Moldovan Prime Minister Iurie Leanca requested the Moldovan State Tax Inspectorate (STI) to ensure that before September 2014, 150 public institutions are mandatory connected to the Moldovan E-invoicing platform to receive and automatically process e-invoices in accordance with a recent decision of the Moldovan Government. (Moldova declared itself an independent state in 1991 as part of the dissolution of the Soviet Union. )
The measure comes to limit the risk of corruption in the procurement process, increase transparency of public institutions and reduce their administrative costs.
Ministries, central public administration authorities, as well as regional and autonomous public institutions haven taken note of this decision, cooperate with STI and informed additional organizational structures within their jurisdiction about the mandated use of e-invoicing as from 1 September 2014.
In addition to ensure the connection to the automated “e-invoice” of the ministries, central government authorities subordinated to the Government and autonomous public institutions, the STI is to organise workshops about this e-invoice program. The purpose of the action is to promote the “e-invoice” within public institutions, thus causing a spill over effect by private companies with which public institutions have or may have business relationships.
