Are you prepared for the transition to PEPPOL e-Invoicing in Australia and New Zealand in 2019?

Study Tour to Singapore - 5-8 November 2019


Dear ABSIA Community Member,

You are invited to join the Australia-New Zealand Study Tour to Singapore - the first country to launch the PEPPOL Authority outside Europe. 

The Australian and New Zealand Prime Ministers have announced that the global e-Invoicing Standard, PEPPOL, will be implemented in Australia & NZ during 2019 and this Tour will study Singapore's experience as well as attending the first "Exchange Summit" in Asia Pacific in November. 

Join ABSIA and the Trans-Tasman Business Circle to attend the Summit and meet with government, enterprise and small business who have implemented and gained from e-Invoicing implementation in Singapore. There is an option to extend to Kuala Lumpur and learn of opportunities in Malaysia and more broadly across ASEAN.

Why Attend?
PEPPOL based e-Invoicing has been mandated in Europe as of April 2019, and is being implemented in jurisdictions across the world. It will impact your business or agency. Learn from the global leaders at the Summit

Australia & NZ have one of the highest per capita rates of small business activity in the world, and penetration of Cloud Accounting software now exceeds 50% of the small business market. This creates an opportunity to build export markets for AU/NZ software vendors and for enterprise and government to benefit from world leading supply chain efficiencies. 

The Summit Will Cover:

  • Implications of Singapore being the first National PEPPOL Authority outside Europe
  • Global e-Invoicing Trends: Road Mapping, Market Analysis and Best Practices
  • How Multinationals Successfully Handle VAT Compliance, Standards and Formats
  • How Regulatory Requirements Will Catapult the Market into New Dimensions
  • Impact of Artificial Intelligence and Blockchain on Processes in AP and AR
  • Successfully Coping With Challenges of Onboarding 100% of Suppliers to e-Invoicing

Study Tour Details
Monday 5 - Thursday 8 November (includes Exchange Summit on 5-6 November)
- Optional Friday 9 November - Kuala Lumpur
Registration: $US5,000 (SME registration fee available upon application)
- Includes Exchange Summit Registration Fee (delegates meet their own travel and accommodation costs)

A minimum of 10 delegates is required for the delegation to proceed.
