eInvoicing in Australia
The Australian government has mandated all Commonwealth Government agencies to implement the capability to receive eInvoices. As an inducement, the Australian government committed to a 5-day payment deadline for contracts up to AUD$1 million where both government agency and supplier are transacting over the Peppol network.
Tickstar is also listed as a suitable provider on the Australian Government’s Peppol Services and Capabilities Panel. This means Tickstar successfully met the additional security and business requirements to offer eInvoicing capabilities to any Federal, State and Local Government entity. Using this panel, government entities can directly procure Tickstar services through a streamlined procurement process.
