Portugal: Mandatory B2G invoicing for SME’s postponed again

In a recent move, the Portuguese parliament has once again postponed the implementation of mandatory B2G e-invoicing for small, medium and microenterprises. The mandate has been postponed before and was previously set to become effective on 1 July 2022. With the change published in Law Decree 42-A/2022, of 30 June 2022, the postponement now means that B2G invoicing only becomes mandatory for SME’s on 1 January 2023.

The reason for this change is that, after extending the deadline for acceptance of electronic invoices in PDF until 31 December 2022, the Portuguese government considered it important to also extend the deadline for receiving and processing B2G electronic invoices for micro, small and medium-sized companies until 31 December 2022.
