Greece myDATA​

As of April 2020, the Greek government has made it mandatory to issue E-invoices for B2G (Business to Government) transactions. These issued e-invoices can be sent and received via Peppol Network. E-invoices issued and sent must meet Peppol BIS Billing 3.0 format and EU standards. In addition, e-invoices are submitted to the MyDATA platform so that they can be processed by the Greek Tax Authorities. As a Submit option, businesses can work with service providers or can submit with their own ERP systems.

With the Law of 4601/2019 (A.44), articles 148-154, “Corporate transformations and harmonization of the legislative framework with the provisions of Directive 2014/55/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 16 April 2014 On the issuance of Electronic Invoices in Public Procurement Framework and other provisions “, it has published by Greek Government that it will apply e-invoice in order to prevent tax-related troublesome situations and to end the paper invoice period.

In Greece, as of April 2019, central contracting authorities are within the scope of the electronic invoice obligation, and as of April 2020, all contracting authorities have been included in the scope of this obligation. Central government authorities, Central purchasing authorities, as well as decentralized contracting authorities and contracting authorities, must receive and issue electronic invoices. In addition, e-Invoices to be issued related to all these public procurement processes must meet the EU standard and the national standards.

Therefore, it is mandatory to issue e-invoices for B2G transactions. However, no exact date has been specified on whether B2B(business to business) and B2C (Business to Customer) transactions will be included in the e-invoice requirement.

The issued e-Invoices will be submitted to a platform called MyDATA for review by the Greek Tax Authorities. Businesses have different shipping options; ERP, external service providers etc.

With the Peppol network, suppliers can send and receive their invoices via Peppol BIS Billing 3.0. Due to the Peppol network, the format of the e-invoice is determined by Peppol CIUS. However, e-Invoices to be originally issued for public procurements must meet EU and national standards. And also,  digital signature is not mandatory for e-invoices, and there is a 5 years archiving obligation.
