Regardless of the method used, the sender and recipient of invoices must archive electronic invoices for at least 10 years in compliance with auditing requirements, i.e. in an unalterable memory pursuant to §14 of the Value Added Tax Act, Fiscal Code resp. the principles of data access and auditing of digital documents (German GDPdU) as well as the principles of proper computerised accounting systems (German GoBS). A hardcopy does not suffice.
The installation of an electronic archiving system requires significant investments. Six-digit investments come together quickly for respective hardware and software solutions. These can be prevented if you outsource archiving to e-integration. We retain your data through a reliable individual interface and store it in a secure and certified server environment.
