10/3/2011: Invoices by E-Mail: Advanced Signatures are Sufficient
The "Steuervereinfachungsgesetz" (Simplification of Taxation Act) was passed a short while ago. Companies can now send invoices via e-mail without having to sign them using complex and costly qualified signatures.
ARTEC considers this a positive development, because it confirms the previous ARTEC strategy. The EMA® product range has always been based on advanced signatures and digital time stamps - a decision that has now once again proven correct. The technology ensures revision-proof archiving of e-mail messages and ensures that content cannot be modified once archived. These are important prerequisites for legally compliant long-term archiving.
Organizations can now easily send invoices via e-mail and simultaneously archive them in a legally compliant manner using EMA®.
