An interactive half-day workshop was hosted by the ECCT’s Tax committee and KPMG on the topic "How to Get Ready for the E-Invoice System". Presentations were delivered by Vivia Huang, Tax Partner and Carol Hsieh, Advisory Manager
at KPMG. The workshop was held to help ECCT member companies prepare for a new electronic invoicing system to be implemented by the Ministry of Finance (MoF). The new system will have a significant impact on many aspects of business operations, both internally
and externally with customers and suppliers. According to the MoF’s plan, it will implement business-to-business electronic uniform invoices, in addition to business-to-consumer EUIs that are already in use. The MoF will stop accepting new Computer Uniform
Invoices (CUI) users starting from 1 January 2017 and aims to completely terminate CUIs by 1 January 2018.
