Invoices in ZUGFeRD format with webPDF

ZUGFeRD (In German: Zentraler User Guide des Forums elektronische Rechnung Deutschland) is a format for electronic invoices in addition to XRechnung.

The format was developed by the “Forum for Electronic Invoicing Germany/Forum elektronische Rechnung Deutschland” and, just like the French open e-invoice format Factur-X, the format works in such a way that machine-readable UN/CEFACT XML is integrated into PDF files. This complies with the EU directive EU/2014/55 and the standard EN16931. ZUGFeRD invoices therefore consist of two parts. On the one hand a visual representation of the invoice (in PDF/A-3) and on the other hand structured data in XML format, which is embedded as an attachment in the PDF.

Using ZUGFeRD with webPDF

As a PDF solution webPDF offers a support for embedding XML data.  The XML data can be embedded and simultaneously validated during the PDF/A conversion according to the ZUGFeRD 1.0 and 2.0 specifications.
