The Finance Act 2008 introduced in Italy mandatory electronic invoicing (e-invoicing) for supplies rendered to Public Administrations (PAs).
The e-invoicing legislation prevents government PAs from accepting and paying paper invoices.
The legislation also provides for the setup of an Electronic Exchange System (EES) to centrally manage the e-invoicing process with the PAs.
Electronic invoices to be issued to PAs must be structured in a standard XML (eXtensible Markup Language) format. The authenticity of origin and the integrity of the content are guaranteed through a certified electronic signature or a digital signature.

The mandatory e-invoicing regime for government PAs is regarded by taxpayers as the first step in a significant change, aimed at the full integration and centralisation of the whole national administrative process.
The new e-invoicing and e-archiving requirements with VAT professionals will impact on the business processes of every sector.
Promofarma is a subsidiary of Federfarma (association of Italian pharmacies) focused on pharmaceutical products sales data collection and on the web site management of www.federfarma.it. Promofarma analyses sales data to determine profitability and trends on national pharmaceutical product expenses; they also provide technological services to Federfarma.
The Electronic Invoicing project delivers a full invoicing service to thousands of Italian pharmacies based on Gestione Archivi and the Ifin Sistemi platform. Qwince designed, implemented and runs an integrated platform able to link the pharmacies’ identification system (SSO) with the electronic invoicing platform powered by IFIN.
The project extention included also the design and implementation of a new system to communicate sales data to the PAs, so called “730 precompilato”. Using this new system, the pharmacies and the local associations of Federfarma are able to send to Sogei the receipts (sales data) to contribute to the citizens’ self-assessment.
Qwince designed and implemented both the national system and a regional one (Regione Lombardia).
