CTC Definition + Architecture
Transaction data must be electronically submitted to a tax authority platform before (clearance), during,
or immediately after the actual exchange of each invoice between the trading parties.
* In some countries, the invoice may remain paper-based (e.g. Philippines or Poland voluntary phase), these schemes are named ‘CTC Reporting’.
Tax + E-invoicing Compliance FAQs
What is E-invoicing compliance?
Many countries, including France, are now moving towards post-audit Continuous Transaction Controls (CTCs), introducing mandatory e-invoicing coupled with e-reporting to government portals.
What are CTCs (Continuous Transaction Controls)?
The term is used to describe mandatory “real-time” invoice reporting and validation by the tax authorities through e-invoicing or transaction listings.
Why are new regulations being introduced?
France, Germany, Italy and many other countries implementing CTCs hope to fight fraud and bridge the VAT gap, monitor the economic activity in the country, move to paperless submission to governmental authority, and increase efficiency and automate part of the VAT reporting process.
Who is affected by these new regulations?
From July 1, 2024, all large companies headquartered or with established operations in France will have to accept e-invoices issued according to the CTC (Continuous Transactions Control) system by their suppliers.
What is PDP (Partner Dematerialization Platforms) or PPF (portail public de facturation)?
Invoices will now be required to pass through one of two platforms: PPF (Fr: portail public de facturation) or Chorus Pro, and PDP (Fr: plateformes de dématerialisation partenaires), which are platforms that will be accredited by the tax authorities. This is the service we provide in partnership with Sovos.
How does this change the invoicing process in France?
The exchange of invoices will be channeled from sellers to the buyers based on their SIREN or SIRET via the platform of their choice – either PPF or PDP.
Who is responsible for payment e-reporting?
The seller will be responsible for reporting the invoice and payment status to the appropriate authorities.
