“IT and information infrastructure tends to increasingly develop, facilitating the development of e-invoice. For enterprises, the use of e-invoices has brought many benefits such as reducing cost and time in printing, issuing, sending and storing paper invoices, and restricting counterfeit invoices. Vietnamese enterprises need to approach and apply new technology solutions to enhance their management. Therefore, the productivity of each enterprise will be better ensured and will develop in a more professional way” Ms. Tran Thi Lan Anh stressed.

According to Mr. Phung, the use of e-invoice has not only contributed to reducing time and cost for enterprises but has also contributed to preventing invoice fraud and reduced time for carrying out administrative procedures for invoicing.
