Missed the switchover? This is how you proceed

If you're a invoice issuer still sending the old payment slips to your customers instead of QR-bills, you're no longer receiving money. To resolve the payment shortfall, you should act quickly.

What to do?

Analyze how your company pays invoices today

With a payment instruction? In e-banking? Via payment software with file transfer? Or on the basis of more complex accounts payable processes with different software solutions?

Where action is required

In accounts payable bookkeeping and the payment software. Check the creditors master data and supplement it with IBANS and, if needed, with QR-IBANs. Are your readers or scanning platforms compatible? Make sure that you hardware and software QR codes can be read and processed.

Generate QR-bills easily and quickly yourself

A number of free QR-bill generators allow you to easily and quickly create QR payment parts yourself.

Topical question

Is a perforation mandatory on a QR-bill between the invoice and the payment part as well as between the payment part and the receipt?

Perforation of the payment part is mandatory if the QR-bill is to be printed out and mailed. Should the QR-bill with the payment part and receipt or the payment part with the receipt be prepared or electronically sent as a separate PDF document, the A6 format of the payment part and the receipt placed on the left-hand side is to be marked with lines. Moreover, on each line there has to be a scissors symbol or alternatively an instruction: “Separate before paying in” placed above the line (beyond the payment part).

Perforated paper may be obtained from printing companies.
