Joint media release with 
Julie Collins MP
Minister for Housing, Homelessness and Small Business

The Albanese Government is committed to saving Australian businesses time and money and is encouraging them to participate in eInvoicing Week, which kicks off today.

eInvoicing Week 2022 is running from 15 to 21 August 2022 and presents an opportunity for business to find out more about eInvoicing – a fast and secure way to send and receive invoices that can enable faster payments and improve cash flow.

As part of our focus on enhancing business productivity, the Albanese Government is committed to supporting the uptake of eInvoicing and ensuring Commonwealth agencies play their part by actively using eInvoicing with suppliers.

The Albanese Government welcomes continued work by digital service providers to offer low‑cost eInvoicing solutions on the market, particularly for small businesses, and encourages businesses to adopt eInvoicing.

During eInvoicing Week businesses will hear from software providers, industry and professional associations and government agencies on the benefits that eInvoicing is delivering to business, how to get started with eInvoicing and more.

These forums are an important opportunity for businesses to come together and we encourage participation in eInvoicing Week 2022.

We will continue to deliver educational activities to raise business awareness, further supply chain pilots to gain insights and drive adoption, and work with state, territory and local governments.

We will always back measures that help support our nation’s amazing small businesses to succeed and eInvoicing Week is another example of this.

I encourage small businesses to make the most of the week and find out more about how eInvoicing can help them.”

Quotes attributable to Assistant Treasurer, Stephen Jones MP:

“The Albanese Government is committed to doing everything we can, big and small, to lift productivity growth.

The eInvoicing initiative can help employers and employees work smarter and so they can concentrate on core business.

It can also help in the fight against fake invoice scams which prey on many of our business owners.”
