Is Odoo an access point (AP) of Peppol? V14/V15/V16

Briefly explained, Peppol is actually a kind of Outlook, but not for sending e-mails but for exchanging electronic invoices. A mailbox in other words.

Peppol does not only cover Belgium ; it's a global network. Odoo is considering getting certified to become an "Access Point (aka AP)" on this network. As for now, Odoo is not yet one. Peppol's usage is promoted and is likely to widen in terms of e-invoicing coverage. 


In some countries like Norway, not to mention them, it became a real reference. Odoo's current business proposal is to maintain the generic Peppol format (BIS 3) and the national specificities where applicable of some countries : e-fff (BE), Factur-x/XRechnung (FR/DE), NLCIUS 2.1 (NL), EHF (NO) as well as a standard format UBL 2.1. More and more types will be added in Odoo. On a sales journal, you can choose which types of E-invoice you want to create when validating/sending a sales invoice. About FacturX / XRecnhung, the XML file is embedded in the PDF file attached to the invoice for the interoperability between accounting packages supporting this format. 


Once Odoo gets considered an access point, users won't need to do that anymore and the invoice will be uploaded to the peppol platform automatically upon confirmation. Customers can then go and download it there or if they have software that is also Peppol compliant automatically pull it in.


[UPDATE 20/06/2022]

The new module 'account_edi_ubl_cii' ("Import/Export electronic invoices with UBL/CII") has just been merged (14.0/15.0 -> master). It allows support of: 

* Factur-X (CII) (the only format enabled by default for everyone) 

* E-FFF (only appear for belgian companies) 

* NLCIUS (only appear for dutch companies) 

* UBL Bis 3 (appear if the company's country is in the EAS list: https://docs.peppol.eu/poacc/billing/3.0/codelist/eas/) * XRechnung (UBL) (appear for german companies) 

* EHF3 (actually, EHF3 is fully supported by UBL Bis 3, see for reference: https://anskaffelser.dev/postaward/g3/spec/current/billing-3.0/norway/#_implementation, so for norwegian companies, only Bis 3 will appear) 


In master, this new module replaces the modules 'account_edi_facturx', 'account_edi_ubl', 'account_edi_ubl_bis3', 'l10n_be_edi', 'l10n_nl_edi', 'l10n_no_edi' as the formats were outdated. 

In stable, it has to be installed on top of the latter existing modules and serve as a patch. So for instance, if you want to use E-FFF in 14.0, you need to install l10n_be_edi + account_edi_ubl_cii (there are post init hooks to auto install account_edi_ubl_cii when 'l10n_be_edi', 'l10n_no_edi', 'l10n_nl_edi' are installed). 

Once the new module is installed, note that the UBL 2.0 and UBL 2.1 formats will no longer appear in the journal. It has been decided since we support the very similar and more recent format 'UBL Bis 3', and we don't want to have a long list of edi formats which could confuse the user. Bis 3 has essentially the same structure (same tags, same order) as UBL 2.1/UBL 2.0 but with additional constraints. Thus, a Bis 3 invoice should pass a UBL 2.1/UBL 2.0 validator. 

Note also that french customers who wants to submit Factur-X PDF to Chorus Pro should add a system parameter 'edi.use_pdfa' with value: 'true'


Odoo is still not an access point but is working in that direction.

Hello Chloé, can you clarify for the less-knowledgeable users what this means? I have no idea how all this information helps me in sending out PEPPOL-invoices to my customers ...;-) please clarify?

Hello,
This means that the format of the files that you get out of Odoo are now compatible with PEPPOL but that the connection itself has not been developed yet (becoming an access point is more complex).
Hope this helps already!

Any update with this PEPPOL in upcoming Odoo 16 ?

Odoo will not be an access point of PEPPOL for the 16.0 version from what I heard. Our product owners team should more intensively work on it for the minor versions.

Concerning the formats of the files, they are compatible with the Peppol formats in V16. This already allows some workarounds.

Thanks Chloé. Indeed, the files can already be imported in Odoo and it's a good start.

Hi,

does this mean the export of an invoice can be done in the format so we can upload it on mercurius portal?

br,

Hi, 
It depends on the format that you need for Mercurius. If one of the Odoo e-invoicing formats (ex. UBL format ) provided are compatible with Mercurius this could effectively work. You should have the localization installed, go on the sales journal and activate it there. 
Kind regards,

Hi  Chloé,

Any update yet? 


I am working for the (Belgian) government and sending invoices over PEPPOL is mandatory.

As long as this is not implemented I can not use Odoo myself, and I am a partner ;-).


Thanks,

Davy

Hi Davy,
I just asked for an update. It seems to be a priority for Odoo to become an Access Point so our R&D team is working on it. I do not have any deadline to give you though.
I will do my best though to keep this post updated.
Have a nice day!

Hi Day, I just updated the post with the latest information received.

Hello Chloé,

Do you have any idea when it will happen? "Odoo is considering getting certified to become an "Access Point (aka AP)" on this network."

Thanks

Hello Kévin,
It has not been decided yet by the product owners. We do not know in which version this will be te case yet. I'll update this forum entry once we'll have the information.
Have a great day!

Once in a while it would be good, if some one knew something in Odoo:) Can please find it out if it will be included in v16? Just yes or no answer?

Hi Egon,
I asked an update to our product owners. Our development team is still working on it but we cannot guarantee that it will be the case for the V16.
Have a very good day!

Hi Kevin and Egon,
