On April 18, 2019 there entered into force the Polish Act of November 9, 2018 on electronic invoices in public procurement, concessions for construction works or services and public-private partnership (Journal of Laws 2018 item 2191 ). This Act implements Directive 2014/55/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 16 April 2014 on invoicing electronic in public procurement (Journal of the EU L 133 of 06/05/2014, page 1). The Directive, in its recitals, indicates above all that “The multiplicity of non-interoperable standards results in excessive complexity, legal uncertainty and additional operating costs for economic operators using electronic invoices across Member States”. The above problems may become more serious in the future due to the spread of electronic invoices. Therefore, one of the goals of introducing the above changes is to introduce interoperability, i.e. to allow the presentation and processing of information in a consistent manner between business systems, regardless of the technologies, applications or platforms they use. Under the new Act, an ICT system was created for which the minister in charge of the economy is responsible – the Electronic Invoicing Platform www.efaktura.gov.pl.
