What is Peppol and why does it matter?
Peppol is a common global framework for the cross-border exchange of electronic business documents. It is an entire set of rules and technical specifications to harmonise electronic business document formats and transmission standards. Peppol’s level of sophistication is in fact so high that across the globe many countries implement compulsory electronic invoicing (e-invoicing) mandates & regulations based on the Peppol framework’s technical foundation. Peppol connectivity is a central business and compliance requirement for any organisation working across borders.
How Basware can help
Being able to connect to the Peppol Network is a must for many organisations and will only become more relevant moving forward as Peppol adoption rises across the globe. As an official Peppol Access Point, the Basware Network enables your organisation to connect to Peppol and transact with your buyers and suppliers seamlessly.

Today, there are many local invoicing and procurement requirements and recommendations all around the world, and Peppol plays an important role. Sooner or later, many globally active organisations encounter Peppol access as a requirement when connecting to buyers or suppliers.

Across the globe, more and more countries are imposing specific regulations around e-invoicing to enforce VAT compliance and encourage organisations to adopt e-invoicing. Many countries trust Peppol’s technical specifications to impose their mandates:

Official Peppol Access Point & Developer
In fact, Basware has been a central part of Peppol development efforts since its very beginning. Going back to the late 2000s, Basware was the first official access point that sent the very first live transaction in the Peppol Network. Ever since, Basware has been an integral part in further developing and improving the Peppol Network, with the strategic goal of delivering compliant global B2B & B2G connectivity to our customers.
As an Access Point software implementer for the Peppol Access Points in the Oxalis Community I probably know better than most how important it is to have a resilient access system into the Peppol Network - it is a foundational aspect.
Peppol E-invoice Sending
With the Basware Network at your side, your Accounts Receivable department can rest assured when it comes to delivering Peppol compliant e-invoices to your entire customer base.

Peppol E-invoice Receiving
With Basware you can ensure 100% supplier connectivity and receive all of your invoices in all relevant invoice formats in one place – completely paperless and without manual processes. Your organisation can trust the Basware Network to receive all invoices.

Peppol can also be used to support procurement initiatives. These abilities span not only from the practice of finding suppliers already working to Peppol standards, but also in terms of supporting compliance and ensuring that order messaging and content exchange is sent over secure and standardised networks.
While Peppol is not an e-procurement platform, its framework can be adopted into existing e-procurement solutions and e-business exchange services helping to reduce manual work and supplier onboarding.
Peppol enables secure communications between businesses and buyers throughout the procurement process meaning that all interaction is stored and streamlined, giving you access and insights into more of your data.
