Advantages of invoices in UBL-format

An invoice in UBL format is an electronic invoice, consisting of a PDF and XML or an XML with embedded PDF. With a UBL-invoice, it is possible to automatically split amounts to multiple invoice lines. Actually, all the details will be automatically split, following the invoice line in the electronic XML-invoice.

Here you can read what UBL means and in this article, you can find a list of suppliers who submit their invoices in UBL.

What are advanced posting rules?

The ability to pre-define the UBL invoice-lines and how they correspond to accounting data.

Automatic tagging

Go to Settings > Administrations > Actions (Edit) > Settings. Scroll all the way down and activate the setting "Tag when the document is recognized as purchase [INK] or sales [VRK] (only for UBL invoices)"

📌 Please note: For recognition, a VAT number or Chamber of Commerce number (only for NL) must be added in the administration settings.

With this setting the UBL invoice is automatically tagged.

Advantages of advanced posting rules

  • Post different UBL-lines to different general ledgers, based on pre-defined rules.

  • Create rules per supplier to directly post invoices per article/item code or based on VAT-percentage.

  • Only the invoice lines that are in the XML invoice are taken over, regardless of the number of saved advanced posting lines.

  • Fewer manual actions in the booking screen.

  • Fewer errors while posting the invoice.
