If the parliament (Riigikogu) approves the changes, e-invoicing will become mandatory for all registered businesses in Estonia from January 1, 2025, in case a buyer requests the use of e-invoices.

The Estonian government approved a draft bill on May 2, 2024, that pertains to amendments to the Accounting Act. The aim of the proposal is to harmonize and simplify the requirements for e-invoicing.

If the proposal is approved, starting from the beginning of 2025, businesses must deliver invoices as e-invoices if the buyer company requests them. If the buyer requests an e-invoice and no other form has been agreed upon, the European standard (EU EN16931) is used by default. Thus, Estonia does not prohibit the use of other e-invoice formats.
