e-Invoice entered into force on 05.03.2010 with the notification of Tax Procedure Law number 397. e-Invoice has the same attributes as the paper invoice, but is an electronic official document by GIB (Revenue Administration) which allows documentary communication between the seller and the buyer to be carried out on a central platform.
e-Invoice, managed by GIB is a secure system between parties that saves time and money. GIB chose a language that has many uses in practice and internationally as well.
