Few months away from the electronic invoicing launch, we are moving closer to the introduction of the electronic receipt to complete the fiscal certification process: according to the 2019 Fiscal Act, in fact, from July 1st daily payment data telematic transmission to the Income Revenue will be mandatory for goods and services regarding VAT purposes.
