Devised by the European Commission, PEPPOL (Pan European Public Procurement Online) enables Public Sector organisations and their suppliers to exchange supply chain documents electronically, such as invoicing, ordering and shipping.

You can connect electronically to any of your suppliers via an access point, as provided by Celtrino.  The buyer simply connect to Celtrino’s system, to issue the appropriate supply chain documents (e.g. order) and these are then transmitted to the supplier, without a need for manual intervention.

Celtrino were the first PEPPOL access point provider in Ireland, and an approved PEPPOL Access Point Provider to all NHS trusts across the UK.

Celtrino has the proven expertise to deliver the efficiencies of PEPPOL to all Public Sector trading partners.

EU Directive on e-invoicing

As per Directive 2014/55/EU - the European Standard on e-invoicing, EU Public sector bodies must be compliant to receive electronic invoices from April 2019. However, for sub-central government agencies, individual member states have had the option to extend the deadline until April 2020.
