Send and receive invoices to and from Italy through the SDI integration

In 2019, Italy became the first country in the world to make electronic invoicing mandatory for B2G and B2B transactions. From 01/01/2022 on digital invoicing to and from Italy is done with invoices in a FatturaPA format via the SDI (Sistema di interscambio) on which you must be registered as a company to be able to send and receive invoices. Billit is certified by the Agenzia delle Entrate to serve as an intermediary for sending and receiving invoices through the SDI. Thanks to the SDI integration your company is automatically registered in the SDI, your invoices are automatically converted into the right format and you can simply send and receive invoices from and to Italy from your familiar Billit environment.

To send an invoice to an Italian customer, you need the following info received from your customer (without this information, the invoice cannot be sent correctly):

Codice Destinatario: the IPA-code or Codice Destinatario, this is the digital address on which your customer is registered. Fill in this code in the PO-number case.

PEC: the Posta Elettronica certificata or e-mail certificat is an e-mail system used to send e-mails in Italy with a binding legal value.Use this adress as your customers e-mail adress (in the customer file).

Codice Univoco Ufficio: You need this code if you want to send invoices to an Italian government department. You do not need it for B2B transactions. Fill in this code in the PO-number case instead of the 'Codice Destinario'.

When the integration is activated (see: How do I install this integration?) the button 'Send via Peppol' will be replaced by the button 'Send via SDI' when the recipient of your invoice has an Italian VAT number.

Q: How do I create an invoice for an Italian company via API?

A: To add and send invoices via the Order API, you will need to add the Codice Destinatario and PEC via custom Fields before the invoice can be sent correctly.
