Few days ago, June 6, 2014, Electronic Invoicing to Public Administration became mandatory in Italy. Keeping this deadline in mind, Mago.net 3.9 SP 9 was launched at the end of May: a specific release designed to give you the tools you need for a proper and timely update to the current legal framework.
In order to let you be up and running and align yourself with E-Invoicing protocols, Mago.net 3.9.9 introduces the new FEPAConnector module, designed to connect with the PA Electronic Invoicing Zucchetti program.
FEPAConnector is an efficient and safe solution: the module had to pass a complex series of demanding tests, carried out at some pilot companies prior to release, in order to guarantee total reliability.
Let's briefly see which are the solutions at your disposal to meet all the needs of new legal obligations. Electronic invoice must be traceable and safe, as well as recognizable as authentic. This is guaranteed by a unique identification code (shown in IPA, Index of Public Administration) of the invoice recipient office and by affixing the digital signature of invoice issuer. In addition you will have to keep all documents sent in electronic format by electronic storage. In this way documents will be equivalent to those on paper, allowing you to reduce costs associated to traditional storage.
Mago.net external procedure implemented by the Zucchetti PA Electronic Invoicing software allows you to create and send digitally signed e-invoices to the Exchange System, that is the only channel allowed to transmit to Public Administration (Exchange System, Italian SDI, is the IT system able to receive invoices as XML file, check received file and submit invoices to Government recipients, then releasing transmission receipts). The solution is natively integrated with Zucchetti document management and storage system (SOS Infinity), able to complete the whole business documents dematerialization cycle.
From its side, the new Mago.net 3.9.9 FEPAConnector module allows you to connect to Zucchetti PA Electronic Invoicing software, in a simple and automatic, yet customizable way.
The link between Mago.net and PA Electronic Invoicing is handled by FEPAConnector with two separate procedures; in this way it is guaranteed a two-way dialogue with the public administration system, both to send invoices and to receive related documents (successful transmission and reception confirmation). Mago.net outputs invoices for PA, so you can extract them in order to control and eventually select them individually. Zucchetti PA Electronic Invoicing manages subsequent phases (invoices digital signature, sending and electronic storage); Mago.net always allows you to know invoices status, thanks to the direct connection to PA Electronic Invoicing database.
Thanks to FEPAConnector you can customize in detail the invoices communication to the PA Electronic Invoicing software, issued by Mago.net, manage attachments saved with EasyAttachment in order to transmit them with invoices, as well as view and print documents to be sent / sent to PA Electronic Invoicing software using specific filters.
The new Mago.net 3.9.9 module allows you also to specify additional data, typical of PA Invoices, both to indicate the Public Administration reference codes, and to define whether the invoices should be sent in electronic format. It is possible that a certain public category still accepts paper invoices (for some institutions, such as the local ones, the duty will be triggered in 2015).
FEPAConnector assists you by automatically updating document status while PA Electronic Invoicing software is sending to the Exchange System: the invoice is shown as unsent, to be validated, validated, generated, signed, sent, etc..
In essence, the new FEPAConnector module introduced by Mago.net 3.9.9 release allows you to delegate to PA Electronic Invoicing solution all the invoices transmission flow, in an easy and accurate way thanks to a perfect product alignment.
Mago.net 3.9.9 with FEPAConnector module makes it easy a very complex process: an operative simplification that is also reflected in the ease of use and really user-friendly setup, achievable in few steps. To implement the module in a simple and safe way, Mago.net provides you with a handy quick start guide, or the 10 simple steps to follow to successfully install the integration.
