At today’s session, the Government of Serbia adopted three decrees in the areas arising from the Law on Electronic Invoicing, the application of which will benefit citizens and the economy by using e-invoices, the Office for Cooperation with the Media said in a statement.
The session adopted the Decree on the conditions and manner of using the invoice management system, the Decree on the conditions and manner of storing and making available electronic invoices and the manner of ensuring the authenticity and integrity of paper invoices and the Decree on the procedure and conditions for granting and revoking consent.
The introduction of the electronic invoicing system is, as it is stated, part of the structural reforms that will contribute to the improvement of the business environment by introducing a new fiscalization model and switching to electronic invoicing.
The phased introduction of the obligation to issue and receive electronic invoices is planned, starting from January 1, 2022, from when public sector entities will have to receive and store electronic invoices and issue them to other public sector entities.
Electronic invoicing is, as it is stated, the best solution and an example of good practice in the countries of the European Union.
The use of the electronic invoice system will be free of charge and will provide greater legal security in the areas of their delivery, receipt and storage, and at the same time contribute to the acceleration of the work and business process.
E-invoices will save time needed to work with invoices, as the need to issue, receive and store them on paper disappears, while time savings will be achieved by searching electronic invoices for less time than searching paper ones.
The Government has adopted the Program for the Reform of the Local Self-Government System in Serbia for the period from 2021-2025 which will be implemented in phases and which envisages improving the functioning of local self-government through decentralization of state administration and strengthening the capacity of cities and municipalities for efficient implementation of public affairs, establishing inter-municipal cooperation and applying the principles of good governance, Danas reports.
