Sending invoices to the authorities?
Do you invoice goods or services to the authorities? Then you will be familiar with the concept of e-invoicing. Ever more public authorities are requiring their suppliers to send them e-invoices in UBL format using the PEPPOL network. Billit is the largest PEPPOL access point in Belgium. You can easily send your e-invoice through Billit to the access point of the authority or company that you are invoicing (Mercurius in Belgium, Chorus in France). The link with Billit means Teamleader customers can now also use our access point to send their e-invoices through PEPPOL. Sales invoices that are created in Teamleader are automatically displayed in Billit, from where you can send them through the PEPPOL network by clicking on the green PEPPOL button. But there’s more!

Which licence should I choose?
You can try Billit free-of-charge for 15 days. Then you can choose a licence that is tailored to your company. We also have a special discounted connect licence for Teamleader customers.

Q: The various departments in my company each use their own sales and purchase ledgers. How do I ensure that my invoices end up in the sales and purchase ledger of the right department?
A: You need to create different Billit accounts. Link the right department with the right account.
Q: I created an invoice in Teamleader but it does not immediately appear in Billit.
A: This may happen when the link between Billit and Teamleader was not established using the login of the main user in Teamleader. The invoice that was created in Teamleader will only appear in Billit the next day. We therefore recommend using the login details of the main user in Teamleader to establish the link between Billit and Teamleader.
Q: If I make changes to an invoice in Teamleader, will these changes be reflected in my invoice in Billit?
A: Yes, they will. Any changes to an invoice in Teamleader will also be synced to Billit. However, the changes will only appear in Billit the next day if the link between Billit and Teamleader was not established by the main user in Teamleader.
Q: What happens when I click on ‘Sync again’ under ‘Settings’ > ‘Integrations’ > ‘Teamleader’?
A: This will result in a complete resyncing of Billit with Teamleader. Any invoices that were created in Teamleader before the date that you entered when you originally synced Billit with Teamleader will also appear in Billit.
