Mandatory e-invoicing postponed in Greece to July 2021

Originally, Greece had planned to make e-invoicing and e-book reporting obligatory in October 2020. It will now be further postponed to 1 July 2021.

Greece to further delay e-invoicing  until July 2021

Due to Covid-19 complications, Greece has announced that mandatory e-invoices and e-books would be delayed again. The intended implementation date is 1 July 2021. Companies who took action and were prepared for the previous deadlines may start submitting their e-invoices now, however it will not be obligatory until the postponed date. Data that was generated during the first half of 2021 can be submitted until October 2021.

Other countries that have introduced  similar tax technology obligations include Spain, Hungary, Italy, and Portugal. In light of this, Marosa has developed software that integrates directly with your current systems to make real-time reporting as quick and easy as possible.
