance to close massive VAT gaps. During this session, you will get cutting-edge analysis and predictions, and aim to answer questions such as:
• How are European and other countries outside LATAM implementing real-time or near-real- time invoice controls?
• What‘s really going on globally and what can you expect in the coming years?
• How can a company pragmatically keep up with requirements across all its current and new markets?
• What's the status on global policy initiatives to coordinate the many different real-time VAT control approaches?
Christiaan van der Valk, Vice President Strategy, Sovos, United Kingdom

Oil & Gas Use Case: Establishing an Industry-Wide E-Invoicing Deployment Model to Meet International Demands
Over the last 20 years, the oil & gas industry has coalesced around common standards and technology and deployed these globally. The industry has been able to implement tax compliant B2G E-Invoicing including bespoke connections such as the Colombian DIAN (and its associated changes), Italian FATTURA PA, Mexican CFDI, and a PEPPOL pilot. While PEPPOL has been successfully implemented on a small scale, it is questionable on whether or not it is a good fit for larger organizations and the complexity of the oil amp; gas industry.
Key takeaways:
• See how a large complex industry was able to meet different country E-Invoicing mandates in a more cost and time efficient manner
• The importance of having standards in place and how large suppliers are still able to use the current PIDX standards when connecting to different government programs
• The push to accelerate Asia-Pacific’s oil amp; gas industry’s adoption of the same eInvoicing standards
