Electronic invoices encourage organizations to discontinue the use of paper invoices, replacing them with a digital version of an electronically_generated tax document, which has the same legal validity as the traditional version and preserves a faithful record of all commercial transactions. In this way, the entire billing process can be administered electronically. However, it is important to remember that amount of Value Added Tax must be included on every Invoice.
Another significant benefit of invoice factoring is the professional debt collection service provided by the factoring company. The factoring company is equipped to handle debt collections professionally and efficiently, leaving your staff to focus on core activities such as creating more sales. In addition, this will reduce your costs associated with processing invoices and handling collections costs. How Invoice Factoring Works Invoice factoring is a transaction in which you sell outstanding invoices for immediate cash, instead of waiting the typical 30 days for the invoices to be paid. You receive an up_front, lump_sum payment for your invoices that's slightly less than face value. The advance payment which can be provided within as little as 24 hours is typically 70 to 90 percent of the total invoice value.
Although we know perfectly well what an invoice is, its technical definition is "a document that reflects the delivery of a product or the provision of services, along with the due date and the amount to be paid in consideration." All invoices, regardless of the way in which they are sent (whether on paper or in electronic format), must include a series of mandatory fields. Article 6 of Royal Decree number 1496, Spanish law, which regulates the content of an invoice, establishes these fields as: Invoice number. Delivery date. Sender's and recipient's legal name. Sender's and recipient's Tax ID number. Sender's and recipient's legal address. Transaction description (tax base). Tax rate. Tax amount. Date of service (if different from the delivery date)
