France will implement e-invoicing and e-reporting obligations, starting from July 2024. The French model, known as the Y-model, is a hybrid between centralised distribution and a decentralised access-point model.
Kofax’s actions in preparation for this mandate:
- Kofax will apply to become a PDP (Plateforme dematérialisation Partenaire) for both sales and purchase invoices. All PDP’s must be certified and audited by the French government. We expect to receive our PDP Number (Numéro d’immatriculation) by July 2023.
- Kofax will also apply to be part of the pilot scheme for this mandate that will be conducted by the DGFIP (French Tax Office) between January and June 2024
- As a certified PDP, Kofax will develop compliant solutions for both e-invoicing and e-reporting. We will also establish a connection with the Central Directory (Annuaire) in addition to connecting with the Public Portal (PPDF) and other PDP operators in the country.
- Kofax is already working with our partners to establish an ecosystem of Dematerialisation Operators (OD: Opérateur Dematerialisation) to be ‘plug-in ready’ for buyers and suppliers once this mandate goes live.
