After implementing the feature that creates and sends automatically self-invoices, for the invoices you receive from FINOM, we have added the possibility to manually create ‘self-invoices’ for all your foreign counterparties.

From 1 July 2022 – If your VAT number is registered in VIES (The VAT Information Exchange System) and you receive an invoice from a foreign counterpart, you’ll need to create a ‘self-invoice’ and send it to the Exchange System (Sistema Di Interscambio - SDI) informing the Italian Revenue Agency about VAT rates.

The transmission of the self-invoices must be made by the fifteenth day of the next month, from when you received the foreign document. Example: foreign doc arrives 1st to 30th Sep, the transmission of the self-invoices must be made by 15th Oct

To create a self-invoice follow these simple steps:

  1. Upload your invoice using our Document collection feature – Documents section.



  2. Review your document by filling up the empty fields on the left-hand side. The issuer has to always be a foreign company.


  3. Click on “Verify document” in the top right corner to save the document.

  4. Then click on the red button “Create self-invoice”. You have now the ability to add the last details on the invoice page (VAT rate, invoice number, item description, purpose, etc.) before sending it to the SDI.



    Tip: Self-invoices should have their own number. The system will generate the number automatically for you.

  5. Once done click on “Send to SDI” button in the top right corner.

You have just sent your self-invoice to SDI! You can check the delivery status in the history section or in the top right corner of the invoice overview page.

To download the XML version of the self-invoice click on the button with 3 dots.
