With the ambition to improve business efficiency and reduce tax evasion, Belgium becomes yet another country to enforce business digitalization through an e-invoicing mandate. With the Friday announcement, the Council of Ministers presented updated timelines forcing all taxpaying businesses in Belgium to issue, exchange and receive invoices electronically by 1 January 2026 latest.
The authorities plan to use Peppol as the default standard for e-invoicing but clarifies that parties can agree on using other frameworks or standards within the European Norm.
“We have followed the developments in Belgium ever since we established operations in the region and are excited about the expected acceleration in digital transformation as a result of the new plans. Pagero has been a certified Peppol provider for many years and are ready to serve Belgian as well as international customer in supporting the new mandate”, says Bengt Nilsson, CEO at Pagero
