Invoice Delivery Service

The most important benefits of exchanging electronic invoices are cost and time savings. According to a study, the invoice sender saves 6.60 EUR per invoice, as printing and shipping costs can be avoided.

The invoice recipient even saves 11.20 EUR per invoice, because of a faster and more correct invoice processing. An annual growth rate of 20% confirms: e-invoices are on the advance Europe-wide (source: Billentis, 2016, „E-Invoicing / E-Billing“).

Quick Access Video

Watch our Quick Access Video to get a brief overview of the SEEBURGER Invoice Delivery Service.


The E-Invoicing law from December 1, 2016 puts the European directive 2014/55/EU into practice. The following institutions will be obligated to receive and process electronic invoices:

  • All federal ministries and constitutional bodies from November 27th, 2018
  • All other public clients (e.g. municipalities etc.) from November 27th, 2019

Given the fact that between 45% and 65% of all companies within a country are a supplier of the public sector, it is only a matter of time until delivering electronic invoices is common practice.

The Cloud based SEEBURGER Invoice Delivery Service allows you already today to deliver electronic invoices securely to your customers.

The service can easily be connected to your invoice system and supports the formats PDF, ZUGFeRD and XRechnung. ZUGFeRD is the European hybrid format for electronic invoices. We receive your invoice data in the SEEBURGER Cloud and automatically convert it into ZUGFeRD, PDF or XRechnung documents. We provide your customer with these documents via email – as an MFT download link or as an attachment. Once your customers have signed up for the SEEBURGER Cloud, they can view and download the invoices in the invoice receipt of the app “Invoices” provided specifically for your customers.
