Basware becomes an acknowledged Peppol service provider in Japan

On 13 September, Basware received acknowledgment as a Peppol Service Provider from the Digital Agency of Japan. Learn more about this accomplishment in this blog.

In September 2021, the Digital Agency became a member of the international organisation (OpenPeppol) that manages the international standard specifications for electronic invoices called Peppol and is working to develop standard specifications for Japanese digital invoices based on Peppol. Full-scale. Currently, a standard specification called "JP PINT" has been formulated and released.

Peppol International Invoicing Model (PINT) is an international Peppol BIS 3.0 format. This version has been created to meet international requirements and allows local-specific requirements.

In July 2020, the E-invoice Promotion Association (EIPA) was established to develop and promote a standard e-invoice specification. EIPA has been conducting different research projects and plans to build a standardised e-invoice system –in 2021 the adoption of Peppol was proposed as the new national standard. Peppol service providers will also become a critical part of the setup and have a fair share in e-invoicing businesses.
