The KSeF Act has been signed by the President. In less than a year, e-invoicing will become mandatory. Entrepreneurs have little time to implement the National e-Invoicing System in their organisation.
The obligation to use the National e-Invoicing System will come into force on 1 July 2024. However, this deadline does not apply to VAT-exempt businesses, mainly the SME sector. For these entities, e-invoicing via KSeF will be mandatory from 1 January 2025.
KSeF is a tool for issuing and sharing structured invoices. Each e-invoice generated by KSeF will be marked with a unique identification number. This will confirm its entry into legal circulation. These documents will be stored in the system for 10 years. For this reason, it will no longer be necessary to issue duplicate invoices. On the other hand, the procedure for correcting e-invoices and sending invoice attachments will be complicated.
The structured invoice is issued in xml format compliant with the FA(2) e-Invoice structure. This template can be found on the ePUAP platform in the Central Repository of Electronic Document Templates. Any e-invoice issued in an incompatible format will be rejected by the system. In the same way, the system will deal with e-invoices in which any information or data specified in the FA(2) schema as mandatory is missing.
Issuing e-invoices via a central database such as KSeF means that the tax administration will have immediate access to the documents issued by entrepreneurs.
Entrepreneurs have less than a year left to implement KSeF. The implementation of the system involves many changes in the organisation and requires thorough preparation.
Entities may be fined for failing to comply with their KSeF obligations. Threatened by sanctions is, for example:
Important: Fines for non-compliance with KSeF obligations will not be imposed until 1 January 2025.
The use of KSeF will become mandatory in less than a year. Entrepreneurs should start preparing for the implementation of the system now. The transition to KSeF is quite a complicated process that brings with it many changes for organisations.
