Is e-invoicing mandatory in Italy?
E-invoicing in Italy is mandatory for all domestic B2B transactions for the sales of goods and/or provision of services. For B2C transactions, it is only mandatory if requested by the customer. Reporting of cross-border transactions through the SDI in the FatturaPA format is also mandatory.
How does e-invoicing work in Italy?
The tax authority requires all invoices in the Fattura PA XML schema format. Transmission of e-invoices happens through the Sistema di Interscambio. E-invoices must be cleared by the tax authority. The Italian tax authority delivers the legal cleared e-invoice to the recipient.

How do you comply with Conservazione sostitutiva?
The term conservazione sostitutiva refers to a long-term preservation process required for compliant archiving of e-invoices in Italy. E-invoices must be preserved after being archived by grouping them together in a so-called ‘package’, and providing that e-invoice package with a qualified digital signature or seal and a time reference.
This process must be completed no later than three months after the deadline for the submission of the annual fiscal declaration at the end of the fiscal year. E-invoice preservation is an integral feature of Sovos eArchive for invoices stored under Italian law.
