Automatic invoicing ensures that invoices are sent to your customers automatically for each time period. The invoice also gets automatically processed in your administration so that you always have a good overview of your financial administration.

What is an UBL invoice?
Once you start talking about digital invoicing, the term ‘UBL invoice’ is bound to crop up. Lots of paper invoices used to be sent out in the past, but in our digital world that happens less and less. The Dutch government has given paper and digital invoices equal standing, so you are no longer obliged to print invoices. A UBL invoice is a standard format electronic invoice. This type of file ensures that your accounting package or invoicing software can communicate directly with your customer’s so that nothing has to be input by hand. Nowadays, most government agencies require you to use UBL invoices when you work for them.
