Fitek and Unifiedpost Group surpass milestone of 10,000 companies signed up for e-invoicing in Estonia
Unifiedpost Group has made it its mission to lead the digitalisation of companies in Europe. This week Fitek, acquired by Unifiedpost in 2019, surpassed the milestone of 10,000 Estonian companies signed up to their tool arved.ee – with 87% of invoices sent as fully digital e-invoices.
Leading European FinTech firm Unifiedpost Group has reached a new milestone in its mission to digitalise companies’ documents flow, with 10,000 Estonian companies signed up to subsidiary company Fitek’s invoicegate project.
Fitek launched digital invoicing portal invoicegate under the label arved.ee in late May 2019 to facilitate the use of e-invoices for small and medium-sized enterprises within the Estonian market. It has since delivered more than 50,000 invoices – of which almost 87% are machine readable, or true e-invoices.
Across Europe, companies are rapidly adopting tools to move away from paper invoices, and the readiness of Estonian public authorities to receive only e-invoices accelerates the take-up of digital invoices more widely. Lilleste adds: “The launch of Arved.ee coincided with an amendment to the Estonian state accounting law. The state requirement to receive only e-invoices will also encourage organisations using our solution to exchange e-invoices among themselves. We are currently expanding our services and by the end of next year, we plan to be live in at least 12 countries. In this advanced e-environment, we can work on solutions that make it as easy as possible for a customer to send and receive invoices, and thanks to Unifiedpost Group, we’ll soon be able to include payments and financing in arved.ee.”
The total value of arved.ee’s delivered invoices over the past seven months surmounted 100 million EUR, with the largest single invoice delivered totalling 1.8 million EUR. A record was set in early December, with users sending 801 invoices in one day.
