Maventa's customers can send invoices to the Peppol network in the same way as to any other operator. The customer does not need to be registered in the Peppol network to send, but the recipient of the invoice must be registered.
To send the invoice via Peppol network, sender gives the recipient’s Peppol address and sets PEPPOL as the operator information. Peppol address is the recipient’s electronic invoice address in the Peppol network. It consists an identifier prefix and company identification number.
Identifier prefix is a code that tells what the type of the identifier is in question. Company identification number is the identifier of the company e.g. organisation number. Identifiers used are depending on country, see https://docs.peppol.eu/poacc/billing/3.0/codelist/ICD/ for more information.
For example in Norway, Peppol address is formed based on organisation number, prefix used for Norwegian organisation number is 0192. For Norwegian company whose organisation number would be 123456789, Peppol address would be 0192:123456789. Operator code is always PEPPOL.
In Finland, the identifier prefix number can be for example 0037 and the company identification number is EIA (OVT-tunnus). So for a Finnish company, with organisation number 1234567-8, Peppol address would be 0037:003712345678 and operator code is again PEPPOL.
To look up Peppol recipients (to see if a company can receive invoices in the Peppol network) you can use Maventa Finder or the Peppol lookup here.
Invoices are sent over network in Peppol formats. If the original invoice is not in Peppol format, it will be converted before the send by Maventa. Invoices going to Peppol are validated against the format validation rules, invoices that are not valid cannot be sent in Peppol network.
