Australia’s Revision of Peppol PINT: A Comprehensive Overview


Australia is making significant strides in modernizing its financial systems, with a key focus on the revision of Peppol PINT. This article provides an in-depth look at these changes and their implications for businesses.

The History of E-Invoicing and Peppol PINT in Australia

E-invoicing in Australia has a short but impactful history. The Australian government first introduced e-invoicing in 2019 as part of its Digital Business Plan. The goal was to streamline business transactions, reduce costs, and improve payment times.

The Australian Taxation Office (ATO) partnered with the New Zealand government to establish the Australia and New Zealand Electronic Invoicing Board (ANZEIB). The board was tasked with overseeing the adoption of the Peppol e-invoicing framework across both countries.

Since then, e-invoicing has steadily gained traction in Australia. Many businesses have adopted e-invoicing to improve efficiency, reduce errors, and speed up payments. The recent revision of Peppol PINT is the latest development in this ongoing journey.

What is Peppol PINT?

Peppol is an interoperability framework that allows businesses to send and receive invoices electronically. It is designed to streamline the invoicing process, reduce errors, and improve efficiency. Peppol PINT (Peppol International Invoice) became available for use on the Peppol network with effect from 1 July 2023. PINT is an invoice model used as a template for creating globally interoperable invoice specifications.
