Peppol-accredited e-invoicing services
The IMDA (Infocomm Media Development Authority) became the first Peppol Authority outside of Europe in May 2018. By 2019, Singapore launched the InvoiceNow E-invoicing network nationwide.
The e-invoicing standard adopted by the Singapore government is Peppol, which is an internationally established framework.
The Peppol E-invoicing Network (better known as InvoiceNow in Singapore), allows invoices to be exchanged between different Accounting systems. LinkFor was one of the leading service providers in Singapore to be Peppol certified.
The Singapore government has not made e-invoicing mandatory, but they have started to heavily encourage businesses (both large and small) in the private sector as well as public sector entities to become e-invoicing-ready through a careful incentivised programme.
E-invoicing is becoming an essential digital and financial tool for organisations of all levels in the Government sector. Switching to e-invoicing results in reduced processing costs, heavy reduction in time-waste and administration delays, streamlined invoice processing, and improved trading relationships.
Implementation in 2 weeks
We are experts at implementing e-invoicing and working with already integrated business systems. If you are using large ERP systems such as TechnologyOne, Civica or Microsoft Dynamics, or if you are using Cloud-based Accounting systems such as QuickBooks, MYOB, Xero, MoneyWorks, etc., we have got the expertise and experience to enable e-invoicing for your government entity.
LinkFor is a tried and tested solution for the government sector which speeds up the implementation time for you. Implementation, testing and training can be all done in approximately 2 weeks!
Export PDF, XML and CSV
If a department or agency is not ready for a complete integration with their ERP or Accounting system but needs to be e-invoice compliant, LinkFor can support them to become Peppol-ready in a quick and easy way.
Your organisation can choose to export or download incoming e-invoices to an appropriate format (PDF, XML or CSV) and then process the invoice as usual.
Security is important to us!
Here at LinkFor, we take security very seriously. With the rise of security threats around the world, we use several 3rd party tools to run security tests and check our product against various threats. We have also implemented monitoring tools from Amazon Web Services (AWS) to monitor our infrastructure security.
In addition, all members of our team undergo regular training sessions throughout the year to ensure we are aware of any potential security threats and what protocols to follow, ensuring all the latest security measures are being implemented on the LinkFor e-invoicing solutions.
