When you send an e-invoice via the tradeinterop platform, we need to verify your details. This is necessary to prevent others from sending invoices on your behalf. Verifying your data can be done in 3 ways:
1. Verified by tradeinterop:
When you are registered with tradeinterop, we verify your details. You will then be a verified sender, so that recipients can be confident that your invoices are not phantom invoices.
2. Verified by Simplerinvoicing:
If you are using software that supports Simplerinvoicing/PEPPOL, your software package will perform the verification. We can then rely on the correctness of your data in the e-invoice.
3. Verified by invoice recipient:
If you do not use any software and do not have an account on the tradeinterop platform, we will ask your customer to verify the details. This may take some time.
Why is verification important?
By verifying your details, we can prevent other parties from committing invoice fraud on your behalf. As a result, it becomes impossible for other parties to send invoices on your behalf. This is an important requirement for more and more invoice recipients in the transition to electronic invoicing. It allows parties to significantly reduce the costs associated with fraud detection.
How can I be verified by tradeinterop?
You get the status 'verified by tradeinterop' automatically when you create an account on the tradeinterop platform. Creating an account on the tradeinterop platform is easy and can be done on https://portal.tradeinterop.com.
How can I be verified by an invoice recipient?
This status is obtained when you offer an e-invoice through our platform, without having a verified account with us. The request for verification is then made to the invoice recipient. This process may take some time. If the recipient agrees, your invoice will be forwarded to the invoice recipient.
