Italy FatturaPA Solution From S4FN

The Budget Law 2018 (the ‘Budget Law’) was published in the Official Gazette on 29 December 2017 and came into force on 1 January 2018. With this law, many new VAT measures have been announced. One of them is an E-Invoicing extension. As of 1 January 2019, e-invoicing will become mandatory for all B2B and B2C supplies of goods and services between parties established or VAT-registered in Italy (in the case of B2C if the customer expressly requests an invoice).

E-invoices will have to be issued:
— through the ‘Sistema di Intercambio’ system (‘SdI’), which is the platform currently used to transmit e-invoices to public bodies and which will allow the Italian Revenue Agency to automatically collect details of e-invoices;
— in the ‘Fattura PA’ format(3), which is the only one currently admitted, although different formats based on European standards might be allowed in the future if introduced by decree. Should e-invoices not comply with the above conditions, they will be treated as not having been issued and the (heavy) penalties imposed by article 6 of Legislative Decree no. 4711997 will apply.

SAP Solution from S4FN

S4FN has both cloud integrated and E2E solution for FatturaPA Italy e-Invoicing.

The below example illustrates the transfer of an invoice to FatturaPA using Web Service via S4FN. Invoices are being automatically created in the ERP system and sent to SdI system using SAP communcation objects. This can be done with any SOAP protocol which SdI webservice accepts. The invoices converted to XML format which is FatturaPA. S4FN extracts invoices from SAP, maps it to the FatturaPA format and transfers it using Web Service via SdI.

Italy FAtturaPA Solution Architecture

The SdI Web Service sends a response back, which can be rejection or acception. A rejection response is sent when, for example, the data in the invoice was incomplete or the wrong recipient ID was entered. If SdI sends an acception response back, this means that the invoice was received correctly from a technical point of view. This doesn’t mean yet, that the customer accepted or processed it. Another message is sent back when customer recives the invoice. When accepted SdI returns an SdI ID to follow the invoice through SdI system.

The SdI service forwards the invoice to customer. As soon as the invoice has been received by the customer, a positive acknowledgement is returned to the SAP. If after 15 days the invoice has not been received by the recipient, the SdI service sends automatically an expiration note.Upon receiving this note invoice should be sent to customer with anoy other medium.

S4FN can upon reception updates the status of the invoices in SAP in S4FN Invoice Monitor, allowing the user follow the reception and processing status of the invoice.
