Invoicing Karolinska Institutet

This information is aimed at suppliers who wish to send invoices to Karolinska Institutet.

All purchases within the public sector are required by law to be electronically invoiced (e-invoicing) according to a new European standard.
The requirement to send and receive e-invoices applies to all public procurements starting after 1 April 2019, including direct procurements.
Public procurements commencing before this date are not retroactively affected by the law.
If the parties have agreed on an e-invoicing standard other than the European standard, the supplier may continue sending invoices according to the agreed standard.
