The Digital Business Council, with the support of the Australian Taxation Office and the Federal Department of Industry Innovation and Science, has established a national e-invoicing framework with a view to improving productivity for Australian business.

Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) is not new but has seen relatively slow uptake outside of a few industry sectors where implementations have centered around a small number of non-interoperable supply chain hubs.  Total penetration of e-invoicing in Australia is around 15%.

In order to facilitate broad scale adoption, the Digital Business Council has established a technical working group at that aims to leverage modern ubiquitous web standards such as REST, JSON, and OAuth to deliver a low cost peer-to-peer framework that can bring the benefits of end-to-end invoicing automation to all Australian businesses whilst maintaining interoperability with legacy EDI networks.

Consortium leadership is based on individual merit and is not tied to financial contribution, corporate standing, or special appointment.
