️⛳  High security and accuracy: An electronic invoice is an invoice with an authentication code of the tax authority. Therefore, this is the type of invoice that cannot be faked. Notably, e-invoices have very high accuracy, while writing paper invoices often make mistakes such as:  writing wrong buyer's name, wrong address, wrong tax code, wrong unit price... and the Error handling in these cases is often very complicated and time-consuming.
