Pilot program that will run between January and June 2024

The French Ministry of Economy and Finances on 19 April 2023 announced the implementation of an electronic invoicing (e-invoicing) and digital reporting pilot program that will run between January and June 2024. The pilot program is intended to test and confirm in real conditions, the proper functioning of the e-invoicing and digital reporting systems before they become mandatory for large businesses on 1 July 2024.

The pilot program will involve all the participants and elements of the system, such as the Public Invoicing Portal (Portail Public de Facturation—PPF), the Private Partner Platforms (Plateforme de Dématérialisation Partenaire—PDP), business users, and authorized suppliers of invoicing solutions. 

Companies wishing to participate in the pilot program must form a team, bring together a few voluntary suppliers and customers, their software publishers, or even dematerialization platforms (PDPs). Each team will be organized around a leader, that will work as a privileged interlocutor with the administration during the pilot and its preparatory phase. Applications must be submitted through the French tax authorities’ website by 26 June 2023.

In addition, the French tax authorities will open on 1 May 2023 the process for software providers wishing to be registered as PDPs.
