Like Norway, Swedish companies that send invoices to the public sector are now required to send them as e-invoices, and PEPPOL is the official network for this purpose. After April 1. 2019 PDF attachments to e-mails were no longer to be accepted by government.

The official PEPPOL Authority in Sweden is DIGG. They are publishing information on e-invoicing and the use of PEPPOL here.

Från den 1 april 2019 är det lag på att alla inköp i offentlig sektor ska faktureras med elektronisk faktura enligt en ny europeisk standard. Lagkravet, i Sverige PEPPOL BIS Billing 3, att skicka och ta emot e-faktura gäller för alla offentliga upphandlingar som har påbörjats efter den 1 april 2019, inklusive direktupphandlingar.

PEPPOL ID (e-invoicing address)

There are two common PEPPOL ID variants in use in Sweden. For Swedish organizations, SFTI ("Single Face To Industry") recommends the Swedish organization number is used, along with the ICD (identifier) 0007. An example address is:


Alternatively, a GS1 GLN (Global Location Number) may be used:

EDI/Svefaktura invoices

In Sweden, many companies have not made the switch to using PEPPOL BIS Billing 3.0 yet, and so many are not registered in the Peppol network and will not show up when clicking on the magnifying glass in Moment. In those cases all invoices are sent through Maventa. Somewhat counterintuitively you must provide the details in the format as if it was a normal peppol invoice, and those will be adjusted to the right format later.

In the example below we have setup Volkswagen Group Sverige AB (company reg. nr. 556084-0968) to receive an EDI invoice, but they have 7300009016648 https://www.digg.se/digitala-tjanster/peppol/anslut-till-peppol/instruktion-for-val-av-peppol-idas their address without any ICD. We therefore use 0007 to indicate its a swedish invoice recipient.


Additionally, there may be situations where the GLN is provided by the customer, but is not required. This is very common with the inexchange network, which provides both a GLN number and a organization number. In some cases only the organization Number is available to receive e-invoices, and the fields in the e-invoicing address should be left empty. In either case Moment support can assist in looking up the details per customer.
