Vietnam Issues New E-Invoices Decree:

The 119 Decree on the implementation of e-invoice in Vietnam has officially been issued and effective from November 1, 2018. The Vietnamese Government plans that by 2020, 90% of firms will use e-invoice for their daily operation.

According to Vietnam Briefing, e-invoice will not only save time and costs but will also reduce the administrative burden and help in account reconciliation, minimizing billing frauds. Moreover, applying e-invoice will save the paper, printing and postal costs. At tax makers’ view, it will enhance the transparency in trading activities, providing a very strong tool to control tax commitments of companies. 

The Government estimates that if 2.5 billion invoices are used in a year, firms can save around VND 1 trillion ( US$43.9 million) according to Vietnam Briefing Media.


The national-wide implementation of e-invoice creates opportunities, but at the same time, many challenges to companies. The common issues are:

  • Too many emails arrive daily and in different formats, how do I not miss any invoicing email?
  • I need a solution to retrieve invoices and other supporting documents effectively, also for tax audit purposes.
  • I have branches in 64 provinces, how to manage the whole e-invoicing things?
  • Is there any software solutions to auto-detect if the invoice data is valid as well as to notify me if the invoice content does not match with PO.?
  • What can be the best options to input invoice data into an accounting system? Is there any auto import software that can help us?
  • All in one, how can you help us to be independent of the burden of manual invoice payable processing?
