  • E-reporting involves electronically reporting invoice data to authorities in real-time or periodically.
  • While invoices can still be issued in any format, they must be reported to the tax authorities within a certain timeframe.
  • Roger Haenen discusses the advantages and disadvantages of e-invoicing and e-reporting, as well as the role of fiscalists in implementing these processes.
