|Compliance Alert - Organization Identification Number requirement for e-invoice submission to the Central Dutch Government
The e-invoicing department of the Netherlands has decided to increase some validation means for e-invoicing, as included in the Guideline Basisfactuur Rijk (BFR). The BFR contains minimum invoice details for B2G e-invoice exchange with the central Dutch government.
An Organization Identification Number (OIN) is used to address and identify the National Government Party (buyer), which can be found in the Peppol Directory. The identification of a central government party on the e-invoice comes in the BT-47 field.
From 1 March 2023, suppliers can only use OIN to address the Central Dutch Government. Other values, such as a Chamber of Commerce number (KVK), will be rejected and returned to the supplier. This applies to both the NLCIUS and the PEPPOL BIS 3.0 e-invoice standards.
You can find more information about this change in the BFR Guideline.
