Italy FatturaPA Solution From S4FN
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. 471/1997 will apply.
SAP Solution from 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.
