In light of the evolving scenario in France, businesses, software providers, and lobby groups have expressed concerns over the imminent roll-out of the B2B (business to business) and B2C (business to consumer) e-invoicing and e-reporting systems initially slated for July 2024. Responding to these apprehensions, the French Government, through the Direction Générale des Finances Publiques (DGFIP), has announced a delay in the implementation of these systems.
An Extension Granted
In a welcome move for stakeholders, the DGFIP declared that the mandatory B2B e-invoicing and B2C e-reporting processes would be postponed for at least a year. This extension addresses the concerns surrounding the short preparation time previously available to businesses.
An Open-Ended Timeline
Interestingly, there is no specific deadline announced for the revised launch. The DGFIP and the French Parliament have taken this decision in order to diligently work with businesses during the 2024 finance law process. However, insiders indicate that January 2026 is shaping up as a likely date for the phased introduction. This will see the full system implemented over a span of two years, culminating in 2028.
Preparations Continue Unabated
Despite the delay, it’s not a time for businesses to take their foot off the pedal. The registration process for certified e-invoicing agents, including the partner dematerialisation platforms, will continue as planned. This signifies the ongoing commitment to the implementation of e-invoicing and e-reporting systems in France.
The announcement of a delay in mandatory e-invoicing and e-reporting in France offers some breathing space for businesses, allowing them more time to prepare and adapt to the upcoming changes. Yet, it’s clear that e-invoicing and e-reporting remain high on the country’s financial agenda, suggesting that businesses should continue to strategize and align themselves with the inevitable digital shift.
