How to send an electronic invoice

As a supplier you need to be connected to an access point or use an invoicing portal in order to be able to send an electronic invoice.

To ensure timely payment, the invoice must contain the right references:

  • Name of the person who placed the order, and/or buyer reference number (ansvarskode)
  • Order number
  • Contract number 

Data requirements

The NPRA has certain requirements with regard to the following data elements:

  • "AccountingCustomerParty/ Party/ Contact/ID"
    This element must contain the name of the person placing the order and/or his/her buyer reference number (ansvarskode). Any individual placing an order is to provide their name (correctly spelt) and if applicable their 5-digit buyer reference number.

  • "OrderReference/ID"
    This element must contain the order number if such has been given.

  • "ContractDocumentReference/ID"
    This element must contain the contract number if such has been given.

  • "BillingReference/InvoiceDocumentReference/ID"
    This element must contain the invoice number of the invoice to be paid.

  • "AdditionalDocumentReference/Attachment/EmbeddedDocumentBinar"
    Attachments must be in PDF format. The attachment must be embedded in the XML document. 

How to get started

  1. Invoice production
    Find out if your invoicing system is able to produce invoices in the EHF format (Elektronisk Handelsformat). If not, you must make an adjustment, have your invoices converted to EHF at the access point, or use an invoicing portal.

  2. Contract with access point provider
    As the issuer of electronic invoices you must sign a contract with an access point provider.

  3. Test of data quality
    We would like you to test the compatibility of your system with ours before you send an invoice electronically. Generate a test invoice in the EHF format in your system and send it as an attachement to an e-mail to elektronisk.faktura@vegvesen.no . This is a data quality test and the invoice will not be paid.

  4. Send the invoice
    When we have confirmed that the data quality is acceptable, you can send the invoice through an access point. In order to make sure that we receive your invoices, the first few weeks we would appreciate it if you e-mail us at elektronisk.faktura@vegvesen.no, quoting the invoice numbers of the invoices you have sent.

Alternatives

If you are unable to produce electronic invoices in your own accounting system, or are unable to connect to an access point, you can use an online invoicing portal. This is a facility where you can register an invoice and have it sent correctly.
