DKV Euro Service: News and press releases
DKV customers can now have their electronic DKV invoice processed automatically in their accounting system. To do this, an XML data record is added to the PDF invoice; nothing changes to the original PDF invoice. The automatic transfer of invoice data avoids errors and the accelerated posting saves time. The so-called ZUGFeRD invoice (Central User Guide of the Forum elektronische Rechnung Deutschland) consists of a visual representation of the invoice (pdf file) and the invoice information as a structured and automatically evaluable data set (XML file).
"Many providers of accounting and ERP software already support ZUGFeRD, so that many of our customers can immediately switch to automatic invoice data processing," says Dr. Werner Grünewald, Managing Director of DKV Euro Service and responsible for Finance. "The conversion of the invoice to the new format is automatic and the customer does not have to worry about anything. If you do not yet use the new format, you can continue to use the invoices sent to you as usual."
