Danish Government exchange for over 1.2 Million monthly Invoices using ebXML with UBL

The Danish government has implemented a VAN based B2G and B2B hub system with ebXML for use with electronic invoicing for Denmark. Companies are required by law to use eInvoices (EID).

The EU Best Practice Show case report states: "A condition of EID was that it should not 'force' private companies to go digital. The EID solution is independent of their IT sophistication and is highly flexible. Read-In bureaus ensure this. From 1 February, two such bureaus have been converting paper invoices to electronic ones. Smaller companies can use the Read-In bureaus free of charge, while larger ones are required to pay a modest fee to the bureaus. In April, 2006 the Read-In bureaus share of the market was about 40%".

You can read more about the system details from the EU show case white paper here :-

"Transport of the eInvoices is based on an ebMS (ebXML Message Service) enveloping mechanism built on SOAP (ISO 15000-2). This means that the addressing information, mainly the EAN number, is part of the ebMS header. In contrast to a first solution, where there was no specific envelope format and the VANS providers had to retrieve the EAN location number from within each message, this highly improved the reliability of the system".
