Electronic safekeeping of invoices and tax documents

Systems to file electronic VAT statements are starting to become mandatory in countries across Europe. This situation is creating a context whereby thousands of companies need to safeguard the e-documents they issue and the acknowledgements of receipt exchanged with the tax authority. It is very necessary for transactions to be safeguarded in a secure and certified fashion so there is legal proof in the event of an incident or third-party claim.

In some cases, it is necessary because storage with defined technical conditions is part of the technical requirements defined for the system by the administration. In other cases there may be no obligation but it is strongly advisable to store sensitive documents like the VAT statements sent to the competent tax authority under conditions of maximum security and integrity.
