PDF-based E-Invoicing means sending an invoice as a PDF by e-mail. The invoicing party sends its invoices to Conextrade as PDF/A files. The PDF invoices are digitally signed by Conextrade – to ensure compliance with Swiss VAT laws on the one hand, and for all countries that legally permit PDF-signed invoices (E-Invoicing International) on the other hand. The invoice recipient then receives the invoices with a PDF signature by means of a signed e-mail.
The invoicing party sends the PDF invoices to Conextrade by means of a technical interface.
Conextrade signs the PDF invoice, drafts the e-mails and signs them.
Signed PDF invoices are forwarded to the invoice recipient in a signed e-mail.
The e-mail signature authenticates the sender and guarantees that the content of the e-mail has not been changed during transmission (protection from phishing).
Virtually all invoice recipients (B2B/B2C) can be reached with this eService. The only requirement is an e-mail account.
Because sending paper-based documents is unnecessary (printing, packaging, postage, handling), you can make considerable cost savings.
By not using paper, you are making an important ecological contribution.
