The obligation to use electronic invoicing in business-to-business transactions will come into force from 1 January September 2026. French publisher EsaLink, a specialist in the digitisation of B2B data flows, has chosen to back its solution with Cloud Temple's secure, sovereign infrastructure base.

Paris, 9 November 2023 - Designed to lighten the administrative burden on businesses, combat VAT fraud and steer economic policy with real-time knowledge of business activity, electronic invoicing is a key measure in the digital transformation sought by the government. From 2026 (see timetable below), this obligation will gradually be imposed on all VAT-registered businesses established in France.

As part of the process of registering with the DGFiP to become one of the French State's Partner Dematerialisation Platforms (PDP), EsaLink has chosen to meet data security requirements by relying on the infrastructure of Cloud Temple, qualified SecNumCloud by the ANSSI since March 2022. Cloud Temple will host the innovative HUBTIMIZE® E-INVOICING electronic invoicing solution developed by EsaLink.

The integration of the HUBTIMIZE® solution on the Cloud Temple platform will be facilitated by the fact that the two French players operate in a common technological environment, thanks to their security-focused design and their technological partnership with IBM. By joining Cloud Temple's trusted SaaS marketplace, EsaLink will be able to meet the data security requirements of the new regulations ahead of schedule and support businesses looking for trusted players to help them make the transition.

Faced with the challenges posed by the reform of electronic invoicing in France, our alliance with Cloud Temple represents a strategic step forward in securing B2B operations. This collaboration demonstrates our commitment to providing a reliable infrastructure that complies with the highest standards of security and digital sovereignty. At EsaLink, we are determined to support our customers with a solution that not only meets legal requirements, but also anticipates future needs in financial digitalisation. The synergy between EsaLink's technical expertise and Cloud Temple's state-of-the-art infrastructure is the foundation of our promise: a smooth and secure transition to electronic invoicing for businesses of all sizes.
