Update on France’s planned CTCs and e-invoicing mandates – the dates have moved.

On 15th September 2021, France’s council of ministers announced that their planned e-invoicing and e-reporting mandates are now to be rolled out between 2024 and 2026. When we published our June update, the planned schedule was 2023-2025. This means that companies can enjoy a little longer to update their systems and processes. Read on for an overview of what has changed.

Sending e-invoices within the B2B sector in France will become compulsory in stages between 2024 and 2026. Exactly when depends on the size of the company. See figure 1, below, for when your company will be affected.

However, from 1st July 2024, ALL companies, regardless of size or whether they’re public or private, must be able to receive electronic invoices.

The new roll out plan for the CTC e-invoicing and e-reporting mandate for the French B2B sector:

Both electronic invoicing for domestic transactions between taxable entities in the B2B sector and e-reporting of transactions for B2C and international B2B will now become compulsory 18 months later than originally announced.

For full details on how continuous transaction controls (CTCs), B2B e-invoicing and e-reporting are going to be implemented in France, take a look at our detailed blog post of 24th June 2021 and our introductory post of 27th January 2020.
