E-Invoicing has been a tool implemented already by many countries to digitize and automate processes as well as fighting VAT fraud.
With the OCVID-19 pandemie, few countries who planned digitalization of their processes as .e.g. mandatory e-invoicing have postponed their plans.
Further expansion of E-Invoicing, Real Time Reporting, etc may be one of the measures that countries may be taken as a result of the COVID-19 crisis.
