Italian E-invoicing: Time reporting between Inflight submitted date and reached SDI date

By law in Italy all EDI invoices need to be supplied to SDI within 12 calendar days. In order to find out if this is the case it is required to have data from Inflight to query. Currently the Event data when it is requesting SDI to approve or deny the invoice (this is the moment when the invoice is officially at SDI) is currently not possible to retrieve and be able to be compared to the moment the invoice was submitted. It is Toyota Material Handing Europe's opinion that it is required to be able to show that x% of all our invoices are being supplied to SDI with the legally binding 12 calendar days. Also this data can then be used to find root causes for the ones that are NOT processed to SDI within that time limit.

What is your industry? Industrial Products
How will this idea be used?

We will use the requested data to:

  • Formally be able to report to auditors that our invoices are sent to SDI within the 12 day window

  • Use the invoices that are identified as sent after the 12 day window to find root causes for why this happens and improve together with IBM the quality of the service.
