Submission - Supporting business adoption of electronic invoicing Consultation Paper

Whilst we applaud and support the modernisation agenda from Government to assist businesses in harnessing new technologies effectively, the rapid proposed move to eInvoicing for large businesses will involve considerable changes to existing IT systems which are timely and costly to implement.

Given the COVID related skills shortage, and the myriad suite of regulatory reforms underway while the industry is still recovering from the economic disruption, any introduction of a Business eInvoicing Right (BER) should be undertaken by a phased approach, over a longer timeframe.
