Latvia’s New E-Invoicing Regulations: What Businesses Need to Know

  • Latvia’s Ministry of Finance has introduced updates to e-invoicing regulations to curb the shadow economy and promote economic development
  • Mandatory e-invoicing will be implemented in two phases, starting with B2G transactions in 2025 and expanding to B2B transactions in 2026
  • Continuous Transaction Controls (CTC) regime for B2B transactions will enhance VAT compliance and require structured electronic invoices
  • Decentralized CTC regime allows flexibility in invoice transmission methods, such as e-address TA solution or PEPPOL network
  • Businesses must comply with technical requirements, such as using Peppol BIS format for e-invoicing by 2025 and archiving invoices for specified periods
  • To prepare for the transition, businesses should update accounting systems, train staff, and ensure compliance with new regulations.
