E-invoicing compliance and regulatory updates - Latvia

Electronic Invoicing Latvia

Latvia transposed the EU Directive 2014/55/EU making receiving and processing electronic invoices mandatory for central, regional, and local authorities.

Latvia operates a post-audit model with no specific requirement on e-invoices. However, I&A shall be guaranteed from the point of issuance until the end of the storage period. Via qualified electronic signatures, business controls can ensure an audit trail linking an invoice to a supplier and proper EDI. Peppol is also available.

It is expected that Latvia will make e-invoicing mandatory for Business-to-Government (B2G) and Business-to-Business (B2B) in 2025. The country will likely require taxpayers to use the Peppol Network.

Invoices must be stored from the year they are received plus another 10 years.

Storage abroad is allowed as long as online access is guaranteed. Basware provides compliant invoice archiving in Latvia through the Basware Vault service.

Interoperability

At Basware, we are passionate about delivering the benefits of open interoperability to our customers. That’s why we have partnered with more than 220 e-invoicing networks around the world to ensure the Basware Network remains the largest open commerce network of buyers and suppliers.

Our advice

Latvia allows various invoicing methods, such as paper, PDF, electronic, and portal key-in invoices.

Electronic invoicing is becoming more common and, as a result, suppliers are able to send, and customers are able to receive, these true electronic invoices.

Adequate enablement campaigns can result in high levels of true electronic invoices. We advise both invoice receivers and invoice senders to reach out to their customer/supplier base and discuss the possibility to deliver invoices electronically. This will drive cost reduction, increased automation and improved collaboration. Our experts are here to support you in your e-invoicing transformation.
